Plentiful Pantry Review and Giveaway

I've been receiving so many different kinds of food lately, everytime UPS or Fed-Ex rings my doorbell I can't wait to see what's next! I've been enjoying receiving all of it and it's fun to taste and try new things.

About Plentiful Pantry
Pasta Partners was started by Debbie and Jody (a husband and wife team) in 1992 as a result of our ongoing passion for great food. I did the recipe development, Jody did the tasting. I had worked in some great restaurants and took pleasure in entertaining our friends with fabulous meals. When asked for my recipes, I would tell them about the chopped garlic, fresh herbs and different spices I used. Now, we are not saying that our friends are lazy (we prefer to view them as “time challenged”) but they wanted an easier way. That’s when the fun began. I converted all of those good fresh ingredients to dried and we were in business.

In the beginning we focused on ways to make quick and easy pasta dishes that would rival those in the best restaurants. As we have grown and added products we still keep in mind everything must be quick and easy as well as healthy. And last but certainly not least the flavors must be outstanding. After all, “you can get average in your grocery store”! (Taken from website.)

This company offers desserts, pasta, pizza kits, sauce mixes, sauces, side dishes and so much more. Each product is guaranteed to be fresh and delicious.

Well yesterday I received a large box from Plentiful Pantry. This company has sure helped to make my cabinets more plentiful! I received: three cheese risotto, pumpkin cheesecake bars, pumpkin cobbler, tortilla soup, chicken and dumplings, marinara wine sauce mix, and rainbow angel hair with a small bottle of attached olive oil. Wow!! I did not tell this company any of my food interests, but they somehow sent so many things that I love!







I love that the packaging of the pumpkin desserts are shaped like pumpkins, how cute! Since I have been eating a lot of desserts lately I decided not to make the desserts just yet. I am temped to make them very soon as they sound delicious though. Last night I made the rainbow angel hair with the wine marinara sauce. The sauce was very easy to make, all you needed was a can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste. You cook it all together with the included sauce packet. It cooked very fast and in no time I was enjoying sauce that tasted like something out of an Italian restaurant. It was full of spice and flavor and just was so mouth-watering good. I added some dried basil and stirred it into the sauce just for that extra something. I love the rainbow angel hair too, it added some color to an exciting dish. The angel hair was delicate but had a bit of chew to it too. It was really excellent paired with the sauce. Since the cold weather is coming up soon the tortilla soup and chicken and dumplings will come in handy. I think I might make the risotto with my dinner tonight too!

Thanks to Plentiful Pantry I will be eating delicious, fresh items for a few weeks to come!
