Barilla Review and Giveaway

I am addicted to pasta. When I think of pasta, Barilla is the first name that comes to mind. You can guarantee that there is always multiple boxes of pasta in my kitchen cabinets. I make it a lot and it's such an easy and delicious dinner. There's so many ways to prepare it that one can never get tired of it.

Barilla is a company that produces many various types of pasta. Whether you are in the mood for spaghetti, linguine, penne, tortellini, they have those and much more. I also really like that Barilla makes whole grain pasta because it's important to get your daily intake of grains in.

I was sent a 10 lb box of pasta with 15 boxes of whole wheat spaghetti, angel hair, linguine, and penne. It looked like I robbed the grocery store!!


I am very familiar with Barilla and it's my go to brand for when I buy pasta. The pastas are always delicious and extremely fresh. What I love most about pasta is that you can create so much with so little. Take one box of pasta, add marinara sauce, add shrimp, chicken or sausage, add some parmesean cheese and you've got a delicious restaurant quality meal in your own home. You can switch up the sauces and instead of marinara use alfredo, pesto, olive oil, and much more. Be creative and have fun. Everyone loves pasta and you should incorporate it in your next dinner party!

  160. I would love to win because I have six kids along with my husband and myself to cook dinner for. I serve pasta often because it does not cost a lot and is quick to make. Throw a salad on the side and you have dinner for a bunch of people without breaking the bank. lezanac@yahoo.com
