Weeknights are busy, I understand. Sometimes getting dinner on the table is the last thing on your mind. With Summer quickly approaching, I know you would rather be sitting on the deck, taking a walk at the beach or even watching your child’s baseball game.
What if you could serve your family a delicious meal, that they would love, in about 15 minutes? Are you in?
One of my main goals here is to help you get in and out of the kitchen fast, so you can spend more time with your family and on the things you love to do.
Creating special memories with your family doesn’t mean you need to spend all day in the kitchen. This 60 seconds to perfect pasta will help!
For this Weeknight Mostaccioli, simply cook the Barilla Ready Pasta in the microwave for 60 seconds, according to directions on the package, then add to the skillet, add the Barilla Marinara Sauce and heat through. After a few minutes, you can add the cheese. We like Mozzarella and Parmesan, but you can use your favorite cheese. Then heat until the cheese is melted.
You will have dinner on the table in a flash! And more time to do the activities your family loves.
The new Barilla Ready Pasta is not only convenient, it’s also Non-GMO and is made with three simple ingredients, sea salt, olive oil and pasta. You can cook it in the microwave and each package is two servings, making is super for lunches and snacks as well.
For this easy weeknight meal, we added a salad from Marketside at Walmart, it’s all pre-cut and ready to use. And a loaf of Italian bread.
