Barilla Helps Make Quick Meals That Make A Difference

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Barilla®.


Barilla PastaI am always in the market for quick dinner ideas, I have such a hectic evening schedule. Getting home around 6pm with two young kids means we’ve only got a bit of time to do homework, eat dinner, bathe, pick out clothes, pack lunches, brush our teeth, and read books before bedtime. They’ve always got some other agenda, so I feel like I am at battle with them to get stuff done! As much as i’d love to cook hot, fresh meals every night, I simply don’t have time for it.


How cool would it be to be able to get dinner on the table in a hurry, AND help feed others at the same time? Barilla®, one of my favorite Italian pasta and sauce brands, has always made it easy to make quick meals on school nights. Boil your pasta, heat a jar of their tomato and basil sauce in a skillet, add some fresh onion, basil and other veggies, and EAT! Barilla makes it so easy to prepare a flavorful meal, the ingredients they use make such a difference in the taste.
