The Pasta Shoppe & Fun Pasta Fundraising Review and Pasta Goodie Box Giveaway

By on 10/01/2013 12:52:00 PM

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen here --and, I really do love almost every minute of it.  I serve pasta at least once a week--it’s quick, easy and with the addition of simple veggies and a protein--it makes short work of dinner prep after a long day out and about.  When I was offered the opportunity to review and sample a few pasta selections from The Pasta Shoppe and its fundraising site, Fun Pasta Fundraising, I jumped at the chance.  

Over the past couple of weeks, we sampled pasta, created recipes both on our own and with the company’s recipes and kits--and look forward to creating some fun pasta gift baskets for the upcoming holidays!  You can even enter to win a $30 Pastashoppe.com pasta goodie box of your own!

PastaShoppe.com and FunPastaFundraising.com offer huge selections of pasta.  I spent a long time flipping through the The Pasta Shoppe catalog and fundraising catalogs online and in print.  I loved the fun shaped pasta in fall, and holiday shapes!

Being lost in Ohio State country--I was drawn to the Collegiate Pasta Salads These are perfect for our game day parties--or in themed gift baskets with football shaped pasta or cheerleading pasta.  

Pastashoppe.com caters to both kids and adults.  As a mom, I love adding fun pasta shapes to soups and dishes for the girls--but, I was also happy to see more grown up items like Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair pasta nests too!   Since we are slowly moving toward healthier meal options, I was pleased to sample Gluten Free Tagliolini--which I used in a variation of my shrimp and vegetable pasta recipe.

Pastashoppe.com offers tons of gift ideas.  The girls and I frequently put together homemade, holiday gift baskets.  I found so many pastas, soup kits, and ideas that we could use for our holiday gifts--even a pre-made Holiday gift box.

Need a school or youth group fundraiser?  After sampling pasta options from Fun Pasta Fundraising, I would certainly look forward to working with them in a fundraiser.

Would I recommend PastaShoppe.com and Fun Pasta Fundraising?  The sites offer quality pasta at a comparable price to other such sites.  The pasta that I received was safely packaged (no broken pasta shapes) for shipping, and arrived in brightly colored, fun packaging.  I would encourage you to check them out as you plan your holiday shopping!
