If I had to pick my one true food vice, it would be pasta!!! I simply love pasta, any which way you prepare it. So, when I was offered the chance to try and review pasta from The Pasta Shoppe, I jumped at the chance!!
The Pasta Shoppe does not make your everyday ordinary pasta. Their slogan is “The World Is Full Of Pastabilities”, but after trying their amazing pasta I think I would say EVERY meal is full of Pastabilities!!
Here is a bit about The Pasta Shoppe from their website:
The Pasta Shoppe is in love with creating small batches of quality pasta – no mass production. Our plant is similar to the ’boutique’ manufacturing plants found in Italy, home of perfect pasta. That’s why we buy all our pasta-making machines from Italy and fill them with only the finest ingredients available – 100% durum semolina flour and all-natural vegetable powders.
At The Pasta Shoppe, we’re constantly using our noodle, and our latest love is a delicate specialty product we call Petite Pasta Nests. The manufacturing process is labor intensive, but the result is delicious! Tender sheets of homemade pasta are fed into a specialized cutter, creating light and fluffy noodles, which we then nestle into beautiful angel hair nests. When cooked, the texture and taste is similar to fresh pasta. Heavenly!
We’re all about savory, but our sweet tooth speaks to us, too. We listened when it said, ‘meringues!’ Our Divine Meringues are crunchy yet creamy because we cook them low and slow. They also hold sweet surprises, like white chocolate and chocolate chips! Mmm. You’ll want to pop meringue after meringue into your mouth and that’s okay – each cookie has just 7 calories.
We’re so glad you stopped by The Pasta Shoppe for a visit, and hope you do often. We’ll leave you with this thought and our motto: “The World is full of Pastabilites!”®
We were lucky enough to be able to try a wonderful selection of pastas…
CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
A Best Seller! Homemade tastin´ soup that makes 10 cups and feeds a hungry family fast – ready in 15 minutes! And the kids love to see the little chicken shaped noodles!
Short cut recipe: Add 10 cups of water, one can of chicken + a can of peas and carrots – yummy! Serves 6-8.
We loved this soup!!! I usually cook soup from scratch, but this was a super easy and delicious alternative for a busy evening meal.
What to serve this weekend? How about our best selling chili mix over some cute snowman and snowflake pasta! Pasta, Chili Mix, and recipe options all included…..your family and friends will rave! 25 minutes, crock pot friendly, serves 6-8. Spice Level = mild-med.
This was a huge hit with the family!! We love chili, and while this was more of a chili soup than what we usually call chile, it was AMAZING!! Super easy and delicious!!
When you team up with our collegiate pasta salads, your tailgate party wins. Sports fans love our selection of more than 50 officially-licensed team pasta salads! Your favorite team’s mascot, colors and logo are celebrated in shaped pasta, and a Game Day vinaigrette seasoning mix is the extra point. (And the crowd goes wild!)
These salads are so cool!!! Now, I will be honest, I didn’t try this pasta salad. We are not huge sports fans, but we have family that bleeds both orange and green, so I will be saving this and preparing it for one or another of our winter extended family gatherings. I KNOW it will be a huge hit!!
Serve Halloween Pasta to your little goblins before trick or treating on Halloween night! A delicious family recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Pasta is on the label – and a fun tradition to begin!
This is the cutest pasta!! Kids LOVED this. We made a delicious pasta salad with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette dressing and marinated artichoke hearts mixed with these spooky noodles… excellent!!!
SPINACH BASIL GARLIC ANGEL HAIR
Elegant and Delicious. Our light and fluffy Petite Pasta Nests add a gourmet touch and flavor to any meal. 100 calories per nest. 12 nests per bag make portion control simple! Enjoy!
Oh WOW!!!!! Now these are simply amazing!! These are so good you only need a bit of butter and garlic tossed with the noodles to make a fantastic side dish.
Aside from making and selling amazing pasta, The Pasta Shoppe also has a fundraising division you can learn about at Fun Pasta Fundraising. Now let me tell you, if a local team or club comes around selling these wonderful pasta goodies my checkbook will be hurting!! If you have a group who may be interested in raising some funds, you can request more info here.
The awesome folks over at The Pasta Shoppe want to make one lucky reader very happy with a $30 Pasta Goodie Box!!
I received a free product for the purpose of this review.
