Pasta Shoppe Review and Giveaway


This is a review and giveaway that no one is going to want to miss! I was sent a box full of fun noodles from The Pasta Shoppe and I was surely not disappointed! I love pasta (what's not to love??) and now I've fallen in love with this brand. They don't just make cute pastas-- they make gourmet pastas too with flavors like spinach basil garlic angel hair and they even have GLUTEN-FREE pasta. One of out favorite things they carry are Meringues! Perfect for a light, sweet dessert that melts in your mouth (we tried the Vanilla Bean ones and they were amazing)! I decided I had enough treats and noodles to share with my loved ones and everyone who tried them LOVED them!


We love the University of Michigan Pasta Salad they sent us, it will perfect for game day! You can use the noodles for your own recipe or follow one of the recipes on the bag that use the vinaigrette mix they send you. I think my family's favorite pasta meal so far is the Chicken Noodle Soup! I made it on a day when none of us were feeling well and it was just so perfect! It comes with the flavor packet so all I had to add was chicken, peas, and carrots! It is seriously so perfect for a cold Fall day and it was so easy to put together! 

Don't worry, gluten-free readers! The Pasta Shoppe did not leave us out! They have gluten-free Tagliolini Pasta that they sent me! I didn't do anything too special with it-- I used it as a spaghetti noodle substitute one night while my family had regular spaghetti noodles but it was amazing! I hope they consider adding more gluten-free pastas into their mix!

Overall, we love this brand! The noodles are fun and taste delicious! I just love looking through the different pastas and I have to stop myself from ordering them all! Can you imagine having Happy Birthday Pasta for your child's birthday or Heart Pasta on Valentine's Day? The possibilities are endless! This brand truly loves what they do and it shows! 

Ashley tried the Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair pasta with some cheese tortellini and tomato alfredo sauce!
