momstown Victoria Enjoyed the Barilla Pasta PLUS at "On Top of Spaghetti" Junior Chef

This month we had an extra special Junior Chef sponsored by Barilla PLUS® Pasta! momstown Victoria moms and kids made a pasta necklace craft together, cooked Barilla PLUS® spaghetti and meatballs in the kitchen, and then took our spaghetti outside for a fun picnic event!

After painting pasta for our necklace beads and leaving them to dry, our momstown Victoria moms and kids headed to the kitchen and baked pre-made Italian style meatballs, heated up two jars of all-natural tomato sauce, and cooked the Barilla PLUS® spaghetti. It was the easiest meal in the world to make...but would the kids like it? We soon found out...the kids, moms AND dads LOVED it!

Our Victoria moms were impressed by how easy, tasty and nutritious this meal was. Each 85g serving of Barilla PLUS® spaghetti pasta has 14g of high quality protein, 6g grams of fibre and 0.3g of Omega-3 with ingredients like lentil and chickpea flour, flaxseed, egg whites and oat fibre. Barilla PLUS® is also available in four different varieties including penne, rotini, spaghetti and spaghettini. All of the moms who attended the event received a box of Barilla PLUS® spaghetti to take home! 

This multigrain pasta is perfect for my family of five, with three kids of different tastes and appetites, a mom who is vegetarian, and a dad who dislikes whole wheat pasta. When everyone started asking for seconds, I was hooked! My final verdict? Barilla PLUS® is a
  • simple and easy meal solution for our busy life
  • reliable source of protein, fibre, omega-3 and iron 
  • delicious and a definite crowd pleaser!
Very little is needed to enhance this authentic Italian pasta, and you can find so many easy pasta recipes using fresh ingredients on the Barilla Canada website, such as Pasta Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil
