ShopRite Imported Pasta and Sauce For An Easy Vacation Meal

Posted by Kayris

When my husband and I went to the beach for our ten year anniversary and left the kids with my parents, I knew we wanted to make the most of every moment. That didn’t include slaving over a hot stove in our condo.

So when I packed food for the four day trip, I took easy stuff.  Sandwich fixings, fruit, granola bars, etc.  And I packed Shoprite pasta and pasta sauce. 

For dinner one evening, we had a simple meal of pasta with a meatless sauce, sliced fruit and a nice crisp cider.  It was ready in less than 15 minutes and couldn’t have been easier to make.  But because I used great quality ingredients, the meal was amazingly delicious.

I used ShopRite Imported Specialty Trottole, a super fun shape that retained a nice firmness when cooked, and topped it with ShopRite Imported Pasta Sauce.  There are several varieties of sauce, for this meal we had the Parmesan flavor.  The sauce was fantastic, flavorful and nicely seasoned, and it also has whole cherry tomatoes in it.  It was the perfect meal for a vacation day.  Even better, it cooked fast and easily, leaving us precious time to get back to the beach and the sand and the waves.

Because vacation shouldn’t be more work than staying home.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As a POTLUCKTM blogger, I received the ShopRite Imported Pasta Sauce and Pasta from ShopRite for free.
