I love pasta, but honestly, we’re getting tired of same old same old spaghetti. So I’m happy to share some San Remo love your way! 5 Lucky Winners get to win a pasta gift set with different pasta shapes to try!
When I want pasta shapes other than the usual spaghetti and macaroni, I usually gravitate towards San Remo. They have many different shapes and sizes available, which I like. I find that their pasta retains their “al dente” firmness and don’t become mushy even if overcooked. That’s because San Remo is made from a wide variety of premium grade, 100% Australian Durum Wheat, and the family behind the San Remo brand has been making pasta since 1936!
SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE WITH SAN REMO
Many people, like me, express our love by cooking for our loved ones. Cooking is our language of love.
You can show your love by trying new pasta dishes and using quality pasta like San Remo. Some of the different San Remo pasta available include Angel Hair, Fettuccine, Penne, Rigatoni, Vegeroni, Spaghetti, Trivelle (small spirals), and Instant Lasagna!
Instant Lasagna has actually been difficult to find in regular supermarkets – it’s not that common, so thank you San Remo for making it available. I’m tired of doing the extra step of having to boil the pasta separately, and with instant lasagna, I can just make the sauce and assemble the lasagna using dry instant lasagna straight from the box! The instant lasagna will cook during the lasagna baking process. What a time saver!
I’m also trying to do more “one-pot-pasta” dishes because… there are less things to clean and less steps to do! 😀
And you know what else? Pasta salads are my new loves. Yesterday, I ordered an Arugula Pasta Salad with Creamy Parmesan from a coffee shop and the serving was small, hahaha. It was delicious but was only good enough for snacking since the portion size was small. So I’m now inspired to make my own pasta salad using San Remo Trivelle or Vegeroni Spirals dahil nabitin ako sa pasta salad kahapon 😀
Actually, I plan to make 6-8 portions of pasta salad in individual containers, with the veggies and the sauce and the cheese in separate containers / compartments just like how it’s done at the coffee shop. I’ll keep them in the refrigerator, ready to snack anytime!
I find that preparing some food like that ahead, ready for snacking, prevents that situation where you’re standing in front of the refrigerator and you feel like there’s nothing to eat, and you end up eating chocolate bars, cookies and ice cream instead even if you don’t feel like eating chocolate bars, cookies and ice cream… Hahaha, does that happen to you, too?
At least the pasta salad is healthier than cookies & ice cream 😀
