Pasta. A definite staple in our house.

We have been Barilla pasta product devotees for years. As the years have passed, we seen many wonderful additions to their product line, including our favorites... their Plus Pasta and our new favorite Whole Grain Pasta

Over the past year or so, we, as a family have been trying to incorporate more whole grain pasta into our diet. The one major complaint from the kids was that it didn't taste as good as regular noodles. So when we had an opportunity to participate in the Barilla Whole Grain Taste & Share Challenge.... we were IN!
