In our house, we eat pasta or soups at least 3-4 times a week so it is important to us that the pasta is:
- Reasonably priced
Fun Pasta from The Pasta Shoppe fits all requirements.
Ok, so I said that the bonus is that it is fun right? Well, there is a secondary bonus too. They have a great fundraising program that I think is better than many of the fundraisers that my kids participate in! I mean seriously, how many tubs of cookie dough does one family need? Besides, I do NOT need that kind of temptation around the house!
Since we are pasta eaters, their program works much better for us since we would be purchasing products that we actually need, not just want.
About Fun Pasta Fundraising
One of the things I LOVE the most about Fun Pasta is that there are soo many different shapes to choose from! We personally received:
We also received these fun pasta nests
And these delicious meringues
The first day after we got them, I decided I wanted to do MY chicken noodle soup, so I chose the Halloween Pasta and went to work.
Now there really is nothing special about my soup, it is simply some bouillon, precooked frozen diced chicken and pasta, but to me….it is delicious!
Now I was a little skeptical at first with the pasta because I have cooked with shaped pasta before and they were always either too crunchy which no pasta should be or they turned to total mush and the shapes did NOT hold. I was pleasantly surprised that not only were they the PERFECT texture, but as you can see above, the shapes held their own. That to me makes them a winner!! Oh, and of course they are pretty tasty too!!
As far as the variety of shapes to choose from, they have over 250 shapes in themes such as sports teams, hobbies, animals, holidays and everyday fun pastas!!
I will be sending this info off to a friend who manages her son’s soccer team and to the PTO ladies at both my kids schools. I would rather have a pantry full of these pastas any day!!
