The Pasta Shoppe: Review and Giveaway




I was so lucky to be sent a box of various pastas from The Pasta Shoppe to try and to review! Pasta is a staple in the Daigle home so of course we were all willing to review! But as kids, and mom are, as soon as the Meringues were seen, they were the first tried! Devine, OMY Goshness, holy yummy were some of words used to describe the awesome melt in your mouth pieces of yumm! Not only do the come in Vanilla Bean, they also have Key Lime Coconut, Peppermint and Chocolate Cocoa Crunch.














Because we have all been feeling crappy due to this nasty ickness thats been going around, instead of giving the kids the canned chicken noodle soup, I decided to make The Pasta Shoppes version. Yes I had to cook chicken to add, you can use a canned chicken, but it paid off. It was good!




There are so many various shapes, there is no way I could cover them all.  My daughters loved the peace, love & happiness pasta shapes. Abby thought it was so cool to eat hearts!
They also have a large variety of seasonal shaped pasta! Not only Halloween but Christmas, Valentines Day, Thanksgiving and Jewish Holidays as well! There are just too many to list here! But you can see their full list of seasonal pastas HERE.


And they have Glutton Free food as well!  But for the College sport fans there is something extra special! Collegiate Pasta Shapes! AND they are only $5.99 a bag! Perfect for game days! No Maine Black Bears tho, sorry. 
There are also gifts and gift boxes. Perfect for the holidays and the hard to shop for!

You know how kids go the annual school fundraisers to raise money for school and bands and trips and such?? Well, The Pasta Shoppe offers a fundraisng program! I know I hate it when kids ask me to buy. I think the paper and candy are way over priced and I dont really like them. But just about every one eats pasta!  So that makes this the perfect fundraiser! And the packages are actually a useable size and the sweets are more than just a nibble sized nibbler! You can find more about their fundraising on their fundraising website. https://www.funpastafundraising.com/requestInfo.php

They have 2 pages on Facebook as well. Their main page, HERE and their Fundraising page HERE.

The founders of The Pasta Shoppe are John and Carey Aron. Their business is family run and home based in Nashville, Tennessee. Their pasta adventure began in 1992 during their honeymoon to Italy. They fell in love with pasta and the Italian lifestyle, and knew someday that they wanted to recreate a piece of Italy back home.
In 1994, they traveled back to Italy to understand exactly what it took to make the highest-quality and best-tasting pasta around. Then they added the fun part: hand-crafted bronze dies to create more than 250 different pasta shapes. From cat paws to Christmas trees to college logos, they have got a fun pasta shape for everyone.
The Pasta Shoppe creates small batches of quality pasta – no mass production. The plant is similar to the 'boutique' manufacturing plants found in Italy, home of perfect pasta. They buy all their pasta-making machines from Italy and fill them with only the finest ingredients available – 100% durum semolina flour and all-natural vegetable powders.

 Now the best part! One lucky person is gong to win a box valued at $30.00 worth of pasta plus their choice of 1 collegiate bag of pasta. Debras Random Rambles and >>YOUR BLOG NAME HERE<< are not liable for fufillment. Good luck!
