“Classico Creation” for National Pasta Day! – Review (And a Giveaway)




Did you know that October 17th is National Pasta Day?  Well I have to admit I never knew this in the past but it is a cool idea, and I wanted to make something yummy to celebrate national pasta day this year.  Classico pasta sauce makes making your dish this pasta day easy and delicious.  Classico Creamy Spinach and Parmesan Sauce 
 is available now but only for a limited time, so if you would like to experience this tasty sauce, make sure to pick up a bottle or two soon.  
 I was very fortunate to be able to try this new sauce. I am a very busy working mom, so easy and delicious dinner options are a must for me. I made my easy ziti recipe the other night, and substituted my usual plain tomato sauce with the new Classico Creamy Spinach and Parmesan Sauce. This recipe is so very easy to make and it only takes about a half hour from beginning to end. I was able to get home from work, get dinner ready help my daughter with her homework, and have everything done by the time my husband got home from work.

We were able to have this delicious dinner as a family. My husband complemented on the sauce. He asked me if I “doctored” (adding more spices etc. to make it taste better) the sauce because it did not taste like bottled sauce. I told him I did not add a thing to the sauce itself, he was impressed and said we should get this sauce again.

My family loved Classico, and we will be purchasing this sauce in the future. So if you are looking for a sauce to top your favorite pasta this pasta day October 17. Make sure to check out the great sauces and recipes on the Classico site.
