Time saving short cuts are all about multi-tasking and making life easier. I recently headed to BJ’s Wholesale Club to pick up a few items for the week. While I was there, I picked up a 6 pack of Barilla Organic Pasta and a 2 pack of Barilla Pesto Sauce. These ingredients will help me get dinner on the table, in just minutes, when I make this Simple Baked Penne Pesto Pasta recipe! @BarillaUS
What does one do with a 6 pack of Barilla? Well, this Barilla Organic Pasta 6 Pack has 3 boxes of Penne and 3 Boxes of Spaghetti. Perfect to provide variety and even better since I am in the middle of meal planning. I love the convenience of heading to #BJWholesale to pick up a few things in bulk so I can get dinner on the table even easier.
It is a major bonus that this Barilla Pasta is Certified USDA Organic and contains no GMO ingredients. I can trust that I am feeding my family only the highest quality ingredients! Plus, it cooks up perfectly “al dente” every time! I wouldn’t expect anything less from Italy’s #1 brand of pasta. #BarillaOrganic
When it comes to pesto, I am a bit picky. I have had some jarred pesto before that wasn’t up to par. This Barilla Traditional Basil Pesto is oh so UNBELIEVABLY PERFECT! Barilla’s pesto is so fresh tasting that it is perfect for your favorite Italian dishes; hot or cold. Looking for some great recipe ideas?

This spaghetti salad is a great side dish or quick lunch! I have even packed this in lunch boxes before. The whole family really enjoys it!
Oh so simple! Make your Barilla organic spaghetti pasta according to the package. Drain it and put it in a large bowl. Mix in your favorite veggies. I chose tomatoes, sweet peppers, mushrooms and olives. Stir them and then dress the bowl with Italian Dressing to taste. That is it! It is just that simple!
- 1 box Barilla organic spaghetti pasta (cooked)
- 1 cup diced sweet peppers
- 1 cup black olives
