Breaking the "Out of the Box" Flavor Stigma

In Partnership with Kraft Pasta Sides

We talked to Carly from AR and here’s what she had to say:

Carly On Pasta Sides’ Prep
Kraft Pasta Sides was extremely easy to make and included all the needed ingredients for a tasty side without having to open (and waste) an entire jar of sauce. It took roughly 16 minutes to make from start to finish. The instructions were simple and few... though the sauce pouch required a knife/scissors to open.
What She Thought Of The Flavor
I had the Creamy Tomato Shells. It was sweet and at the same time tangy. I loved the creaminess -- reminds me of a vodka sauce, almost. I most liked the combination of the sauce flavor with the included Parmesan.
How Carly Would Make Pasta Sides A Full Meal
I would add pre-made pre-sliced chicken. There is plenty of sauce to cover that too. It could move this from a "side" to split with your spouse to a meal for yourself. The product name doesn't lend itself well to being perceived as a full meal on shelf.
Carly’s After Dinner Go-to
Going on a walk around the cul-de-sac is our routine after dinner. But first, the kids have to wait for us to finish dishes. This product would help because all the prep is in one pan... thus fewer dishes.
Pasta Sides have easy prep and delicious... I meant to share it as a side with my kids, but ate the whole thing for my lunch. :)
