In Partnership with Kraft Pasta Sides
We talked to Heather from OH and here’s what she had to say:
Heather on Pasta Sides’ Prep
Pasta Sides came with two herb seasoning packages instead of the one that it was supposed to. The directions did not state whether the sauce pack or seasoning pack should be put it first. I opted to put the seasoning pack in first which was a mistake as it just clumped up when I stirred it. Despite my mistake it tasted great. I would suggest revising the instructions so they state to put the sauce pack in before the seasoning pack.
What she Thought of the Flavor
I purchased the Creamy Alfredo Penne. It did have a thick, creamy consistency. The herb seasoning added a nice touch of unique flavor to the Alfredo that was not too overpowering. I would eat it again and possibly add shrimp or chicken to it.
How Heather Would Make Pasta Sides a Full Meal
The Pasta Sides itself doesn't need any additional favoring. To make it a complete meal I would add chicken or shrimp with mushrooms and possibly some cooked spinach. It had enough sauce where you could add those additional ingredients and not lose the herbed Alfredo flavor. Shrimp (or chicken), mushrooms and spinach pair well with Alfredo sauce.
Heather’s After Dinner Go-To
Being that my children are grown, quick meals are even more important to me now. The time I save on meal preparation can be used to get a nice walk in with the dog or go visit with my grown children at their homes.
