Quick Italian Dinner Option

In Partnership with Kraft Pasta Sides

We talked to Bailey from ME and here’s what she had to say:

Bailey On Pasta Sides’ Prep
Pasta Sides is easy to make, but cooking the pasta takes longer than average, 15 minutes rather than 8 or 9. The instructions were very simple to follow.
What She Thought Of The Flavor
I picked the Creamy Tomato Shells flavor. It was a very acidic tomato flavor but the Parmesan balanced it well. The pasta was a little thick and the sauce a little loose.
How Bailey Would Make Pasta Sides A Full Meal
I would probably pair this with chicken/veal/eggplant parm. The protein would help to balance the acidity better. One package isn't enough for a full meal for 2 people, so having a main protein dish would be good.
Bailey’s After Dinner Go-to
I like to watch TV or a movie or sometimes play a board game after dinner. Pasta Sides is quick and doesn't create a bunch of dishes to clean up so it's faster to get out of the kitchen.
Pasta Sides is a good option for an accompaniment to a main protein dish on nights where you don't really feel like cooking.
