Until I was asked to review Fun Pasta I’d never heard of a company like it. Not only are there a ton of fun pasta packages to choose from, but there are pasta food kits too. How great is chicken noodle soup made with chicken pasta?! One thing that I really like about Fun Pasta is that they work with groups as a fundraising source. How many times have you had a fund raising campaign, or had people ask you to buy from theirs, and it’s for stuff you don’t want. I remember doing band fundraising and always selling chocolate. Yeah chocolate is great, but do you really want to waste a bunch of your money on it? Pasta on the other hand is great because most families buy a lot of pasta, so you can help raise money for an organization you like and you’ve got your pasta shopping done. How great is that?
I was blown away by all of the types of Fun Pasta that was sent for us to try. The offer such pasta shapes as Collegiate teams, animals, seasonal, and more. The shapes for all of the different themes are so cute and fun, and each bag has plenty of pasta to work with. Plus they all came with different recipes to help inspire new and fun ways to make pasta dishes. I’m sure we’ll try some of those ideas out later, but for my first use of the Fun Pasta I decided to go with a family favorite…home made mac & cheese, and in honor of the upcoming season I decided to use the bag of Halloween shapes.
- 2 cups Fun Pasta (or macaroni)
