I’m pretty much a huge pasta lover. In fact I’ve never met a pasta dish I didn’t like… but I still have my favorites and this is one of them! When I make it I like to use Barilla® sauce because it’s has the perfect balance of flavors!  Every jar of Barilla® sauce makes it quick and easy to prepare delicious meals the whole family will enjoy.

I also like that Barilla® has partnered with Feeding America – the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks! You too an easily help by buying a jar of sauce to ‘taste the difference and make a difference,’ and then Barilla® will make the difference with a donation to Feeding America! Cool right?

For every jar of Barilla® sauce purchased from 4/1/14 through 5/31/14, Barilla® will donate $0.05 to Feeding America’s National Produce Program with a minimum donation of $150,000!


On busy weeknights I need quick recipes and I also don’t want to spend too much time washing the dishes so I created this one pot bolognese recipe. It’s really easy and everything is cooked in one pot. I use  Barilla®  because it has a real taste from real vegetables… you van taste the difference! It’s made from all natural, quality ingredients like vine-ripe tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and fragrant herbs.


The fresh taste of Barilla® Sauce will make a difference in your meal while you make a difference for someone else.  It’s simple – when you buy a jar of Barilla® Sauce, Barilla® will donate 1 pound of fresh produce to Feeding America to support those in need, up to 4.2 million pounds.
