Today we are featuring a recipe from Barilla’s “The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook” in celebration of World Pasta Day – Lemon Spaghetti.
In honor of world Past Day we choose to make the Lemon Spaghetti recipe featured in “The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook: because it was quick, easy, and it gave me an excuse to use fresh basil from my garden. It was hard, however, to choose one recipe for the cookbook as there are a lot of simple recipes that would help any mom overcome her barriers to getting a meal on the table in little to no time at all.
Many people think since I work at home that I have nothing to do all day but cook delicious meals and desserts, but believe it or not I have even less time now for cooking than I did when I worked in corporate America. I’m not alone either, more than half (58%) of parent polled by Barilla say their life is more hectic now than a year ago. The leading activities that presenting a challenge are all things I’m faced with now more than ever being a work-at-home mom, (1) work, (2) household chores, (3) errands (4) kids’ after school activities, and (5) kids’ homework.
Pasta provides a solution for me because (1) I always have a box of Barilla in my cabinet and (2) it is simple to prepare!
