Win a year-supply of pasta!


Here's your chance to enjoy fantastic pasta at home for a year, for FREE! Catelli is giving away a year-supply of their Healthy Harvest Ancient Grains pasta to one lucky Family Feedbag reader. Just think of all the pasta dishes you could make: carbonara, arrabbiata, primavera, pomodoro, alfredo, puttanesca, marinara and, yes, pesto (if you haven't seen the goofy video of me making pesto and dancing with Chef Lynn Crawford yet, check it out here on The Vancouver Sun website).

The Catelli event I attended last week at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver offered food bloggers an opportunity not only to learn about the Ancient Grains line of pastas, which are made with 5 ancient grains - quinoa, amaranth, millet, sorghum and teff - but also a chance to get into the kitchen to try them out for ourselves while making Chef Lynn's recipe for Chilled Noodle Salad with Ginger Wasabi Dressing. Oh my word, guys, I love this salad. And the spaghettini pasta is perfectly tender and silky.

Get the fantastic recipe below and enter to win a YEAR-SUPPLY of Catelli Ancient Grains pasta.
