As a family of six, pasta is a big part of our weekly meal plan and as a mom I am continuously trying to make healthy, well balanced meals for my children.
I was sent some Mueller’s 100% whole grain pasta to try along with a Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Stainless Steel 4 Piece 12 Quart Pasta Steamer set. This was not the first time my family had tried Mueller’s Whole Grain Pasta. I have purchased it previously and love that my kids love it just like any other pasta and at the same time they are getting a pasta that is better for them! Score for mom in the yummy tasting, healthy feeding department!
With summer upon us and BBQ dinners a big part of our summer meal plan, I decided to make our usual BBQ side of macaroni pasta with Mueller’s 100% Whole Grain Pasta as a healthy alternative. As I suspected. the whole family enjoyed their pasta salad like they normally do and again mom scored! I silently gave myself a pat on the back for doing good for my family.
I also enjoyed the Cuisinart Stainless Steel 4 Piece 12 Quart Pasta Steamer Set! Not only is it beautiful, but as I learned from a manufacturer of kitchen utensils, stainless steel is the best way to go when it comes to pots and pans. If you take care of it, it will be good to you, last a very long time and cook your food properly and evenly. All of these are very important features when I shop for pans!
