Al Dente Pasta and Sauce Giveaway


Contest is now over: winner has been emailed:




I recently wrote a review for the Al Dente Pasta and Sauce that I loved. Not only did I love it but so did my kids. You can read the review that I prepared earlier here. Let me remind you of a few of the great reasons that I loved Al Dente Pasta and Sauce.
  • The speed of cooking the noodles which was exactly as the bag says 3 minutes.
  • The healthy atmosphere of the product no sugar in the sauce but rather sweet grated carrots.
  • The fact that as a diabetic who can not take in a lot of carbs Al Dente makes a great low carb pasta.
  • Another one of the top reasons I love the Al Dente Pasta and Sauce is because they take the time to care enough about the great ingredients that go into their pasta and sauce

  1. When we first got married, Hubby and I first both worked nights. I told him to wake me up at 5 pm I wanted to make spaghetti for din din!
    He knew I would be tired and said no.
    I said, wake me up no matter what!

    5pm, he woke me up! I was a Bear with a sore Butt! I went to the kitchen, opened a box of spaghetti, it spilled all over the floor! I got a dust pan and broom, and swept it into an ice cold saucepan full of water. 4 or 5 minutes later I drained it, poured cold sauce over it and told my NEW hubby he was going to eat EVERY bite! (ewwww!) He said NO I am not! And I went back to bed! hahahaha
    Our 25th Anniversary is April 25th! hahaha That is THE Worst thing I have ever done to him! hahahahh

  6. I love the episode of I Love Lucy where she goes to the Brown Derby and ends up behind a fanous celebrity and is spying and then has to pretend to be eating spaghetti. So when I was small I decided I wanted to do see how much spaghetti I could shove in my mouth like Lucy. So when my mom cooked some spaghetti I sat down and started twirling it and shoving it in my mouth. Boy did I get in trouble especially since that was dinner. BUt it was fun. :)

  11. My oldest son, who is now 13, took his first steps on New Year's Eve while we were having a huge family party. We were eating linguini with clams...and he had been in his highchair with his linguini. When he took his first steps...everyone got so excited..he got so excited...and a linguini noodle came out of his nose:) I wish we had camera phones back then:)

  25. The only reason this is funny because I cannot believe that I went out and bought one-The famous Pasta Express where you pour boiling water in the thing with your pasta and it cooks perfect pasta. Perfect? I think not! It was all clumped together and pure starch slime. It was a total joke. Ha Ha!

  30. I was told that you can tell that spaghetti is done when you throw it at the fridge and it sticks. One night I took a piece and threw it..it stuck and fell to the floor. My husband wanted to try..same thing. We started laughing and kept throwing to see who could get it to stick. Finally, a piece stuck and stayed..dinner was ready! We were laughing so hard.

  33. A funny story: When my cousin first got married, she invited some of us over for a spaghetti dinner. There were only 6 of us, including her and her husband. She had never made spaghetti before, and she said she didn't know how many noodles to cook. She judged the amount by what it looked like dry, and when we arrived, she had 2 huge bowls full of cooked spaghetti noodles. She had made 4 pounds of the noodles!

  35. Funniest Spaghetti Story, it a cooking disaster, Picture 20 family memebers for dinner, Spaghetti, I am draining the pasta into a Very large Colander resting across the sink.. Notice Resting ACROSS the sink. You get the picture, the Colander decided to Topple and about half of the spaghetti went down the drain.
    We started feeding people with what was saved and whipped up more Pastas, Not spaghetti it was gone. We had some Penne, with some Bowtie, and some Macaroni. It worked. Thanks for the giveaway

  39. When my daughter wa in headstart she came home with a picture frame decorated with alaphabet pasta, which I of course oohed and ahhed over. She was so proud she insisted on getting a box of pasta and making one for nanna too. So we did and the next day we delivered it to a thrilled nanna. After we got home she took her nap and I started a soup for dinner...to which I added the rest of the pasta. When she sat down to eat she burst into tears! She was sure nanna didn't like it so I put it into the soup! We had to return to nannas to check before she would eat her soup! Though we've had to reglue many times both nanna and I still display them!

  50. I lived in Italy for four years and was able to enjoy some of the world's best pasta :) I learned about a whole new world of pastas and not once ate spaghetti -- there were too many other choices available. It was my introduction to gnocchi which still to this day is one of my favorites. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  62. My Italian grandmother used to make homemade ravioli and pasta, andmy sisters and parents would go over every Sunday for dinner. She would have pasta drying on towels in every room! The ravioli was spectacular, and her sauce, I thought, was thin but tasty. My sauce is my pride, I am soooo good at sauce and meatballs, my family clamors for it. I like to serve all types of Pasta, especially the mini ones, and Bowties.

    I was making pasta in a box and was really, really tired. I opened the box, dumped the pasta into the boiling water, stirred, set the timer and left. I came back to find a lovely pot of finished pasta - and the sauce package nicely boiled as well. Ew.
