Buitoni Refrigerated pasta/sauce review & GIVEAWAY!! Ends 4/8 - 2 winners!

I know.. ANOTHER Giveaway!?!?  Really, this is awesome!!!

Here we have a chance to give away not one but TWO VIP full-value coupons and TWO $25 Wine.com gift cards!!!

About Buitoni: Buitoni believes in using simple, high-quality ingredients to create extraordinary meals. Buitoni has more than 40 varieties of all-natural pastas and sauces. With a commitment to simple preparation, the brand recently added a new line of premium frozen meals for two. Check out the wide variety of products at http://Buitoni.com/Gallery.

I like to go grocery shopping on Fridays after work, I find the supermarket is less crowded than on the weekend and most sales around here start on either Thursday or Friday so I'm good with that too.  Last Friday I went and picked up the kid from Lacrosse practice and headed to Stop & shop (which is my favorite grocery store in my area.. it's clean and the prices are really good)

I told The kid to pick out a pasta & sauce from the Buitoni selection and that's what I would prepare for dinner.  He picked out Whole wheat 3 cheese tortellini and the reduced fat pesto with basil.  Dinner was ready in less than 10 minutes.. served with a salad and it was so delicious! The Tortellini cooked up in about 7 minutes and were perfect, the filling was creamy and not too salty and the pasta was just right, not too tough like many whole wheat pastas tend to be.

 Now, I'll be honest, I was skeptical.  I don't buy prepackaged food because I have an allergy to certain preservatives so I have to be careful. But I have been pleasantly surprised with Buitoni pastas and sauces.  Next up I'm going to try one of the frozen meals!

Now, for the giveaway details:
Just leave a comment and you're entered to win 1 of 2 wine.com GC's !!
 I want to know:
Does your family eat dinner together every night?  
What would you choose from the Buitoni collection to make for your family?

Giveaway over, comments are now closed.  
Congratulations to the winners & Thanks to all who entered. Stay tuned for more great giveaways to come!

I'm proud to say that my family eats together at the dinner table every night! My husband cooks dinner on the weekends and my girls and I cook together on the week nights.

If I were to choose something from Buitoni to prepare for my family, I would most likely pick raviolis with a marinara sauce.

We have not tried Buitoni yet. But I will now. I cook every night while my wife works in our bedroom office. The kids have clean up.

Milaxx said...

If you consider me and the cats family, then yes.

We eat together almost every night. And we love the cheese tort - simple and easy for a quick meal!

Misty said...

We don't have kiddo's but we do eat together while the cats beg us to drop something :)
We love the Mixed Cheese Tortellini topped with my special homemade sauce (tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms, etc...yum)

Kristen said...

No, we don't eat together every night, but it's nice when we do :)
I like the refrigerated chicken ravioli.

My daughter is an adult now but we try to eat dinner together when she is home.
I like the pasta sauce and spaghetti.


MommaKiss said...

I remembered another fave! Buitoni pesto sauce. OMG. They even have a reduced fat one - and it's divine. Mmmmm.

Momma Told Me said...

We eat dinner together EVERY night, no exceptions!

We'd pick the triple cheese raviolis!

My hubby does shift work so three out of four weeks its dinner at 5 without fail and sometimes it seems like i cant find enough different meals to make! I like the Buitoni chicken and cheese ravioli

susitravl said...

Until our kids both got after-school jobs we ate together every night. Now my husband and I eat at the table together - never in front of the TV.

kolpin said...

we eat at the same time, but not the same foods. i'd choose the chicken and mushroom ravioli.

We eat dinner together 7 days a week. Their "Spicy Beef & Sausage Ravioli" sounds really yummy and I don't think I have seen it at the stores here yet.

nel said...

My Husband works second shift so we only eat dinner together on the weekends..

I would pick raviolis with a marinara sauce.

Id love to win

MommaKiss said...

Know what else I love? The ravioli.

MommaKiss said...

And pesto. Did I mention their reduced fat pesto sauce?

jennifer said...

It's just the hubby and I but he works swing shifts so it's not always dinner that we eat together. Most of the time it's lunch but we'll make that our big meal for the day.
I'd choose the marinara sauce.

Most of the times we do have dinner together sometimes my husband sometimes has to work a little bit late. I would like to try five cheese cannelloni!

jayedee said...

every night! we eat together every night. it was a practice i started when the children were little, and we've continued down thru the years.

i'd love to try the spinach and 3 cheese tortellini!

thank you for hosting this nice giveaway


Sue said...

The four cheese and chicken ravioli looks so great. Would love it. We eat every night that we can, just super busy with four boys in sports!

Stephanie said...

I wish I could say we eat dinner together every night. But between my husband's work schedule and sports, it just doesn't happen. We do the best we can, but I make sure the kids definitely don't eat alone.

I would love to try the Whole Wheat Four Cheese Ravioli.

My family does not eat together every night. We haven't tried Buitoni yet, but the Whole Wheat three cheese tortollini looks delicious!
