ShopRite Imported Pasta and Veggies – A Perfect Combination

Posted by , October 27th, 2011

With the start of the school year being so hectic between homework and sports practices or games, making a meal that starts with pasta means we can have dinner on the table in no time at all.  Pasta is just one part of the equation, with a few healthy additions you’ve got a meal the whole family will love.

When we returned from a recent vacation, I was thrilled to see that I had a shipment of brand new ShopRite products to try!  A box full of different varieties of ShopRite Imported Organic Specialty Pasta. We are a big pasta eating family so, this was right up our alley.

This meal ended up being quite easy to prepare with items I had on hand.  I had some sliced portobello mushrooms and fresh baby spinach  I had picked up at ShopRite, but hadn’t used yet so they were included.  I didn’t want to bother defrosting chicken or another protein, so I opened a can of ShopRite cannellini beans to “beef” up the meal.

This meal was so satisfying and on the table within 30 minutes – including the time it took to for the water to boil.  The leftovers reheated really well, too!

Fusilli with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

1 pound ShopRite Imported Organic Fusilli pasta, cooked according to package directions
2-3 tablespoons ShopRite Imported Olive Oil
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can ShopRite cannellini beans, drained and rinsed well
1 package sliced portobello mushrooms
4 ounces fresh baby spinach
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning


  1. Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add mushrooms.  Allow to cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, beans, spinach and Italian seasoning and stir to combine.  Allow to cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Serve the mushroom and tomtato mixture over the prepared pasta.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As a POTLUCKTM blogger, I received the ShopRite Imported Organic Specialty Pasta from ShopRite for free.
