Giada de Laurentiis Pasta Giveaway!


I've been "unplugged" as they call it for the past couple of days, but wanted to "plug" back in quickly for a GIVEAWAY!

If you are a watcher of the Food Network, or even The Today Show, you'll see lots of Giada de Laurentiis. She is known for her Italian cooking and simple, clean recipes. Giada has started her own cookware and food line at Target.

I love Target, as most women do, and now Giada has products there as well! Even better.

One lucky reader will win a Giada de Laurentiis pasta package! Which includes:

  • one box of whole wheat penne rigate
  • one box of orzo
  • one bottle of parmesan garlic vinaigrette

The perfect ingredients to throw a pasta party! With a nice side salad, of course.

Here's how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite pasta dish.
  2. Become a follower of Sweet & Savory on your Google Reader.
  3. Become a follower of Sweet & Savory on Facebook.
  4. Post this giveaway on your blog, or spread the word on Facebook.

Four chances to win! Each chance gives a separate entry. Contest ends at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 17th. The winner will be chosen randomly on Monday morning.

Have a great Friday everyone!

  6. whatttttttttttttt? Giada has her own pasta now? I saw the cookware line, but not the pasta! That is so exciting. I <3 Giada (as does my husband ;)). She is so cute and her meals look effortless but taste incredible. My favorite pasta-ish dish is Ellie Kriegers 4 cheese macaroni (i.e. squash mac n cheese)

  7. my favorite pasta dish is cacio e pepe (cheese & pepper). it's a classic roman dish and it's really easy to make. no sauce required--the melted cheese + hot pasta water become a sauce. SO good. it's on my blog if you're interested.

    So my family has been hosting a Swiss foreign exchange student this year and he is a phenomenal cook! He speaks French and for sure has that French flare for great cuisine. Gotta say my favorite pasta is his vegetable lasagna made with zucchini slices as faux noodles in addition to the regular pasta noodles and a B├ęchamel sauce in place of cottage/ricotta cheese! To.Die.For.

  37. We like Lasagne made with homemade sauce. We got the sauce recipe from an Italian friend of ours. It is so wonderful.

    My 2 year old grandson is so in love with Giada. He's loved watching her since he was a baby. He was calling out her name when we walked past her cookware display at Target.
