More Buitoni! & Giveaway

Remember a while back when I tried out the Buitoni wild mushroom agnolotti?  Well, a representative from the company contacted me and asked if I'd like another coupon, and a calendar!  

More free pasta? yes please!
And of course, now is the time of year to get a 2011 calendar, since the new year is a little more than a week away.

When the calendar arrived, I was pretty excited.  In addition to having pictures of gorgeous Italian scenery, and food....
The calendar also has a recipes that make use of Buitoni products.  Its like a cookbook and calendar in one! 

I can't wait to try the 'March' recipe:  Buitoni Riserva Quattro Formaggi Agnolotti with pesto, asparagus and green beans.  YUM.

Plus, this will keep me from forgetting to buy this year's calendar and having to browse through the clearance rack and decide between little kittens, and Dilbert.  Pictures of pasta are much more ME.

So, would you like a Buitoni calendar? and a coupon for a Buitoni product?

  1. I do love your Scooper Bowl post because you and Michelle just looked so happy with all that ice cream... even if I was jealous and wished I was there too.

    Ha ha... I always browse the sale calendars too.. puppies and stuff.

  2. I loved the chicken, caramelized onion and kale pizza post. A combination of my 3 favorite foods!

  3. I am a new reader of the Clean Plate Club and I have been slowly ready backwards through the archives (probably not the best way to do it...ha ha) But so far I have to say I like your sourdough post. Mostly because for YEARS i've wanted to make my own starter and attempt to make sourdough bread, but haven't the courage to do so... Maybe I'll try to tackle it around the holidays!

  4. I think my favorite post has to be the Clover Food Truck post because it was one of our first lunch outings! (Megan, Scooper Bowl ranks up there too!)

  5. I think I'd have to say the King Arthur posts are some of my favorite! Obviously because I was there and love remembering how fun that was!

  6. I love the King Arthur posts, of course! Best day ever!

  7. I loved your potluck recap and the shrimp and grits you made!

  8. Also, my favorite pasta shape is probably bowtie!

  9. My favorite pasta shape is rotini. I like stuff to get stuck in the curls.

  10. oooh I love your recent post with the idea of putting caramelized onions on pizza!

  11. Aw, not that I'm copying Simply Life, but my favorite pasta shape is also Orecchiette. (Although I didn't know what it was called until I looked it up!) I just call it "ear-shaped pasta". :-)
