Father’s Day is quickly approaching y’all! We have plans with our entire family on Sunday for Father’s Day so we celebrated a few days early with a home cooked meal from Rao’s Homemade! If you guys have never cooked using products from Rao’s Homemade before, you should try it. They are delicious! Below is a picture of a few of their popular items that we are trying out.
Liv is my mini-me and is always wanting to do whatever I’m doing, to the point that when I get dressed in the morning and give my outfit a once-over in the mirror, she copies my every move. So, of course, she was all about helping me prepare this meal for her Daddy! For this meal we cooked the fusilli pasta with the the arrabbiata sauce to top it.
I added some grilled chicken, just seasoned with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, since my hubby likes to have some protein with his pasta. As a side, we whipped up a simple mixed green salad and topped it with a dressing made from the Rao’s olive oil and red wine vinegar.
I have to say, this meal was incredibly delicious. My husband usually likes Italian inspired meals a little more than I do, but I couldn’t stop eating this one. The arrabbiata sauce was spicy but oh so good. And the pasta, y’all, seriously, so good. Like, surprisingly better than the pasta I usually buy from the grocery store! I can’t wait to try out the other sauces and pastas! And of course, Liv had a blast helping me. She even told me the next day “I help you cook, Mom!”.
