Dreamfields Celebrates #HealthyPastaMonth with New Recipes and Prizes

“Healthy Pasta Month is always our favorite time of year because we get to share fantastic pasta recipes with our fans,” said Liz Housman, Dreamfields Director of Marketing. “

October is the month to celebrate pasta and Dreamfields is at the forefront with its annual #HealthyPastaMonth extravaganza. For 31 delicious days, new or improved recipes guaranteed to tantalize taste buds will be unveiled along with chances to win free pasta.  Just follow the hashtag #HealthyPastaMonth or visit http://healthypastamonth.com/ to access to all the action connected with the month-long festivities. 
 
Each day of October, Dreamfields will share pasta recipes from prominent food bloggers and the Dreamfields Kitchens on its #HealthyPastaMonth calendar and via its Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts. That’s a total of 31 recipes to please the palate of every pasta lover at the table. Recipes will follow weekly themes including: Go Green, Spice of Life, Marinara-thon, and Fall-ing In Love. Additionally, there will be frequent chances to win a free case of Dreamfields pasta and other delicious prizes. 
 
Dreamfields makes any pasta dish better thanks to its delectable flavor and added nutritional benefits. Made from premium durum wheat semolina, it has the same taste and texture as traditional pasta.  However, Dreamfields has the added bonus of having five grams of fiber per one cup cooked serving – that’s twice as much fiber as traditional pasta – and seven grams of protein. Look for the black box in the pasta aisle of your local supermarket or grocery store.
 
“Healthy Pasta Month is always our favorite time of year because we get to share fantastic pasta recipes with our fans,” said Liz Housman, Dreamfields Director of Marketing. “From entrees and salads to scrumptious side dishes and quick and easy recipes for busy days, Dreamfields is dedicated to providing the best-tasting pasta recipes to fit every taste bud. It’s our passion.”
