Mediterranean one pan pasta dish, featuring zucchini, tomatoes, artichokes, and Barilla Pronto Pasta.
Looks like a party to me. I could just dive in. Same for you?
Well guys, it is SO easy to make this dish. It is the perfect solution for holiday entertaining.
I use a simple little trick called Barilla Pronto Pasta…. one-pan, no boil, no drain. That’s right. You can toss it in the pan with the rest of the ingredients.
That’s what makes this meal so fitting for the holidays. Wouldn’t you rather spend the time with your guests, topping off glasses of Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon, than cooking for hours in a hot kitchen? I know I would. Holidays are all about catching up with our loved ones. Let this meal cook itself, while hitting all the right notes for a scrumptious dinner.

I love rosemary in pasta dishes. It’s so fragrant. To me it tastes just like the holidays. Kalamata olives and dried oregano add the finishing touches. So much flavor here.
Plus, you can really make this dish your own. Pick your own herbs, sub feta cheese for Parmesan, or use one of the many other delicious varieties of Barilla Pronto pasta; Spaghetti, Linguine, Rotini, Elbow, all of which pair beautifully with Estancia wine.
And for dessert? Continue the theme of effortless entertaining by serving your guests the Pepperidge Farm Cookie Collection. There is something for everyone.
I’ve got my eye on you, Milano® Cookies.
