Prince Pasta’s 100th Anniversary

Prince Pasta, born in Boston’s North End on Prince Street, is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Prince’s slogan is “Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti day.” Well, that’s a slogan we can stand behind. Everyday is pasta day in Miss Niss’s home.

Earlier this summer, Prince sent us 100th anniversary packages including Prince spaghetti, an apron and a recipe book. The recipe book is full of old fashioned pasta recipes I can imagine families making for big family gatherings. Think cheesy casseroles and pasta bakes. I’ve yet to make a recipe from Prince’s book, but I finally opened a box of Prince spaghetti for my own recipe.

First, let’s talk about directions – I really like the directions on Prince pasta boxes.

They make it easy to customize your pasta based on how many servings you are making and how firm you like it.

I decided to use one of our favorite sauces for my pasta. Rocco’s Healthy Alfredo Sauce has become a go-to sauce in this home. It’s been featured several times on this blog. I love it because it’s full of rich cheesy flavor, yet I know it’s light and I can feel good about eating it because it’s made with Greek yogurt.

I sauteed some chopped broccoli and peas and tossed together with the spaghetti and healthy alfredo sauce.

Rocco’s Alfredo Sauce with Prince pasta can help create a an easy weeknight meal. I made enough to have leftovers for a few days, too.

And I’m not joking about this sauce being my go-to. I recently made a pasta bake with it also.

For this Healthy Alfredo Pasta Bake, I made a double batch of the alfredo sauce and tossed it with about 3/4 of a pound of bow-tie shaped pasta and sauteed leeks, mushrooms and broccoli. I spread the mixture evenly in a baking dish, topped with more Parmesan cheese and Panko breadcrumbs. Then, I baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. It was like an alfredo spin on mac and cheese – creamy, dreamy, delicious!

What easy weeknight meals have you made lately?

The Prince spaghetti was complimentary.
