How about a fun giveaway to brighten up your Thursday?
I was recently invited to participate in the Summer Pastabilities Recipe Contest with HODGSON MILL®. As a huge fan of healthy whole wheat pasta salad, I simply knew I had to join in!
Before confirming my participation, I did a little browsing to learn a bit more about the company holding the contest.
Hodgson Mill is a family owned company that has been in operation since 1882. They produce stone ground, whole grain, and organic foods which range from cereals to flours to pastas and more! Their products contain no artificial preservatives, additives, or colorings and they have products which are gluten free and/or vegan as well.
As if that isn’t enough, in 2009 they announced their company’s new ‘green initiative’ to bring renewable energy to their food manufacturing facilities and their company headquarters. I LOVE this.
Since Hodgson Mill is an independent family-owned company, they often have to compete against larger corporate companies in order to keep their space on grocery store shelves.
I have a soft spot in my heart for companies just like these. Companies that have a story and a long history of tradition that is passed down from generation-to-generation. And Hodgson Mill definitely has a story to tell. Click here to read all about it.
For the contest, I will be receiving a few boxes of Hodgson Mill’s whole wheat to sample and use in my recipe.
Suffice it to say that I already have some deliciously fabulous summer pasta salad ideas floating around in my head—so I can’t wait to get cooking! Oh, the pastabilities!
Once I create my recipe, it will be pinned to the specially-created contest board on Pinterest so that you guys can select your favorite! Recipes that receive the most pins and likes will have the chance to win some amazing prices!
In addition, Hodgson Mill is offering one of YOU a delicious selection of assorted pasta for—a $25 value!
