Chicken Corn Black Bean Soup
Made as directed and the results were fabulous! Made it a second time with a packet of fajita seasonings and it tastes the same (go for which option is easiest for you!). I chose MOJO seasoned rotisserie chicken and topped the soup with lime juice, Mexican cheese blend, and fresh cut cilantro. Served with soft flour tortillas to the family members who don't enjoy crushed crunchy tortilla chips . We will definitely make this again as it is perfect as written.

Jumbo Shells with Asparagus, Prosciutto, Ricotta Cheese and Three Cheese Sauce
Made as directed without substitutes, I had way too many shells go to waste. Boil half as much noodles and you will have plenty to work with. In the future, I will omit the asparagus as it threw us off texture and flavor-wise. Also, I'd substitute prosciutto next time as it was hard to find fresh in the south. Good prosciutto is suppose to smell and taste similarly to bacon. It should never feel slimy to the touch and should slice easily.

Spaghetti with Buffalo and Tomato and Basil Sauce
We liked this recipe. It is something we would be interested in eating again. However, it's not amazing and I just don't understand why Barilla needs so many additions to their sauces to make it a tasty dish. Why does a sauce with basil in the name need a recipe asking for more basil? I chose a red wine that pairs with buffalo and wasn't impressed with the outcome. It's good but just another spaghetti recipe in my opinion.
