I love, love, love Trader Joe's. This supermarket chain finally decided to open up in my area a few months ago. I heard a lot of great things about Trader Joe's but I had never been in one until a store opened up here. I was immediately hooked. I prefer to prepare my own food, but Trader Joe's sells some of the most delicious prepared foods that I have ever tasted. Most of their prepared foods I cannot eat (thank goodness) because I am vegan and most have ingredients that I prefer to stay away from. I was surprised to come across Trader Joe's Penne Arrabbiata that I can actually eat because it is dairy free. The back of the packages says that it was prepared in Italy. The cost is $2.99 per bag at the time of this post.
Trader Joe's penne arrabbiata is so delicious that I have to eat some at least once a week for lunch or dinner. I went to Trader Joe's this morning; purchased a package and had it for lunch. It takes about ten minutes to heat up on the stove (I never use a microwave oven). This is great to have on hand for days when you don't feel like cooking. It is fast, easy and very tasty. You also get a good portion in each bag. It is even more delicious to eat this dish with some crusty Italian or French bread.
Trader Joe...you ROCK!
