Cooking can be a whole lot of fun, especially if you can put something in the recipe to give it that special pizzazz! That special ingredient, will always make your meals so much more fun, in every sense of the word! Pasta is one of the world's favorite dishes, but what if you could make it even more special and fun all at the same time? Let me tell you how, you can do that!
Have you ever heard of "The Pasta Shoppe"? The Pasta Shoppe loves creating small batches of quality pasta, no mass production. It's the home of perfect pasta! The Pasta Shoppe has machines from Italy and fills them, with only the finest ingredients available. The pastas are 100% durum semolina flour and all-natural vegetable powders.
John and Carey started their Pasta Shoppe in 1994. Their first pasta was shaped like a boot and a guitar, which inspired them to create more fun shapes for holidays, themes, Collegiate logos, and other occasions. Today, they offer the world’s largest selection of fun pasta shapes and have expanded to other niche pasta products. These shapes can be packaged alone or with a delicious seasoning packet. They offer their best selling chicken noodle soups, pasta salads and chilies that will impress your crowd every time! Their pasta is hand-crafted bronze dies to create more than 250 different pasta shapes! From cat paws to Christmas trees to college logos, there's a fun pasta shape for everyone!
The Pasta Shoppe has an awesome fundraising program, that your family and friends will love! Their goal is to help groups raise money, with a simple program offering unique and delicious products! Last year they added some fun contests and sweepstakes to enhance their overall program. They've had lots of winners!
So, if you're looking for a unique fundraising program for schools, churches, groups or organization this would be the perfect one! Everybody loves pasta! If your group sells over $4,000, your group will keep 50% profit and for orders less than $4,000 your group will keep 40% profit! You can go to Fun Pasta Fundraising and request more info!

I would highly recommend The Pasta Shoppe!
