I received a Wildgrain Bakery Box at no cost plus compensation for this post. Read on to see what I did with the contents of my box and the delicious scallop recipe I made. All opinions are my own. All links are affiliate links including the one above.

There is nothing like fresh bread and homemade pasta. NOTHING. But oftentimes finding the time to make it yourself is just not going to happen. Enter Wildgrain.

Wildgrain will send you a box o’deliciousness right to your door. It arrives well packed, ready to heat up and serve to your family and friends. I used the tonnarelli pasta I received in my recent box to make an easy 30 minute dinner one evening.

How Was the Scallop and Pasta Dish?

Oh so delicious, and so easy to make thanks to the frozen, fresh pasta provided in my Wildgrain Box! If I wanted I could add a nice toasted roll to the meal also included in the box, but for the two of us we were fine without.

If you were having company you could offer a selection of delicious loaf of bread or rolls with your meal. All thanks to Wildgrain. Make your entertaining easy and tasty with this wonderful subscription box.
