Hello Fresh - Rigatoni Caprese

Tonight my daughter and I cooked up the second of three meals from my first Hello Fresh delivery. This was a pasta meal, so a little easier and faster than the previous one...and I did add some extra veg (zucchini and mushrooms) that I had here at home to the meal. Again, it was quite good - needed a little S&P at the end, but I must say that so far I am impressed. 

 Here's the spread - minus the fresh pasta. Sadly, I instead of fresh pasta I subbed some of my own gluten free pasta for my husband and daughter.
My dish. Finished with some delicious buffalo mozzarella, basil and pine nuts. 

Also, I received a reply yesterday from Hello Fresh, regarding my meat/protein inquiry. I was pretty happy with their response. They noted that they source from these two places: 

I hope that their website information accurately depicts their actual practices, as they sound like decent places to get proteins from. So I may try one week with a meat option, but we'll see. 

For those of you who are interested in trying this out too, I was sent a promo code that offers a $50 discount on your first box. If you're interested, feel free to use "STAYAT" when you check out. If anyone ends up trying this, please let me know. I am curious to know what other people's experiences and opinions of this are. 

Have a great day!
