Bringing Back Prince Spaghetti Day

4:30 AM

Most Gen-Xers and older are probably familiar with the classic advertising campaign from Prince Pasta: the little boy (Anthony) running through the narrow streets of the North End of Boston to get home for dinner because "Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti Day." As an college student studying advertising, this memorable commercial was highly regarded. Prince Pasta became one of the country's iconic brands, firmly establishing itself in our food culture. 

Since pasta is in regular rotation for weekday dinners, it was easy to convince the family to bring back Wednesdays as Prince Spaghetti Day (or Prince Penne Day, or Prince Linguine Day... you get the idea). Just as they love to remind me not to cook meat on Meatless Mondays, or beg me to make Tacos on Taco Tuesday, Wednesdays are now reserved for some of our favorite pasta dishes. Today we're going with the classic and crowd-favorite Spaghetti & Meatballs combo. 

In celebration of National Pasta Month (which kicks off today), Prince is partnering with NEBO to create delicious and easy recipes for families using Prince pasta. Plus Prince will be offering cooking videos every Wednesday during National Pasta Month here. And if you happen to be in Boston today, head to these locations between 4:30-7pm as Prince will be handing out Prince Pasta Dinner Kits: 

North Station (near the “performance” sign)135 Causeway St 
South Station (near the hub/unpaid area)700 Atlantic Avenue 
Back Bay Station (DD on the left wall when entering from Dartmouth St.)145 Dartmouth Street

As my kids like to say, "Mangia! Mangia!"

Disclosure: Thank you Prince Pasta for sending me a Prince Pasta Dinner Kit. As always, all opinions are my own.
