Tallarin con Pollo AKA Ecuadorian Style Spaghetti with Chicken | URBAN BAKES

As much as the traditional spaghetti with meat sauce was comfort food growing up as a kid, this particular Ecuadorian style dish was and still is one of my ALL-TIME favorite meals created by my grandmother. With its Latin flavors you’ll be amazed what you’re eating is simply spaghetti and chicken.

While my parents raised me in Delaware, their parents [my grandparents] remained in New York. During long holidays and summer breaks from grade school, my sister and I would travel to NY to stay with our grandparents who gladly took us in with open arms. They made sure we were always comfortable and our stomachs were full with every meal they made to our liking. Now, I’m sure you can say the same about your family… “there’s nothing like grandma’s cooking.” Am I right? Because this is exactly how I feel about this dish.

Similar to my mother with a pantry shelf of Barilla® boxes of spaghetti, my grandmother’s kitchen cabinet is just the same! Thus, I too, keep a good supply of Barilla® pastas because on any given day despite the miles between both my mother, grandmother and myself, I want to make sure I can easily whip up a 30-minute meal and take myself back down memory lane with the same taste and comfort growing up in their homes, from my own home.

Be sure to check out Barilla’s® assortment of pastas available at your local grocery and Walmart stores and if you’ve made a pasta dish with your family especially with a mom, aunt or grandmother, I’d love to hear. You can share your experience in the comment widget below.
