Thank you to Vons for sponsoring this post!

On a day to day basis, there’s a good chance you’ll find me in one of two places, in the kitchen or at the grocery store. Fitting, since I’m a food blogger and all! 😉

Sometimes I go to the grocery store and get straight to business, I could pretty much navigate my local Vons with my eyes closed and get everything I need. I always joke that if Supermarket Sweep were still a show, I’d win every time!

Other times, I just peruse the aisles of Vons looking for new recipe inspiration. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that I’ve partnered up with Vons to do just that!

For today’s recipe inspiration, I focused on their Signature line of products, which I always keep stocked at my house. The Signature line consists of more than 4,000 products, whoa, that’s a lot of inspiration!

With everything from pasta and condiments, to coffee, soups and cereals, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on several items from the Signature line to whip up a delicious and simple recipe!

My first stop was the condiment aisle for the Signature Kitchens® Original BBQ Sauce. For me, I always equate BBQ sauce to spring and summer. As a kid, that was the only condiment I would use, so I put BBQ sauce on everything!

I then headed over to the meat department and grabbed a package of Signature SELECT™ Bacon, because Bacon + BBQ = BAE!

To finish up my shopping trip, I stopped by the dairy aisle and grabbed several kinds of cheese. I then swung down the pasta aisle to pick up several varieties of Signature Pasta.

When I got home and headed into the kitchen, I came up with this Baked Spaghetti Recipe with BBQ Chicken and Bacon. Let me tell you all, the flavor of this dish is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD!
