Recently I was given an opportunity to try out the new Barilla Microwaveable Meals!

The pasta dishes come in 5 varieties and I was thrilled to see that two of the options were whole grain.

  • Penne with spicy marinara
  • Penne with Tomato and Basil Sauce
  • Penne with Traditional marinara
  • Whole Grain Penne with Tomato and Basil
  • Whole Grain Fusilli with Vegetable Marinara

The first time trying the product I decided to try the Whole Grain Mezze Penne with Tomato and Basil Sauce.

Preparing the meal could not be any easier.  After removing the tray from the cardboard packaging you pull back the film to the dotted line shown on the left and pop the dish in the microwave.  60 seconds later, you heard me right, sixty seconds later your meal is ready!

Now for me, this was the coolest part.  The sauce tray comes out of the pasta bowl making it so easy to add the sauce to the pasta.

The portion was actually pretty large. I figured with its nutritional value that the portion size would be smaller but this lunch filled me up… which I attribute also  to the 9-11 grams of protein per serving!!

Neal also LOVED the meals, taking one for lunch both Wednesday and today!  As a wife, packing his lunch couldn’t have been simpler. He loved the spicy marinara and I will definitely be using the coupon online to buy a few more!

    I really like meals that are ready in 60 seconds. I’m never prepared so I always end up starving and trying to find food to eat.

    Are these frozen or can you keep them in your pantry (aka my desk at work)?

    The sound really good! I love pasta, but my family gets sick of it. : (
    How is it for price? I like the convenience of those type of meals, but I’m really trying to cut back on our grocery budget. *gasp!*

    This meals look so tasty, plus they use wholemeal pasta which i have never seen ready meals in the UK use before, i’m so gutted i live in the UK not the USA as i will never get to try these.

    Especially when i could seriously eat tomato pasta everyday, i love it!

    You won’t happen to know the Weight Watcher Points on these? I went to my local store to find them and the shelve was cleared. I was goign to check the point value before buying.
