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!!
Barilla Microwaveable Meals are each less than 320 calories and are 100% natural with no preservatives. Sign. Me. Up!
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!
A big thank you to Barilla for the new microwave meals! I really, really enjoyed them!
