Lunchtime in my house is crazy. I have one son getting off the bus from morning kindergarten and I have another getting on the bus for afternoon preschool. Oh and this is usually the time Olivia is getting up from her nap. I find myself starving usually and not in the mood to cook a lunch. I don’t have time (or energy) either to run out then and get fast food, especially when I have to drag two kids with me.
Barilla Microwaveable Meals have been my savior! They are a healthier option than what I probably would have eaten and they are delicious. With 100% Natural Ingredients, No preservatives, Relatively low in calories (about 320 calories per meal) and Two whole grain options, Barilla Microwaveable Meals are the perfect choice! Looking for protein? These meals have about 10 grams of protein too!
There are five varieties:
• Mezze Penne with Tomato & Basil Sauce
• Mezze Penne with Traditional Marinara Sauce
• Mezze Penne with Spicy Marinara Sauce
• Whole Grain Fusilli with Vegetable Marinara Sauce
• Whole Grain Mezze Penne with Tomato & Basil Sauce
The cabinet-microwaveable (no refrigeration required)meals are ready in 60 seconds. Just peel to vent, microwave, and dump the sauce in. Plenty of sauce and its not just running tomato sauce either, its chunky rich tasting sauce. I have tried three so far and loved them. I especially love the long shelf life as I don’t have to worry about freezer burn or expiring in my refrigerator. These would be perfect too to take to work, which is what I am pushing my husband to do! They are quick, convenient, delicious and affordable! You can find them for a suggested retail price of $3.29 at your local grocery store.
