Last updated on August 16th, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Barilla, the world’s No. 1 pasta brand, has announced the nationwide availability of its new line of microwaveable meals—single servings of pasta and sauce that are ready to eat after just 60 seconds in the microwave. They deliver the Italian taste and quality people have come to expect from Barilla in a shelf stable and portable meal, according to a news release.

Barilla microwaveable meals are available in five varieties including Mezze Penne with Traditional Marinara Sauce, Mezze Penne with Tomato & Basil Sauce, Mezze Penne with Spicy Marinara Sauce and in two whole grain varieties—Whole Grain Fusilli with Vegetable Marinara Sauce and Whole Grain Mezze Penne with Tomato & Basil Sauce.

“Developed with busy professionals in mind, Barilla microwaveable meals are shelf stable so you can throw them into your bag on your way out the door, or keep a supply in your desk drawer,” says Giannella Alvarez, president of Barilla America. “We wanted to reinvent shelf-stable meals with product superiority and quality ingredients that are all natural and have no preservatives. This way, a delicious and nutritious meal is conveniently available anytime and anywhere.”

Barilla microwaveable meals are made with 100 percent natural ingredients and no preservatives and provide between 10g and 11g of protein. They are an excellent source of fiber, and the two whole grain varieties also provide a good source of iron, the news release says.

“Barilla’s microwaveable meals provide the healthy nutrition people are looking for, all with 320 calories or less,” says Anna Rosales, nutrition manager for Barilla America.

Barilla microwaveable meals are $3.29 per 9-oz. package and available in the microwave meals section in major supermarkets throughout the United States, including Albertsons, Giant Foods, Jewel-Osco, Kroger, Publix, Safeway, Stop & Shop, Target and Walmart.
