When my kids are home, I prepare 3 balanced meals daily for the whole family – even for my husband who works from home. Now that my kids are in school, I haven’t stuck to a good lunch time schedule. I’ve recently been introduced to Barilla Microwaveable Meals that has easily changed that! In just 60 seconds, you can now enjoy a delicious Italian dish that is made with 100% Natural Ingredients, No Preservatives and less than 320 each.
Barilla Microwaveable Meals Review
When my kids are at home, I have no choice but to prepare a healthy lunch for them. When they are at school, both my husband and I get so busy working that we don’t take time to prepare food. Other times, I’m actually at my kids’ schools volunteering as a lunch mom. Lunch time usually equals BUSY times. If there are no leftovers in our refrigerator, we make unhealthy choices too many times. I have been out of the “microwaveable meals market” for 7 years since I started being a stay-at-home mom. I had no idea how delicious frozen microwavable meals could be!
We tried all 5 flavors of the new Barilla Microwaveable Meals last week for lunch. You can choose from 5 flavorful varieties including Tomato & Basil, Marinara, Spicy Marinara, Whole Grain Tomato & Basil, and Whole Grain Vegetable Marinara. I say “flavorful” because each meal has a distinct flavor, coupled by mouth-watering aroma. We were very impressed by the taste of each meal. They even offer 2 whole grain options that offers 3X the fiber too
I like that I can now enjoy a healthy, satisfying lunch in just 60 seconds. There is no excuse to skip lunch or grab unhealthy snacks while we are pushing through work, or on-the-go!
Speaking of on-the-go, with sports season starting this week, I could even see myself preparing Barilla microwaveable meals for my family for those busy nights when we only have 1/2 hour between getting off the school bus and getting to practice! So many of my friends just give their kids snack cakes or fast food before practice and don’t eat dinner until 7:30 or 8pm at night. It’s crazy. Even when we are rushed, there are healthy, substantial meals available for your family, like the Barilla Microwaveable meals. As moms, we are always busy and I always feel rushed. Even so, it is good to remember that we can still provide our family with healthy food choices.
Barilla Microwaveable Meals are easy to prepare in just 60 seconds. Peal the package lid part way, and cook for 60 seconds. Could it be easier?!
I like that the sauce and the pasta are cooked in separate sections. I buy Barilla pasta all the time for my family, so it is good to know that we can enjoy the same consistent pasta and flavor that we are already use to.
Once the meal is cooked, simply pour the delicious sauce of the pasta. There is plenty of sauce for the pasta, which is very important for a satisfying experience. I remember microwaveable meals I had years ago never had enough sauce. I love that Barilla pasta doesn’t skimp.
I have to say again how tasty these microwavable meals are. My husband has requested that I buy more of the Spicy Marinara because it add just the right amount of kick to it and a lot of flavor. My favorite is Tomato & Basil in both regular and whole grain. If you love the taste and flavor of basil, you will really enjoy this dish. As soon as you pour the sauce onto the pasta, you will breathe in the freshness and full aroma of basil – yum!
