3 Ways To Eat Your Veggies At Pasta Pantry
Find Your Veggies In The Pantry
Pasta Pantry is known for Real Food, Real Fresh, Real Fast. We believe in providing options for a healthy and quick meal; 2018 is proving to be full of hustle and staying fuelled is the key ingredient! We love feeding families and understand the importance of sharing a meal together between swimming lessons, social events and homework. More often than not, that “table time” is the pause button in life that we can all relate to amidst the daily grind.
As we settle into this new year, health and happiness is at the forefront. A good hearty meal doesn’t have to weigh you down and, as we all know – balance is key. Enjoy the following healthy selects from Pasta Pantry: our three favourite ways to eat your veggies!
Pasta Pantry’s Homemade Tomato Vegetable Sauce
An Italian classic, loaded with vegetables.
When it comes to our Vegetable Tomato sauce, we don’t hold back. We use only the best vegetables possible – celery, carrots, onions, garlic, red and green bell peppers, zucchini, and of course, tomatoes. But why do we use all of these ingredients? Besides being tasty, these vegetables provide a wide spectrum of health benefits. All of these delicious, nutritious vegetables are packed into our homemade sauce and ready to take home or eat in with your favourite combination of house-made noodles!
Classic Minestrone Soup
Our lunchtime favourite!
“Some of the earliest origins of minestrone soup pre-date the expansion of the Latin tribes of Rome into what became the Roman Kingdom (later Roman Republic and Empire), when the local diet was ‘vegetarian by necessity’ and consisted mostly of vegetables, such as onions, lentils, cabbage, garlic, broad beans, mushrooms, carrots, asparagus, and turnips.” Thank you Wikipedia! This is a go to staple for a hearty meal at Pasta Pantry, especially at lunch! Loaded with fresh vegetables and simmered with our house made pasta, this soup is sure to hit the spot – pair it with a salad for bonus points!
Creamy Italian Salad
If you’re looking for veggies, our Creamy Italian Salad is the main attraction! Tossed up with freshly chopped romaine lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and purple cabbage with a homemade creamy Italian dressing, this salad is perfectly paired with a Tuscan Chicken Breast or in front of your favourite pasta dish. Remember, we cater! Order up a tray of this crunchy Italian favourite for your next event.
We look forward to feeding our community the freshest most quality ingredients throughout 2018 as we all achieve our goals towards health and happiness. Let’s Eat!
