ConAgra Foods, Omaha, Neb., expanded its Bertolli brand to include new Italian-Style Tortas.
Similar to a calzone or stromboli, the single-serve tortas feature rich cheeses, premium meats and slow-cooked sauces surrounded by a golden flaky, made-from-scratch crust.
“Consumers want restaurant-quality food at home without a lot of prep time, and this includes pizzas, calzones and other popular Italian dishes,” says Jenn Freeman, vice president and general manager. “Our Italian-Style Tortas give them just what they want—hot, melting cheeses paired with flavorful sauces wrapped in a flaky, made-from-scratch crust. In addition, ConAgra Foods is known for its breadth and depth of frozen items, including pot pies and other hearty meals, and the unique torta adds to our product variety and helps consumers expand their options for at-home dining.”
The Three Cheese Marinara Torta offers authentic flavor using ingredients like creamy ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and a rich, basil-seasoned marinara sauce, slow cooked from scratch using fresh tomatoes from California.
For a heartier option, the Italian Sausage Torta adds spicy, made-from-scratch, Italian sausage to rich layers of cheese and sauce.
Both options boast a suggested retail price of $2.99.
