Vegetable-Infused Refrigerated Pasta
Buitoni North America, division of Nestlé USA, Solon, Ohio, introduced a new line of freshly made vegetable-infused ravioli.
Made with real vegetables, like sweet red pepper and spinach, and fillings made with the finest ingredients, such as Grana Padano cheese, artichoke hearts, asparagus and seasoned chicken, this pasta can be ready in minutes.
"We've always known how to create delectable flavors with our premium-quality pasta fillings tucked into fresh and tender pasta dough," says Riccardo Landi, chef from Casa Buitoni. "With this new line of freshly made pasta flavored with real vegetables, we're able to create exceptional flavor combinations by matching premium ingredients in the filling to the vegetable-infused pasta. Each variety showcases the beloved, clean flavors of the vegetables within the pasta dough. We think these filled pastas are quite beautiful. No two are exactly alike."
The Italian culinary team at Casa Buitoni developed the pasta dough by folding real vegetables into the dough to add flavor and visual appeal.
Varieties include Spinach & Artichoke, Sweet Bell Pepper & Roasted Chicken, Three Cheese & Asparagus and Chicken & Roasted Garlic Tortelloni, which folds garlic into the dough, adds filling of roasted chicken and a rich medley of Parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella chesses, before shaping the freshly-made pasta into classic tortelloni rings.
All BUITONI products are available at in the refrigerated section of grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.19 for a 9-ounce package and $7.29 for the family-size, 18- and 20-ounce packages.
