Chick'n Florentino. Made with the company’s signature Gardein chick'n bites, broccoli and spinach in a creamy roasted garlic and lemon sauce.
Italian Style Rigatoni n' Saus'age. A savory combination of pasta, peppers and onions along with new Gardein Italian saus'age bites and a rich marinara sauce.
"Consumers today want healthier, sustainable options that fit into their busy schedules," says Andy Judd, vice president of marketing at Boulder Brands, Gardein’s parent company. "As the very first multi-serve meals available in the frozen meatless category, our New Skillet Meals are outrageously delicious and can be prepared in minutes, making meal time a rewarding experience no matter how brief."
