PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Birds Eye, a market leader in frozen vegetables, has created a line of new Veggie Made Pastas that will make your busy weeknight and holiday dinners both delicious and nutritious. These new pastas are made from 100% vegetables and provide a healthy alternative to your family’s favorite starchy sides. Veggie Made Pasta does not contain wheat or flour, fillers or any artificial ingredients– just nutritious veggies in every bite!
Pasta is one of the largest and most popular foods in America, especially during the holidays, because of its great taste, convenience and versatility. However, despite the love for some of your favorite pasta dishes, you’re always looking for healthier alternatives that the whole family will enjoy. With Birds Eye Veggie Made Pasta, you get all the delicious taste and texture of traditional pasta in a guilt-free, nutritious way. That means you can enjoy a full serving of vegetables in every dish this season without sacrificing the delicious flavor families expect at dinner or a holiday meal.
To create these exceptional pastas, Birds Eye starts with vegetables like zucchini, spinach and lentils. Our vegetables are harvested at the peak of freshness, and then they are used to make pasta dough similarly to how regular pasta is made. We created an original (plain) variety that is perfect for including in one of your go-to holiday recipes, or you can easily enjoy one of our other varieties already prepared with popular sauces like Alfredo, cheddar or marinara.
“Birds Eye Veggie Made Pasta doesn’t just contain vegetable ingredients, and isn’t just plain vegetables cut into shapes of noodles. It looks and tastes just like regular pasta, and it’s made completely out of actual vegetables,” said Risa Cretella, Vice President Marketing for Birds Eye. “It’s a guilt-free way to enjoy the comforts of pasta with a full serving of vegetables, without having to boil water or clean pots, making it an easy choice to include in holiday recipes or any meal.”
Birds Eye Veggie Made Pasta is available in the frozen vegetable aisle at retailers nationwide in the following varieties:
- 100% Vegetable Pasta Plain Penne Pasta made with Zucchini & Lentils (Original)
- 100% Vegetable Pasta Rotini Marinara Pasta made with Zucchini & Lentils
- 100% Vegetable Pasta Penne with Cheddar Cheese Sauce Pasta made with Zucchini & Lentils
- 100% Vegetable Pasta Rotini Alfredo Pasta made with Spinach & Lentils
Getting families to eat more vegetables can be easier said than done, and we know how important your family’s nutrition is. At Birds Eye, we are dedicated to creating new ways to enjoy vegetables that are healthy, convenient and, of course, delicious so it’s easier for everyone to eat more vegetables, more often.
