Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
With students heading back to school and fall activities gearing up, Italian Foods Corporation is making it easy to have a quick weeknight dinner on the table by offering free shipping on its new gourmet pasta and sauce dinner kits.
Through September, Italian Foods is offering the free shipping on a variety of dinner kits that include selections of up to three La Piana© artisan pastas and pasta sauces or a gnocchi paired with La Piana Basil Pesto, said Francesca Lapiana-Krause, sales director. All of the pasta sauces and pastas are produced by artisanal companies in Italy and imported for sale in the U.S. market. Shoppers may select either UPS Ground or UPS Home Delivery as the shipping method and enter the coupon code Qx6WU5YHJ for free shipping.
La Piana pasta sauces include the USDA Organic vegetarian spaghetti Bolognese, which gets its authentic meaty texture from soy crumbles, said Lapiana-Krause. Other sauces include Tomato & Basil with a traditional recipe from the Liguria region, Tomato & Olive originating from the Naples region, and Tomato & Vegetable filled with the flavors of Tuscany, she said. “All of the artisan egg pastas are bronze die cut and slowly air dried at just above room temperature to give them great flavor and texture. Plus, the tiny striations from the dies help the sauces cling to the pasta,” Lapiana-Krause said. “The egg pastas are delicious, but our stuffed pastas are something a bit unusual.”
Many stores carry refrigerated and frozen tortellini and ravioli, but La Piana stuffed pastas, including dried tortellini and mezzaluna pasta, can be stored in the pantry and ready to get an easy and quick weeknight dinner on the table. “This isn’t just an ordinary pasta night,” she said. “With our dinner kits, you have a genuinely gourmet pasta meal.” The stuffed pastas expand when they cook so a 1-pound box will feed a crowd. Flavors include Tortellini with Sundried Tomato and Oregano, Mezzaluna with Pesto, Mezzaluna with Gorgonzola, Ravioli with Squash, Ravioli with Pecorino & Potato, and Tortellini with Cheese.
The pasta kits range in price from $8 for the gnocchi and pasta sauce dinner kit up to $32 for a kit with three pastas and three sauces. The dinner kits and other Italian Foods Corporation products are available online at ItalianFoods.com or by calling 1-888-516-7262.
