If you know anything about me, you may know I have a “thing” for quirky Holidays. I mean, National Talk Like a Pirate Day is one of our favorites. Another Holiday, coming July 29th, is National Lasagna Day. Think about it. You have a REASON to eat as much yummy lasagna than EVER before. How cool is that?
So, why don’t you jump on the bandwagon with me and think about making a lasagna for the whole family. I know. I know. Summer time is crazy hot and why would you want to spend four hours in the hot kitchen, heating up the WHOLE entire house? Yeah. I don’t blame you. Good thing you don’t have to. Back in January I discovered and new brand of frozen Italian meals that use quality ingredients. Michael Angelo’s, who’s factory is located in Austin, TX, is gaining in popularity in my Southern town, so much so that Walmart is carrying a whole new line of Michael Angelo’s meals to help you get dinner on the table fast.
Each of Michael Angelo’s delicious appetizers, entrées and sauces is handcrafted from Sara’s authentic Italian recipes, using only the natural, wholesome ingredients found in a genuine Italian kitchen. In order to ensure that you provide your family with a delicious and nutritious meal, we use only 100% premium meats, authentic Italian cheeses, 100% durum wheat semolina pasta, fresh herbs and spices, fresh vegetables, and specially selected, vine-ripened tomatoes.
NEW Michael Angelo’s Family Meals:
Meat Lasagna: Any Italian will tell you that the key to a real lasagna is the fresh, creamy ricotta within. Unlike other frozen food companies that use cottage cheese, Michael Angelo’s stays true to their naturally Italian roots by using premium ricotta made the old-fashioned way. Layered with al dente pasta and a rich meat sauce, the smooth ricotta is the secret ingredient to our delicious Meat Lasagna.
Eggplant Parmesan: Our specially-grown variety of farm-fresh eggplant is thinly sliced and lightly
breaded, creating a crispy crust that pairs well with the layers of premium melted mozzarella and our traditional aromatic tomato sauce. Topped with imported Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino Romano cheeses, our Eggplant Parmesan will satisfy your hunger and warm your heart.
Chicken Piccata: We start with tender, perfectly seasoned whole-breast chicken pieces. A luscious lemon-butter sauce, made with roasted red bell peppers, fresh garlic and squeezed lemon juice adds depth and zest. Hearty artichoke hearts, fresh diced tomatoes and savory capers round out the flavors of our Chicken Piccata. Pair it with pasta, rice or steamed vegetables for an elegant meal straight from the freezer.
Vegetable Lasagna: Not one, not two, not three, but SEVEN nutritious and colorful vegetables can be found nestled in the layers of our Vegetable Lasagna, including broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, squash and spinach. With fresh al dente pasta, creamy ricotta, flavorful marinara and melty mozzarella, this veggie entrée is nothing short of satisfying.
Shrimp Scampi: Succulent and tender shrimp in a frozen meal may be hard to find, but it’s not impossible as proven by Michael Angelo’s Shrimp Scampi. Fresh, plump shrimp are sautéed in a delectable lemon-butter sauce made with butter, garlic and real lemon juice. Tossed with fresh linguini pasta and fresh diced tomatoes,
this Shrimp Scampi will make you sigh with delight.
Italian-Style Sausage and Meatballs: Made with premium meats and a touch of spice, our fork-tender Italian-Style Sausage and Meatballs is an Italian staple that’s been kicked up a notch. This dish does not include pasta, allowing you to customize your meal and pair with pasta, rice or vegetables for a scrumptious Italian meal all your own.
Available in approximately 2,890 Walmart stores nationwide.
An Inside Look Into Michael Angelo’s:
I LOVE LOVE learning about my favorite brands and how they make their products. That’s why I thought I’d let YOU guys in on Michael Angelo’s and their appearance on Food Network’s Unwrapped.
Michael Angelo’s meals are sold at thousands of supermarkets and warehouse clubs. I found mine at my local H-E-B Grocery Store, but the new meal selections can be found at Walmart.
