Hallowe’een candy is on clearance, and the Christmas decorations are already filling the shelves: it’s beginning to look a lot like early November.
It’s the season of packed schedules and mile long to-do lists: and soon, your nights and weekends will be filled with shopping trips, hall decking, and visits with friends and family. Finding quality time to make a home cooked meal and sit down with the family, let alone prepare a dish for an upcoming holiday party, can feel downright impossible.
But wait! There’s no need to hit the drive thru for family dinner, or to grab one of those frozen appetizer platters to take to your office potluck. Luckily, with three retail locations in Guelph, Woodstock and Cambridge, National Pasta has all kinds of affordable and delicious options to keep your holiday season celebratory and sane, too. With a wide variety of products, we have everything you’re looking for.
The comfort of a homemade meal during a hectic season can’t be underestimated. We have all your traditional favorites fresh frozen and ready to go. Grab one on your way home from work, and get a healthy meal in a matter of minutes – you can even use the time to get in a little gift wrapping. Here are a few favorites we always have on hand:
• Lasagna (choose from vegetable, vegetable alfredo, chicken, or meat)
• Cannelloni (choose from cheese, spinach or meat)
• Spicy Sausage and Penne Farfelle
• Fresh Linguini, Fettuccini and Spaghetti
• 8 different sauces
• Meat Balls and Rice Balls
• Chicken or Veal Parmigiana
• Chicken Cacciatore
• Pizza and Panazerotti (all kinds!)
Between gluten-free, nut free, dairy free (and the increase of more food sensitivities and allergies each year), cooking for guests during the holiday season can be stressful. No matter what you’re looking for, you can be confident in the safety of our products. We work primarily with Canadian distributors and suppliers, and are committed to creating food that is free of harmful chemicals or additives. Our new lines of Fit (high protein) Pasta and our Healthy Grains Pastas are a great addition to help balance out all that overindulging, too.
This season, we’re proud to offer a NEW! feature flavour: our festive turkey ravioli with cranberries and stuffing. Our pumpkin ravioli or gnocchi (made with a brown butter sage sauce) is also a staff favourite. No need to special order: they’re always available for pick up at any of our locations.
Looking for something a little more custom that will leave a great impression on some special guests? Let us handle it for you! Did you know we’re the secret sauce in a number of grocery stores and restaurants across the country? The curious and talented culinary team at our Cambridge-based manufacturing facility is always devising new combinations and specialty recipes based on the feedback and requests from our customers. If you’ve got a specific idea or ingredient in mind, or have picky eaters in your midst, call us. We’ll be happy to find the perfect fit for you and your family this season.
No matter what your preference, we’ve got something for everyone. We look forward to seeing you and serving your family soon. Happy Holidays!
