Looking for something quick, easy and delicious to feed the family? Three Bridges offers some tasty options in refrigerated pasta and pasta sauce products.
Three Bridges refrigerated pasta and sauce products are low in fat and contain real ingredients like milk, cheese, panko, salt, onion powder and spinach.
Tasty pasta for the whole family
Kids and grown-ups alike enjoyed the spinach and cheese tortellini, even the preteen who claims to dislike spinach. She knew what was in it, tried it anyway and liked it.
The Three Bridges five-cheese ravioli was a huge hit, especially with the kids, who couldn’t get enough of it. The ravioli tastes like homemade and contains real cheeses – mozzarella, ricotta, Romano, Parmesan and Asiago.
Most of the family also enjoyed the chicken and prosciutto ravioli, which had more spice to it than the other pastas. One child refused to try it based on the name, but the other kid wolfed down her serving and said she loved it.
Follow cooking instructions
Be sure to follow the cooking instructions exactly and immediately remove all of the ravioli from the pot after the boiling time is up. Otherwise, the pasta can lose some of its delightfully chewy texture.
Parents may want to buy multiple packages of Three Bridges pasta, particularly the cheese ravioli, to avoid squabbling with their offspring for the last few bites.
Variety of sauces
The Three Bridges refrigerated Heirloom Marinara sauce goes great with the Three Bridges pasta options. It also tastes a lot like homemade, and it’s just the type of sauce the kids love. It’s not at all spicy so the rich tomato taste thrives, and it’s a little on the sweet side.
The Three Bridges refrigerated basil pesto sauce tasted fantastic in a baked Italian chicken recipe. It smells fresh and has a wonderful basil aroma.
Variety of options, including organic and gluten free
In addition to the products reviewed here, Three Bridges offers creamy red bell pepper, Alfredo and porcini mushroom Parmesan Alfredo sauces. Other pasta options from Three Bridges include bolognese pasta shells with smoked mozzarella, sausage and basil lasagna with zucchini and mozzarella cheese, chicken paella, spinach and cheese ravioli, butternut squash ravioli, Parmesan gnocchi, chicken and mozzarella ravioli, Italian sausage ravioli and lobster ravioli.
Plus, Three Bridges offers a number of organic choices, including organic cheese tortellini, spaghetti and fettuccine. They even have gluten free pasta in five-cheese ravioli and butternut squash ravioli varieties. The company also sells some non-pasta options, such as chicken and yellow rice and chicken enchilada casserole.
Three Bridges creates their food products with thoughts toward protecting the environment. They use soy inks on their labels and paper-based packaging and make their paper trays from a renewable plant source.
In addition, the company generates over a third of their annual electricity needs from their own solar panels, preventing the release of 1.1 million pounds of carbon dioxide in its first year alone. That’s like removing 94 cars from the road. They offset the rest of their electrical use with certified renewable energy.
