Two Peas and Their Pod

Monterey Gourmet Foods & A $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Josh and I love to cook and usually make dinner together every night.

Life gets busy though, especially with a new baby, and there are some nights when we don’t have the time or energy to cook an elaborate meal.

It is too hard for us to go out to eat with little Caleb, so we need fast and easy options we can enjoy in the home for those busy, tired nights. We recently discovered Monterey Gourmet Foods, and we are in love. Monterey Gourmet Foods has a variety of pastas and sauces that are easy to make and delicious to eat.

Last week, Josh got home late from work and I wasn’t in the mood to cook, so we got out a package of Monterey Gourmet Foods Creamy Ricotta Florentine for dinner. The ravioli is a delicious blend of spinach, Parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta, and asiago cheeses. The ravioli is made with organic semolina flour and eggs from free-range chickens. The ravioli only takes 4-5 minutes to cook.

We served the ravioli with homemade marinara sauce we had in the freezer, but don’t worry, if you don’t make your own sauces. Monterey Gourmet Foods has a whole product line of pastas, sauces and pestos you can choose from. They are as delicious as if they were cooked from scratch in your kitchen.

We also added a simple salad and bread and had a gourmet meal in a matter of minutes.

Monterey Gourmet Foods Pastas and Sauces are all naturalñthe company follows 8 strict all natural principles so you can be assured you are offering the highest quality food for your family.

They have a full product line of pastas and sauces for those nights you just don’t have the time or energy to cook dinner.

Monterey Gourmet Foods pastas and sauces are also great for entertaining. You can make an impressive meal for your guests without all of the hard work. Your guests will think you made the pasta and sauces from scratch. Your secret is safe with us:)

    I would probably toss chicken in the Basil with Almond and Pine Nut Pesto, top it with sliced tomato and mozzarella then bake until the chicken is fully cooked and cheese is melted and browning.
