With the arrival of guests – expected and unexpected – at Christmas, and kids home from uni or overseas who always seem to be on the prowl for food, suddenly there’s no time for relaxation, because you’re too busy fretting about what to conjure up for the next meal.
Pasta Vera at Unit 1, 2 Musgrove Place removes all that anxiety. Pop into the factory shop to stock up your fridge and freezer with fresh pasta, homestyle lasagne, and mouth-watering calzone and gnocchi. For barbecues their selection of pesto, sauces and hummus are delicious accompaniments.
So now you’ve got the long-term sorted, what are you going to do about the scary immediate and the fact your unpredictable teenagers have invited all their friends over for tea tonight? Not a problem, grab a tray of Baked Lasagne, a tray of Macaroni Cheese, and just to be on the safe side, add in some Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni (available in 10 x 140g servings) and those kids are fed. And because you’ll only have enough energy left to open a bottle of wine, the re-heat and serve Chili Con Carne has your name on it.
For those with special dietary requirements there is a delectable range of gluten free lasagne and gnocchi; and for vegetarians, the vegan lasagne is scrumptious. With ample parking outside the factory shop, the holiday season is starting to look pretty good!
