Barilla Microwavable Meals R&G

I feel like days go by so quickly most days. One thing is 7am and we’re reluctantly starting our day and the next it’s 12pm and wondering what the heck we’re going to make for lunch. Being in the 1st trimester isn’t helping the lunch process at all. I’m not in the mood to cook at all. I used to make Mason homemade Bacon and Ranch Mac & Cheese with Broccoli and now the though of bacon cooking (which I love) makes me a little sick to my stomach.

So lately my go to lunch has been PB&J sandwiches, apples with cheese and other easy items that involve little to no cooking. I was thrilled when I got the chance to try out the new Barilla Microwavable Pasta bowls finally I was going to be able to switch it up a little!

There are 5 different flavors available

B, Mason and I all had a little for lunch the other day B had the spicy marinara and I had the classic marinara. Mason had some of mine. I love how easy it was to make.

You just peel back the wrapper to the line

and pop into the microwave for 60 seconds

When it’s done you just remove the sauce tray, pour it over the pasta and enjoy!

We all enjoyed it, especially Mason, he loves pasta!

What’s interesting about these is that they don’t have to be kept in the fridge, just in your cabinet or if you’re working at work in your drawer! They also have

  • 100% Natural Ingredients
  • No Preservatives
  • 320 Calories per meal
  • Two Whole Grain Options

    I’m always skipping lunch at work because I don’t want to go out and get something to eat — -these look like a great alternative.

  2. Sarah S says

    I almost never have time to make lunch. These would be great to grab on my way out the door in the morning.

  3. Alexandria Professional Bagpiper says

    I am totally visually impaired, so it is very hard for me to cook on my own. Microwave meals help me be independent.

  4. LOIS PAYTON says

    I live by myself now that my sweet Donald is with the good LORD, so I don’t cook much, so these would be great, GOD BLESS AND KEEP YA’LL SAFE IN HIS LOVING ARMS.

  5. DeeAnn S says

    Because sometimes I forget to stop to eat. This is something I can whip up quickly, without having to stand over a hot stove, and still feel satisfied. Thanks.

  6. carol gentry says

    My life is so busy that I don’t have time to cook like I would love to so this would be the next best thing.

  7. Carol W says

    The fall sports have begun. I never know exactly when everyone will be home for dinner and could use these to fill on some nights. thanks

  8. says

    My work is never predictable…so if I try to sit down for a great meal, it just might not work out because an emergency may come up. I need things that are quick and easy and ready whenever I am to eat.

  9. Erica C. says

    We often aren’t home to have meals together, so this would be a great way for us to eat something quickly when we are apart.

  10. Lucy Schwartz says

    In our frantic society , who doesn’t? Time and productivity are at a premium at times and we all need something to use in a pinch.

  11. Mary Cloud says

    Because during the day I’m so busy that I don’t have a lot of time to cook a meal for myself

    Sometimes I have to eat at work and the Barilla microwavable meals would be perfect. I do not always have enough time to pack something to take for lunch or dinner.

  14. Molly K says

    I work in customer service and sometimes I can run late on a call and into my lunch break and we still have to be back at our regular time so I need some quick, easy, good lunches to keep on hand in my locker for those days.

  15. Laura Ward says

    I work 12 hour shifts and sometimes cannot leave the nurse’s station. It would be nice to have something hot but fast to eat in a sneaky way.

  16. Jen says

    We need easy on the go meals when the Hubs works both part time jobs in the same day. These kind of quick heat up things are perfect for those lonnnnng days.

  17. Chrissy Nestor says

    My daughter is alway’s hungry after school and these would be great for her to have as a inbetween before dinner.

  18. Jennifer Peaslee says

    My husband only gets a 30 minute lunch, so quick is a must! As it gets chillier out a warm quick lunch is so much nicer than a cold sandwich! 🙂

  19. Gaines Simmons says

    Hello, how are you? Thank you for this opportunity. I woud limke to win the Barilla micro-wavable meals because I am working a double-shift and need a convenient timely meal.

  20. Sandra K321 says

    Actually, my son needs them. He’s in college and his dorm doesn’t serve lunch (only breakfast and dinner) so if he’s in his dorm room around lunchtime, he could use these for a quick and easy lunch.
