Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods – makers of authentic and all-natural Italian prepared and frozen meals – today announced the launch of five new large sizes of 100 percent natural meals at Walmart. With new sizes of brand favorites including Meat Lasagna available in 46 ounces and 80 ounces, Baked Ziti with Meatballs in 44 ounces and Eggplant Parmesan in 44 and 80 ounces, customers can let Michael Angelo’s take care of the cooking for a party of any size.

“Classic meals like our Meat Lasagna and Eggplant Parmesan have been some of our most loved products, and we’ve heard from consumers a resounding desire to serve their friends and family the natural, real taste they know they can only get from us,” said founder and CEO Michael Angelo Renna, who started the company over 30 years ago from his mother’s pizzeria in San Diego. “When you need a satisfying, wholesome meal, there’s nothing like gathering friends and family around a home-style Italian dish – that notion of bringing loved ones together around the table for a delicious meal is what the Michael Angelo’s family is all about. Our larger sizes really bring our love of feeding people home.”

Just like every Michael Angelo’s meal, each of the new all-natural sizes are comprised of 100 percent natural ingredients, without any additives or fillers. Michael Angelo’s authentic, homemade tastes comes naturally with vine-ripened tomatoes, imported Italian cheeses, and fresh vegetables and herbs sourced from some of the best farms in the world. Unlike many other brands in the freezer aisle, every Michael Angelo’s ingredient is selected with care by Michael and his mom, Sara, ensuring authentic taste from the seed in the ground to the meal in your freezer. Where other frozen meal makers may skimp on imported ingredients and cut corners on sourcing to save on production costs, Michael Angelo’s gourmet, homemade style makes every bite a wholesome and nutritious experience.

“It's not how other companies do it, but that's how we've always done it, and it's the reason we’ve never needed to defend the nutritional reputation of our products,” said Michael Angelo Renna.

“My Sicilian roots taught me that simple ingredients are all you need to make a great meal,” said Sara, the mom behind Michael Angelo’s and the cook behind many of the company’s best-selling meals. “Our whole family is dedicated to providing other families the same highest-quality ingredients and meals that we serve in our own kitchens at home, while also offering the convenience of a prepared meal after a long day. As a single mother of five boys, I know the importance of a convenient, yet satisfying meal!”

The Meat Lasagna, now available in 46 or 80 ounces, is a Michael Angelo’s best-seller made with Pecorino Romano cheese, imported fromItaly. Fresh beef, vine-ripened tomatoes and a secret blend of herbs are sautéed in imported olive oil and layered with al dente, 100 percent semolina lasagna noodles and premium cheeses to make the best pre-made lasagna dish available. The family-treasured Eggplant Parmesan, in 44 or 80 ounces, is made simply with fresh, lightly-breaded eggplant and just the right amount of tomato sauce, topped with Mozzarella and sprinkled with a blend of imported Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Romano cheeses. Michael Angelo’s Baked Ziti with Meatballs is made carefully with 100 percent semolina ziti pasta and Sara’s beef meatballs, made with only ingredients found in any every day kitchen. Combined with vine-ripened tomato sauce, Mozzarella cheese and sprinkled with Romano cheese, this Italian classic is a crowd-pleasing combination.

My Take on the Meals
As a busy family at times it is hard to find time to make big family meals even when you want to. This is especially true when you have multiple events with multiple kids and having your family being pulled in many times multiple directions. Recently I found out that Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods just expanded their line of products to have larger family dishes. One of the things that I loved about this is that I already know that ,individual portion dishes, so these larger dishes were perfect for a family.

I came to find in making the dishes that they were very easy to make – just place them in the oven and you have your dinner in only a short amount of time. In the end you get a meal that has wonderful flavor and that for a family of four was the perfect amount of food, and we actually had some left over!

If you are looking for a great quick meal for an entire family I highly encourage you to try this out!
