Easy, summery no-prep meals
Friday, Apr. 30, 2021
Fun as it is, summer eating doesn’t always have to focus on the barbecue. Sometimes it’s all about bright, flavourful meals featuring the freshest of ingredients — no grill required. We’ve rounded up our tastiest ideas, which we bet will quickly become staples at your outdoor table.
With the right ingredients, pasta can definitely fit into the light, summery meal category — and there’s no rule that says you can’t use the oven in the summer. Or maybe you’re in the mood for a homestyle baked pasta dish — if someone else did all the prep work. That’s where we come in.
Creamy Chicken Pasta
Our Creamy Chicken Pasta is comfort food everyone at the table can agree on. We cook rotini pasta and toss it with cooked seasoned chicken breast, zucchini, red bell peppers, carrots and eggplant in a creamy, pleasing cheddar cheese sauce. Just add a turn from our Black Peppercorn Grinder or a sprinkle of chopped fresh basil at the table for a restaurant-style finish.
Stuffed Pasta Shells
Our Stuffed Pasta Shells feature tender large shells filled to the brim with an irresistible blend of four cheeses, chicken breast pieces and spinach, all smothered in a rustic tomato sauce. Topped with a generous shower of mozzarella and Romano cheeses, they’re fresh tasting yet soul satisfying.
Cheese and Spinach Cannelloni
For our Cheese and Spinach Cannelloni, we stuff delicate pasta tubes with spinach and ricotta, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and top them with tasty tomato sauce — all you have to do is heat and enjoy. Both of these signature pastas are ready after 1 hour in the oven.
For a beautiful, easy dinner, serve your chosen noodles with a mixed green salad. Add a glass of bubbly water brightened up with lemon and lime wedges alongside.
Simple solo meals
Lighting the ’cue to cook a meal for one can feel like a lot of work. But don’t fret — we’ve got you covered with delicious options that are ready in the microwave in just five (yes, five!) minutes. We par-cook and vacuum-seal our premium single-serves and finish them with a quick steam, so they always cook up to the perfect texture. They’re a delicious solution for summer days on the go.
Mediterranean Chicken and Chicken Burrito Bowl
First stop: Mediterranean Chicken, inspired by the flavours of chicken shawarma. It makes a delicious summer meal, thanks to tender grilled chicken breasts, which are bathed in a creamy garlic sauce. This all-in-one bowl comes with seasoned potato wedges and is served over a mix of rice and tender, perfectly ripe veggies.
Next stop: our Chicken Burrito Bowl. Another fan favourite, it showcases perfectly grilled chicken breasts with sides of salsa, rice and vegetables, all topped with sour cream and a tasty Tex-Mex cheese blend.
Korean Beef and General Tao Chicken
For nights when you’re craving take-in (get it?), Korean Beef — sliced beef and noodles in a savoury Korean barbecue sauce, with tender-crisp broccoli, carrots and sesame seeds — has your name all over it.
General Tao Chicken also fills the bill, with succulent breaded chicken breast in a mild-and-sweet General Tao sauce. Best part: This dish comes complete with rice and veggies, like bell peppers and snow peas, that have been picked and frozen at peak freshness.
Sensational skillet kits
Who doesn’t love a one-pot meal? Well, we certainly do, especially when there’s no chopping, measuring or prepping involved.
Sweet and Spicy Shrimp and Bay Scallop Kit
Our Sweet and Spicy Shrimp and Bay Scallop Kit comes together on the stovetop in less than 20 minutes. This signature recipe of white rice, sweet carrots, tender sugar snap peas, bell peppers, shrimp and bay scallops gets tossed in a sweet-and-spicy sauce and pairs wonderfully with a crisp white or rosé wine, or your favourite sparkling water.
Beef Lo Mein Kit
Speaking of easy, how about some tender lo mein noodles, savoury braised beef and tasty veggies mixed with a soy-ginger sauce? If that’s what you’re craving, try our Beef Lo Mein Kit — it’s a household staple for good reason! Serve it with an easy, refreshing coleslaw and some cold beverages to create a winning meal that’s best enjoyed alfresco.
Lemon Herb Chicken and Pasta Kit
Or maybe it’s the perfect night to put on a bow tie for dinner. Lemon Herb Chicken and Pasta Kit is our exclusive recipe of perfectly al dente bow-tie pasta, juicy seasoned chicken breast fillets, and tender-crisp veggies, like broccoli, carrots and bell peppers. They’re all tossed in a bright, savoury lemon-herb garlic sauce, and are ready on the stovetop in 20 minutes. We promise you’ll love them.
Garnishes can elevate your meals, making even simple weeknight dinners look and taste extra-special. Try a shower of chopped fresh herbs, chopped toasted nuts, freshly grated Parmesan or black pepper to add hits of flavour and colour.

Your website is just awful for shopping. It is very difficult to find what you are looking for and it seems to be getting worse. If, for example, I want to order 2 dozen assorted single serve bowls it will take up to 30 minutes to find them. Why can’t such things all come up as a single list. Having multiple ways to file things is fine, but don’t exclude the obvious!
