Pasta pioneer Giovanni Rana captures the taste of real Italy in a ready meal

- Italy’s no.1 fresh pasta brand launches new Fresh Filled Pasta Creations range -

Italy’s number one fresh pasta brand has recently launched a new range of delicious ready meals, perfect for time-starved foodies. On Sainsbury’s shelves from mid-March, Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations  include three varieties that look good, taste great and are ready in minutes.

The new filled pasta range comprises:
Tortellini filled with Prosciutto Crudo in tomato sauce (with cherry tomatoes, spinach and Parmigiano Reggiano shavings)
Tortellini filled with Spinach and Ricotta in a basil sauce (with courgettes and cheese shavings)
Tortellini filled with Prosciutto Crudo in Alfredo sauce (with peas, smoked ham and Parmigiano Reggiano shavings)

Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations range is easy to prepare - simply place in the microwave and it’s ready in four minutes – and thanks to Giovanni Rana’s commitment to creating authentic tasting meals, the pasta actually cooks (rather than being reheated) during the microwave process, ensuring it arrives on your plate ‘al dente’. The meals are perfect as a hot, hearty lunch for one or as a tasty, quick and convenient supper.

The new Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations range complement the brand’s existing selection of fresh, authentically Italian filled pastas which include favourites like Rich Italian Beef Bolognese Tortelloni (traditional small, plump filled pasta), and Prosciutto Crudo and Cheese Cappelletti (small, hat-shaped pasta envelopes stuffed with filling). Its trademark extra thin pasta and generous, flavoursome fillings have made the Giovanni Rana name a national treasure in its native Italy and a synonym for authentic food and good taste.

Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations range signifies the first of a few new exciting products that are being launched by the brand later this year.

A Giovanni Rana spokesperson comments: “Giovanni Rana is renowned for pioneering the way we enjoy fresh pasta, and this exciting new range of delicious and convenient ready meals is no exception. Different from the usual lasagnes and pasta bakes that dominate the pasta ready meal category, these plump and flavoursome ready meal tortellinis with freshly prepared sauces offer something exciting and different. We’re hopeful that Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations will go down a treat, especially with time-starved foodies who want to eat deliciously authentic Italian food quickly and conveniently, without compromising on taste.”

Giovanni Rana’s Fresh Filled Pasta Creations are available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide from March 2011, and selected ASDA stores from May 2011.  For more information on the Giovanni Rana range, as well as recipes ideas, visit
