Top 3 Ideas for Fast Food

This summer, step away from the burgers and kebabs… Fast food can be a good thing, when it’s Italian of course. Take a look at this tasty trio of quick fixes…

Cut and DriedTop 3 Ideas for Fast Food

We’re great fans of dried spaghetti for a quick midweek supper, but if you’re cutting down on carbs, why not try Courgette Nests, for a lighter option? Made from fresh courgettes grown on the sunny plains of Puglia, the veg are cut and dried on the same day to preserve their natural goodness, colour and flavour. Cook for five minutes in boiling water for a low calorie alternative to spaghetti. Plus one nest equals one of your five a day – fast food and food for you!

Crunch tidy

Top 3 Ideas for Fast Food

For tasty snacking, these intensely Italian crispbreads are filled with delicious organic fl avours, from sundries tomatoes to basil plus lots of healthy seeds. The buckwheat has even been sprouted for an extra nutritional boost, so you can munch away with a guilt-free conscious. Suitable for vegans, and gluten-free, we think these crackers would go very nicely with shavings of pecorino  and a drizzle of balsamic or a slice or two of prosciutto crudo.

It’s in the bag
