OMAHA — ConAgra Foods is introducing Marie Callender’s Home-Style Creations, which are microwavable meals that may be found in the pasta or soup aisle and require no refrigeration or freezing.
"Our research tells us people crave home-cooked meals when they are working or away from home," said Laura Flanagan, vice-president and general manager for ConAgra. "With new Marie Callender’s Home-Style Creations, consumers can treat themselves with an authentic, home-style meal that’s ready in minutes straight from their desks. The meals offer a delicious, everyday lunchtime option for busy, working professionals craving that special touch of home during the day."
The products are available in six varieties — classic stroganoff, creamy parmesan chicken, garlic herb chicken, meatball lasagna, sweet sesame beef, and traditional stuffing and turkey — for a suggested retail price of $3.49 each.
The products also use the same patented tray-in-tray steaming technology as Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers.
