Like many of you, I enjoyed food from other cultures but don't have a lot of time to make meals from start to finish. So when Stop & Shop offered me a chance to try their new World Menu line of internationally-inspired meals, I quickly grabbed a plate and went shopping at the nearest store.
Note: I received a gift card to purchase Stop & Shop World Menu samples for review purpose. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
Stop & Shop’s World Menu line features more than 50 Italian and Asian favorites, all featuring quality ingredients and easy preparation and found primarily in the frozen section. Yay!
The World Menu Italian line feature the bold flavors of Italy with classic pastas, cheeses and herbs - all imported straight from Italy - the products feature additional fresh, peak quality ingredients like broccoli rabe, spicy red peppers and wild forest mushrooms.
Products include a variety of frozen pastas, eggplant parmiggiana, broccoli rabe risotto, spicy arrabbiata or forest mushrooms with wild porcini among others.
The World Menu Asia line features Asian-inspired frozen meals and condiments with tender seafood, chicken and pork paired with fresh vegetables and savory sauces for mouthwatering flavors.
Items include potstickers, egg rolls, Mandarin orange chicken, shrimp lo mein, General Tso chicken, sesame chicken with brown rice or chicken tikka masala in addition to other varieties.
While shopping I chose items from both the Italian and Asia line to enjoy as a meal. From the Asian line I picked the Udon Noddle Stir Fry and from the Italian line I chose Ricotta and Spinach Tortelli and Gnocchi Sorrentina.
For dinner I made the Italian Ricotta and Spinach Tortelli with Flavor Meat Sauce. Following the basic cooking instructions I boiled, strained and added sauce to the Spinach Tortelli. It only took a few minutes and then I was able to enjoy a full meal.
I was surprised to see that the World Menu Spinach Tortelli were quite large. Since I'm used to the mini size, I thought that each of these could easily becomes two. As for the taste, it was delicious and lightly flavored. I liked it since I could add my own seasons to adjust the taste as needed.
Overall I would recommend the Stop & Shop World Menu for when you want to enjoy a culture meal without all the preparations. I can see many ways to make it a main dish or use as an addin to a meal for your family.
Like all of Stop & Shop’s Own Brand products, World Menu items have been subject to a rigorous testing program, which includes customer feedback to ensure that the grocer is consistently delivering on quality and value.
