A note about serious food allergies
We love Italian Wedding, or “married” soup so much, we decided to reinvent it as a pasta dish. We've kept the spirit, but changed some of the parts. Ditalini is traded in for ziti, and kale is upgraded to fresh Swiss chard. However, the best parts remain the same: the savory pork and rich Italian flavors, including cheesy, nutty Parmesan, making this “marriage” just as loving and successful as the soup variety.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
