A note about serious food allergies
Crunchy breadcrumbs meet soft pasta and mushrooms meet tangy sausage in this meal, a classic case of addition meaning addition. There's no subtraction or division here, except maybe a division of labor: this meal is easy and quick enough, one person can cook it and another person can quickly clean the two pans. The only algebra here? Trying to figure out why it took so long to get this meal on a menu.
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.
