BENICIA, Calif. – Three Bridges is launching refrigerated lines of chef-crafted pastas, sauces and meals. Available at grocery stores and specialty retailers nationwide, this new line offers simple preparation, great taste and positive nutrition, the company stated.

"Each of the foods we've created incorporates fresh-cut vegetables, artisanal cheeses and natural meats, similar to what you expect to find at a local farmer's market," said Chef Craig Schauffel, vice president of research and culinary innovation. "We've truly elevated the farm-to-table movement with accessible meal solutions that allow people to express themselves daily through their culinary choices."

The new line features a variety of Chef-Crafted, Inspired Meals (SRP $7.99, 20-22oz.) including Chicken with Yellow Rice; Chicken Paella with Chorizo & Roasted Red Peppers; Chicken Enchilada Casserole; Sausage and Jalapeño Mac & Cheese; and Sausage & Basil Lasagna with Zucchini & Mozzarella Cheese.

Natural Pastas (SRP $ 3.99 – $4.99) include Chicken & Mozzarella Ravioli which contains all white chicken with rosemary, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses To complement its natural pastas, the company launched a full line of sauces (SRP $ 4.99) ranging from Superfood Pesto and Marinara to Basil Pesto and Alfredo.

"Eating should be an inspiring and delightful experience, never a chore, and this philosophy has guided us in the creation of Three Bridges' foods," said Diana Wang, vice president of marketing and product development. "Today, being time-pressed doesn't mean that you have to compromise on the quality of the food you eat, and our thoughtfully-crafted foods make good living deliciously easy so people can spend time on things that really matter."

Three Bridges, a "sister" brand of Pasta Prima, is now available at retail locations nationwide, including select Raley's and Target stores.
