How to enjoy our Pasta for Two Meal Kit

Pasta for two meal kit an all natural dinner meal

When I first started Zelos, I wanted to bring truly authentic Greek flavors to the States and let Americans experience the kind of food I grew up with, not just the usual clichés of Greek cooking. Yet as I talked to friends and customers, I realized that there was also an opportunity to show the easier side of Greek cooking, to help people see that making a healthy and tasty meal didn't always have to mean slaving over a hot stove, like our mothers and grandmothers did.

I was also inspired by my own cooking experiments with our Artisans' versatile, all-natural products, so much of which I've written about in this blog. You realize that when a product is truly flavorful in and of itself, you don't need to do too much more with it to enjoy the fragrance and taste. In fact, high-quality products are usually by definition super-versatile and make your cooking so much easier. That's why I like to call many of our products time-savers & meal enhancers!

With all that in mind, last year we launched our Quick & Easy Meal Kits, combinations of our favorite products that let you prepare a tasty and healthy meal without having to spend too much time in the kitchen...and let's face it, with working from home, schooling from home, trying to juggle a million-and-one priorities, we just don't have a lot of time to dedicate to cooking.

Our Zelos Meal Kits are even better when you share them with other people, including kids who love cooking easy meals. The Kits come with a description of the products and a recipe to either follow or to inspire you (and they make great gifts, too!). Here are a few ideas for how to get the most out of our Pasta for Two Meal Kit (although you can even feed a family of four if you're not looking for leftovers!). We might call it a Pasta Meal Kit, but you'll see that you can make so much more with it - enjoy!

  • Agrozimi Egg & Milk Hilopites Traditional Greek Pasta is delicious even on its own, with just a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, especially if you're looking for a light meal. But read on below and watch the YouTube video for a couple of different ways to enjoy it!
  • Add some of Elli & Manos Tomato & Thyme Greek Flavor Burst to your pasta and bring the scent of the Greek countryside to your table. This is not a commercial tomato sauce - one twist of the jar and you'll know exactly what's in this concentrated condiment.
  • Quickly sauté shrimp or tofu with a tablespoon of Sparoza's Cooking Blend with Herbs and Lemon Zest, a handcrafted concentrated seasoning complemented with lemon verbena and homemade lemon zest, and top your noodles for a hearty, high-protein meal. Sprinkle the Cooking Blend to add a classic Greek touch to any dish, especially poultry and seafood, or jazz up your roasted veggies for a flavorful side dish.

 Your veggies will also love Elli & Manos' Greek Flavor Bursts. Our fans stew green beans in them or just pour some straight on to steamed veggies for a quick, flavorful side dish. These concentrated sauces also make a delicious base for pizzas and bruschetta appetizers.
