Dinner time is about to get more delight-full thanks to Ronzoni® Garden DelightTM, the same great-tasting pasta families know and love, with a full serving of vegetables in every four-ounce portion. Ronzoni® Garden Delightis now available in select markets around the country, giving moms and dads a night off from the “eat your vegetables” battle cry. 

Ronzoni Garden Delight pasta is part of the New World Pasta family of brands, a leading dry pasta manufacturer in the United States and makers of the brands Ronzoni® Smart Taste® and Ronzoni® Healthy Harvest®.   Ronzoni® pasta has been a trusted partner at the family dinner table for nearly 100 years, and with the expanded availability of Ronzoni Garden Delight pasta, parents can make sure their families are full with the goodness of vegetables in every serving of pasta.
Ronzoni Garden Delight pasta is available in five family-favorite long cut and short cut shapes: Spaghetti, Fettucine, Rotini, Radiatore, and Penne Rigate. The semolina wheat-based pasta with added colorful and nutritious vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes and spinach, makes every bite as fun to eat as it is uncompromisingly delicious. Each 12-ounce box has a suggested retail price of $1.89. 
Ronzoni Garden Delight Spaghetti: From the Italian word for “strings,” these round thin strands can be used in entrées, side dishes, cold salads, or soups, and served with almost any pasta sauce. 
Ronzoni Garden Delight Fettuccine: “Little ribbons” in Italian, this robust pasta shape is best in entrées and side dishes, and paired with cream, olive oil, butter, or thicker tomato based sauces.  
Ronzoni Garden Delight Rotini: This corkscrew shaped pasta works well with any pasta sauce and in a variety of hot and cold dishes, including soups and salads
Ronzoni Garden Delight Radiatore: “Radiators” in Italian, these short chunky ruffled shapes are ideal in entrées, side dishes, oven bakes, and cold salads. The pasta’s ridges hold thinner pasta sauces well. 
Ronzoni Garden Delight Penne Rigate: From the Latin for “feathers” (reminiscent of old-fashioned quill pens), these are diagonally cut tubular shapes with ridged surfaces that are ideal for thin sauces. Penne Rigate is a great choice for entrées, side dishes, soups, oven bakes, and cold salads.
