PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

•    Cheese Stuffed Olive Collection – Adding to its existing line of stuffed olives, Mezzetta is debuting three new stuffed cheese flavors: European Smoked Gouda Style, Vermont Sharp White Cheddar Style, and California Habanero Jack Style, which join the existing favorites – Bleu Cheese and Greek Feta-stuffed. All are hand-stuffed, extra-large Greek Halkidiki olives that are ideal for cocktails or an antipasto platter, sliced in salads or just served for plain snacking.

•    Castelvetrano Olives – First appearing a few years ago at gourmet grocery olive bars and on trendy restaurant menus, now the hot Sicilian import is available for the first time at supermarkets nationwide in glass jars from Mezzetta. Long a favorite in Italy, the Castelvetranos are imported by Mezzetta from a small town of the same name in Sicily. These memorable yet hard-to-find olives have a distinct bright green hue with a meaty, buttery flesh. Nutritionally, the Castelvetrano olives have just 20 calories with 2 grams of fat and zero carbohydrates per serving.

•    Italian Garden Vegetables – “Giardiniera” is the Italian word for garden and this classic Italian antipasti is made of an assortment of vegetables harvested at the height of the season. This colorful blend features carrots, cauliflower, zucchini, squash, onions and red bell peppers, all sourced locally. Marinated in a white balsamic vinegar, Mezzetta’s Italian Garden Vegetables are crafted to best complement the hearty flavors of cured and smoked meats.

•    Amatriciana Pasta Sauce – The newest marinara sauce from Mezzetta, the Amatriciana is named after the small town of Amatrice, Italy and based on a traditional recipe, which features cured pork “pancetta”, and sautéed red onions. This all-natural sauce is hearty, savory and rustic with a touch of heat. Like the other marinara sauces in Mezzetta’s Napa Valley Bistro line, the Amatriciana is made with a splash of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to add flavor and richness.

Slow cooked in small batches, only vine-ripened plum tomatoes, slow-cured pancetta, local garlic, sautéed red onions, chili flakes, imported Italian olive oil and natural sea salt are used.
