New Pasta Introduction is Ideal Mealtime Solution for Busy Lifestyles
DALLAS, Aug. 28 // PRNewswire // -- It's no secret that Americans are busy, but the start of fall and the return to school always signal the arrival of an especially frenzied time of year. When juggling hectic schedules, putting together dinner often becomes a last-minute effort. The results of a new survey(1) confirmed the frenzy: 60 percent of the time, meal plans come together the same day a meal is served.
Earlier this year, Pizza Hut introduced Tuscani Pastas, a delicious, convenient and economic solution to the mealtime madness. Everything you need for a restaurant-quality pasta dinner can be delivered right to your door, making Tuscani Pastas perfect for days when plans come together at the last minute. This week, Pizza Hut is introducing a new Tuscani Pastas recipe: Premium Bacon Mac 'n Cheese, putting a delicious new twist on an all-time pasta favorite.
"Putting together a quality pasta meal traditionally requires time and effort," said Kelly Buckley, chief food innovation officer at Pizza Hut. "Tuscani Pastas were developed to meet the needs of time-crunched individuals looking for affordable, delicious meals. Same-day meal planning with the convenience of carry out or delivery is a whole lot easier with our three restaurant-quality pasta recipes."
Since their introduction in April, the two varieties of Tuscani Pastas -- Meaty Marinara and Creamy Chicken Alfredo -- have been an immediate success story, as hungry Americans have embraced the first delivery pasta offered by a national pizza chain. The newest variety, Premium Bacon Mac 'n Cheese, is a contemporary take on a pasta classic. Rotini pasta is smothered in a cheddar cheese sauce, topped with cheese and bacon, and oven-baked, giving the newest Tuscani Pastas flavor a taste that the whole family will love. No advance planning is needed. Just place an order to have more than three pounds of delicious, hot-out-of-the-oven pasta delivered right to your door, along with five freshly-baked breadsticks. Feeding a family of four for just $12.99, Tuscani Pastas are a great way for your quartet to enjoy dinner for just a few dollars each.
And no national pizza chain has more ordering options than Pizza Hut. You can simply pick up the phone or place an order via pizzahut.com, or, for folks on-the-go, Total Mobile Access from Pizza Hut gives you the ability to place your order via mobile Web or text message. You can also download a desktop application that allows you to order your favorites with just a few clicks of your mouse.
