- by Jordan Okumura
AUSTIN, TX - I have yet to meet someone who lacks some kind of affinity for pasta—even among those who are gluten free. Sure, the market now has several brands producing gluten-free pastas, but not all are equal. Cece’s Veggie Co. focuses on plant-based pastas that even gluten-eaters can enjoy. The company will be showcasing its award-winning Organic Butternut Shells & Cheese—a finalist for Best New Vegetable Product—at the United Fresh Expo this year.
Cece’s Organic gluten-free Butternut Shells & Cheese are made from 100 percent organic butternut squash, for a healthier take on the classic mac and cheese with traditional pasta. The elbow-style shells are ideal for cradling the organic cheese that accompanies them. With a full serving of veggie nutrition in each bowl, the Organic Butternut Shells & Cheese are a game-changer for families looking for healthy, kid-friendly organic meal solutions. The perfect combination of taste, nutrition, and convenience, the squash-based pasta dish is prepped and ready to heat-and-eat with no additional ingredients requires. Women’s Health Magazine has recognized Organic Butternut Shells & Cheese as a “Vegtastic Side that Hits the Spot” in the publication’s 2019 Food Awards.
The lucky attendees of the United Fresh Expo will be able to sample the Organic Butternut Shells & Cheese, and once they have tasted the deliciousness for themselves, they can then cast their votes for their favorite new and innovative product—obviously the Organic Butternut Shells & Cheese. According to a press release, attendees can cast their votes on Tuesday, June 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. United Fresh will announce the winners on the Main Stage on Wednesday, June 12 at 2 p.m.
