Bol pasta pot

Sicilian Caponata Pasta will land in Sainsbury’s from 31 October

Premium pot meals brand Bol Foods has expanded its lineup with four variants including its first pasta dish.

Sicilian Caponata Pasta  (rsp: £3) will land in Sainsbury’s from 31 October and in Tesco from 8 November. Bol said it had “spent months creating this delicious plant-based recipe” based on a “Sicilian classic”. It is a combination of roasted courgette, cannellini beans, roast baby plum tomatoes and toasted sunflower seeds, with a dressing of tomato, basil & garlic sauce, capers and sweet lemon oil.

It is being preceded in the mults by two other new lines: Slow Roasted Tomato & Basil Protein Boosting Super Soup, and Carrot, Butternut & Ginger Immune Boosting Super Soup (rsp: £2.75) are rolling out today to Tesco and Sainsbury’s respectively.

The chilled quartet of plant-based NPD will be completed from 8 November, when Thai Red Curry (rsp: £3) becomes available in Tesco.

The “globally inspired” products follow Bol’s move in the summer to take its portfolio vegan, removing dairy from all its pot meals a year after it dropped meat and fish in June 2017 and relaunched as a vegetarian brand.
