What's for Lunch - Mon., 11/13

A new item!

Chicken Parmigiana
Whole Wheat Rotini Marinara
Fresh Veggie Bar
Pineapple chunks

I emailed the food services dept last week for more details on the menu but they are apparently very busy.  So, there's some chicken. There is no doubt red sauce which pretty reliable seems to be a Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we previously used.  Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate).  The cheese is probably the USDA commodity part skim mozzarella.  Ingredients are cultured pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes. The sodium is 240mg/oz - I think we use 2 ounces. The noodles are whole wheat.

I don't have any details on what fresh vegetables will be available. I believe the pineapple is canned but I do not know if it has any additives. I know the food services dept. tries to avoid them but if they are a commodity you might get them anyway
