BIRMINGHAM, AL (June 16, 2021) - If you're stressing over cooking a special dinner for Father's Day, stress no more! Meal inspiration leader eMeals and America's largest producer of pasta Barilla have teamed up to create a Father's Day Cook Out menu for eight that's a giant step up from everyday fare (Pesto Marinated Chicken Breasts, anyone?) but requires less than an hour of cooking time on the big day. That means you can spend less time in the kitchen and more hanging out with Dad and the rest of the family.
Just for Dad: As the menu's centerpiece, Pesto Marinated Chicken Breasts are infused with a marinade featuring Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto Sauce, topped with melted mozzarella and a tomato and basil mixture, and served with grilled potato wedges. Side dishes include Pasta-Cherry Tomato Salad featuring Barilla Gemelli pasta with pesto, prosciutto, corn on the cob and arugula, a no-cook Broccoli-and-Red Cabbage Slaw, and Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches with ice cream in the middle. It all adds up to a largely make-ahead Dad's Day spread with the special touches he deserves - including a Spiked Arnold Palmer drink of iced tea, lemonade and whiskey perfect for a hot summer day.
Self-shop or online grocery: Simply select the dishes you want to make from the eMeals mobile app, and eMeals will create a shopping list that you can use in-store at your local grocery (just look it up on your phone) or tap for pickup or delivery from Walmart, AmazonFresh, Kroger, Albertsons, Safeway, H.E.B., or the retailers served by Instacart and Shipt. It's the fastest and easiest way to shop for your Father's Day fixings.

About the Barilla Group
Barilla is a family company, not listed on the stock exchange, chaired by brothers Guido, Luca and Paolo Barilla. It was founded by their great-grandfather, Pietro Barilla, who opened a bakery in Parma in 1877. Now, Barilla is famous in Italy and throughout the world for the excellence of its food products. With its brands - Barilla, Vero Gusto, Mulino Bianco, Pan di Stelle, Gran Cereale, Harrys, Pavesi, Wasa, Filiz, Yemina and Vesta, Misko, Voiello and Cucina Barilla - it promotes a tasty, joyful and healthy diet, inspired by the Mediterranean Diet and the Italian lifestyle. When Pietro opened his store more than 140 years ago, his overriding aim was to make good food. Today, that principle has become Barilla's way of doing business: "Good for You, Good for the Planet," a slogan that expresses the daily commitment of the over 8,000 people who work for the company, and of a supply chain that shares its values and passion for quality. "Good for You" means constantly improving the product offering, encouraging the adoption of healthy lifestyles and facilitating people's access to food. "Good for the Planet" means promoting sustainable supply chains and reducing CO2 emissions and water consumption.
