These new recipes feature a variety of flavors and ingredients, including meals like Easy Chicken Parmesan, Chorizo Bolognese, Quick Tomato Risotto and more. Each recipe was carefully crafted to bring rich flavors to the dinner table with the help of two classics families love – Hunt's Tomatoes and Kraft Parmesan Cheese.By trying these new recipes, fans can enter the Try, Share, Win! Sweepstakes for their chance to win one of thousands of prizes. First they choose a Hunt's and Kraft Signature Recipe to try and upon their selection, they will receive a valuable digital coupon for one dollar off the purchase of any Kraft Parmesan Cheese and three cans of Hunt's Tomatoes. After trying the recipe, fans are urged to tell their friends about the new Signature Recipes and sweepstakes by sharing on Pinterest, Facebook or email for their chance to win a vegetable steamer or be entered to win the grand prize. As part of the progressive sweepstakes, the more fans that try and share recipes, the more vegetable steamers Hunt's will give away. Quality starts early with Hunt's, beginning with every Hunt's tomato grown in sunny California, picked at the peak of freshness. Hunt's FlashSteam® process uses hot water to peel all diced, whole, stewed, and crushed tomatoes—while other leading brands often use harsh chemicals. All of Hunt's diced, whole, stewed and crushed tomatoes are 100% natural and have no artificial preservatives. "We are committed to providing our best tomatoes, which is why FlashSteam is so critical to Hunt's," said Tim Nangle, Brand Director for Hunt's at ConAgra Foods. "We hope the sweepstakes will give our existing fans a chance to share their favorite recipes, while giving our new fans the opportunity to try some of our Signature Recipes for themselves."
