Bellisio Foods Incorporated (formerly Michelina's) is a major diversified American frozen food manufacturer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As the third largest producer of frozen entrees in the United States, Bellisio has an average daily production capacity of over two million meals (source: Wikipedia).

Some of Bellisio’s brands include: Michelina’s, Michelina’s Lean Gourmet, Michelina’s Budget Gourmet, Fusion Culinary, Arden Kitchens, Charrito’s and Howlin’ Coyote (source: Wikipedia).

Bellisio's brand Michelina's Budget Gourmet has offered a savory type of Fettuccine Alfredo that gained consumer appeal with its simplicity and classic approach to spiced alfredo sauce. While its Swedish Meatballs with Noodles offering was rated to be equally simple and satisfying, the Fettuccine Alfredo brand was rated to be very elegant.

This food offering reflected a consumer trend in entree marketing that was parallel to the fast food success of Boston Market, consumer trends that symbolically reflect the ornamental marketability of festivity-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Mystic Pizza" (1988).

Are the printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!

HISTORY OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR IN 1908 OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”, NOW SERVED BY THE GRANDCHILDREN, ALFREDO E ISA DI LELIO, AT THE RESTAURANT “IL VERO ALFREDO” IN ROME, PIAZZA AUGUSTO IMPERATORE 30

With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in a street in central Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina. In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”.
In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 "Il Vero Alfredo" (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery””(fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” http://www.alfredo-roma.it/ .
We must clarify that other restaurants "Alfredo" in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of "Il Vero Alfredo" in Rome.
We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
