Family dinner parties are a chance to reconnect and really open up, catch up on what is happening, and just relax together…and I love to be the host of our family parties.
And when I’m serving a delicious feast that everyone loves, it’s the best of all.
I recently hosted a Tuscany inspired home-cooked dinner party with my favorite people, and created Luscious Rosa Lasagna with two a mixture of two pasta sauces- tomato and basil sauce + alfredo sauce- to create the Luscious Rosa sauce recipe. It’s really easy, cheesy, and beautiful (cream and rose colors look so luscious and appetizing).
Luscious Rosa Lasagna
1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 jar Bertolli Tomato & Basil Sauce
1/2 jar Bertolli Alfredo Sauce
8 uncooked lasagna noodles
1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Combine all cheeses in a large bowl and set aside.
2. Combine both sauces in a bowl and set aside.
3. In a small baking pan (11 by 7-inch), cover bottom with a layer of sauce mixture, then layer 3 uncooked lasagna, sauce mixture, and cheese mixture repeatedly until finished.
4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes at 375º F. Remove foil and let stand 10 minutes before serving. If using precooked lasagna noodles, cook 25 minutes covered and 5 minutes uncovered.
Family dinner parties are simply the best times.
There’s nothing quite like gathering around a home-cooked Italian meal, especially one rich with classic flavors. Steeped in Italian heritage, rosa sauce brings the heart of Tuscany directly to your table, making time spent with family and friends even more enjoyable. Luscious Rosa Lasagna is uniquely flavored and creamier than typical lasagna, perfect for my dinner party this week.
