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. You can visit VivaBertolli.com to find the original Luscious Rosa Lasagna recipe with some great additional tips. It’s really easy, cheesy, and beautiful (cream and rose colored, truly luscious tasting).
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.
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, the heart of Tuscany is welcome at our table, making time spent with family and friends even more enjoyable. Want to throw your own Italian dinner party?
