Into The Heart of Italy: The Secret of the Butteri Giveaway

A few weeks ago I participated in a Taste and Tweet with Bertolli and was given a chance to try out some of their frozen meals.  They are pretty awesome!

I have been given the chance to review some of the Bertolli products on my blog and was sent some coupons to try some of the frozen meals for myself. I am a big fan of always keeping some sort of frozen meal option in my freezer for lazy evenings when I don’t feel like cooking up a storm!

The Bertolli  product line offers Classic and Mediterranean Style frozen meals alone with Oven Bake options. I decided to try out the Oven Bake Chicken Parm & Penne choice! Yum! oats 011

All I had to do was to toss the contents of the bag into a Dutch oven and pop it into the oven! It was as easy as that! oats 014 

About 35-40 minutes in the oven and the chicken parm was ready to be eaten! It looked great and smelled so yummy!oats 016

While it was baking in the oven I made some asparagus with peppers and onions as my side dish.  oats 017

All together and pretty on the plate, ready to be devoured!

The chicken parm turned out great! It was yummy and moist and fresh and full of flavor!

My veggies were also yummy too! It was a fabulous meal, quick and easy and tasty too!oats 021 

The wonderful people at Bertolli wanted to provide one luck And Her Little Dog Too reader with their very own basting gift set, a prize valued at $125!

    I loved the cowboys (and girl) too, but I think my favorite part was watching them cook the beef shank with the bone marrow. It sounded and looked DELICIOUS! And I was so jealous watching them eat 😉 And of course I'm a follower!
