Into the Heart of Italy by Bertolli

Written by Diana - March 15, 2010 3 Comments

@Bertolli has invited all of us to a tweet-up – Bertolli’s Taste and Tweet (#bertolliitaly) tonight during Desperate Housewives (ABC, 9/8c) – .   The Taste & Tweet is to introduce you to the new Into the Heart of Italy Webisodes with Rocco DiSpirito, Marissa Tomei and Dan Cortese.  They travel to Italy participate in challenges – that involve food, and Italian Culture and end up with a great family meal.

I tried their Chicken Florentine & Farfalle for dinner tonight.  We loved the frozen pasta dinner.  I served an asparagus side dish with some garlic toast.  One package states that it serves 2 . After I heated it, I was in agreement, and so added another bag to the pan because there are three adults sized people at dinner.  There were leftovers though, and we’ll eat them for leftover night sometime this week. I like that it only takes ten minutes to cook on the stovetop.  When the kids were younger we survived on soccer nights with frozen pasta dinners.  It was more important for my kids to sit down with me for a meal, then for us to pick up fast food to eat in the car on the way to soccer.  I read that 66 percent of kids who sit down to family meals don’t do drugs, and that reinforced my sit down to dinner together ideas.

There’s also a sweepstake you can enter in order to win a Culinary Vacation to Italy. Your own adventure to the Heart of Italy, wouldn’t that be cool.

Join in on the tweets – tweeters get entered into a drawing for a local cheese making class.  Every Tweet using #BertolliItaly between Sunday, March 14 from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM EST Monday, March 15, will be entered to win the prize, which will be selected by a random drawing Monday.
