Bring Home Authentic Tuscan Taste with Bertolli

Luscious Rosa Lasagna with Bertolli.

For 150 years, Bertolli has brought the heart and taste of Tuscany directly to your table, making time spent with family and friends even more enjoyable. So be sure to pick up a jar or two next time you make your way into Target and keep the tasty tradition going.   I made one of my favorite italian dishes…lasagna.  I used the recipe for Lucscious Rosa Lagagna found at  (Did you all know Target had a site for recipes?)


You an pick up all the ingredients necessary for this dish at your local Target store:

  • 2 containers (15 ounces each) ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 jar Bertolli Tomato & Basil Sauce
  • 1 jar Bertolli Alfredo Sauce
  • 12 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained


Combine ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and eggs in large bowl.  Set aside.


With this recipe you combine both the Tomato and Alfredo Sauce for a creamy style tomato sauce which I love.


Spread 1 cup sauce mixture in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Layer 4 lasagna noodles, then 1 cup sauce mixture and 1/2 of the ricotta mixture; repeat. Top with remaining 4 noodles, then sauce mixture and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.


Cover with aluminum foil and bake 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake until bubbling, about 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.   Head to Target Recipes for the Lucscious Rosa Lagagna Recipe and other recipes featuring Bertolli Sauces.

Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cake

I picked up a box of the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake ice cream bars and got creative by making a Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cake.  To make this fun dessert, prepare boxed strawberry flavored cake mix as directed. Use half of recipe in 9×9 pan and bake for 25 minutes or until done. (I used the excess cake mix to make cupcakes).

Top cake with Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Bars

After cake is done take out of oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bars and remove sticks and place on top of semi-warm cake (you will use 6). Let sit for about 10 minutes or until the ice cream starts to soften.  Use a spatula to smooth out the ice cream bars on top to make a nice even layer. Place in freezer for 3 hours.
