As moms, most of us have a go-to recipe for busy nights. My younger daughter is involved in a youth opera production right now, and through November, her practice schedule is crazy. I use my slow cooker when I can, but even that takes some preparation and forethought. My go-to? Pasta! It's so versatile, and my kids love it. Their favorite pasta recipe is lasagna, and with this version of Lazy Lasagna, I can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Fortunately, this is a great time to make lazy lasagna, because Kroger has the Taste of Italy program in stores right now through October 11th. The Kroger sponsored Taste of Italy program® offers you a simple and delicious way to add the classic Bertolli® taste that you love to a range of delicious meals. Adding Bertolli® Tomato & Basil Sauce to the other wholesome ingredients in this dish makes a delicious and healthy meal for my family. And with so many different varieties of Bertolli® sauces, the possibilities really are endless! Give yourself, your family, and your friends the delicious, Tuscan-inspired taste that they have been craving! Visit the Taste of Italy program at Kroger to pick up other items to go with your Italian themed meal.
