I have always had a love affair with Italian cuisine and ever since my husband and I came back from our vacation in Italy a few weeks ago, I just cannot get enough of those authentic Italian dishes.
I saw the many varieties of Bertolli Meals for 2 at my local Vons and decided to try one because, to be honest, on some days, I just do not feel like cooking a meal from scratch and making a big mess after working all day. I want something simple, tasty and reasonably priced.
I chose the Bertolli Chicken Margherita with Penne Pasta for our menu. These are so easy to make and I also love how inexpensive they are. You can get a meal for less than the price of two lattes at the coffee shop.
The chicken was flavorful and tender, and the Margherita sauce was reminiscent of our dinners in Rome.
We opened up a bottle of wine and enjoyed our dinner.
The pasta was cooked perfectly and we both talked about our day, discussed trip memories and enjoyed our meal. After dinner, clean up was a breeze, so we settled into our recliner chairs and caught up on our weekly TV shows together. We love this time together. Nothing like living the good life or as they say in Italy, La Belle Vita!
