I was in for a big surprise in the kitchen when I married my Italian husband. He grew up cooking with his grandfather and food is very important to his family. Although he doesn’t do it often, spending all day in the kitchen making sauce from tomatoes is a favorite family activity. He doesn’t follow recipes; every Italian dish he’s made in our home has been from memories of cooking with his grandfather making it impossible for me to ever replicate on my own. He’s extremely picky and we rarely dine out at Italian restaurants because every dish is compared to the homemade meals he grew up with. I don’t blame him – my favorite story about his grandfather is him bringing his own sauce to restaurants when they dined out. While making tortillas with my grandmother is how I grew up in the kitchen, I have absolutely no experience to be proud of cooking Italian meals. Enter Bertolli®. The Bertolli Chicken Parmigiana & Penne paired with an easy parmesan ricotta dip is the perfect meal that even my very particular Italian husband loves. Bonus, during the month of February at all Kroger banner stores, Bertolli Meals for Two will be the lowest price of the year. I stopped by my local Fry’s Grocery and picked up everything I needed to make a tasty Italian dinner this week.
Bertolli Frozen meals create more than just dinner, they create memories and moments together. Moments created by not spending hours in the kitchen preparing dinner are my favorite because let’s be honest here, I simply don’t have time to do that often.
Parmesan Ricotta Dip Recipe
- 4 C ricotta cheese
- 1 C parmesan cheese
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 C Italian bread crumbs
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a mixer.
Dip will be thick but all ingredients should be completely mixed together.
Bake the parmesan ricotta dip for 25 minutes in oven preheated to 375°. While dip is baking, prepare Bertolli Chicken Parmigiana & Penne. The one skillet meal is easy to make. Simply heat the frozen meal on your stovetop.
The parmesan ricotta dip will be browned and bubbly. Allow to cool before serving.
Chicken parmigiana & penne, fresh bread and warm parmesan ricotta dip – dinner is served!
Don’t just eat. Mangia.
Bertolli brings excitement to everyday meals for your family without spending the entire day preparing dinner!
I purchased everything I needed for our Italian dinner at Fry’s, my favorite Kroger banner store. Bertolli meals are in the freezer aisle but be sure to pick up fresh bread for your parmesan ricotta dip too!
This easy five ingredient parmesan ricotta dip is a favorite in our home. What do prepare with your favorite Bertolli pasta dish?
