A few days ago, my daughters & I found ourselves super hungry in the late afternoon. We had been running around town almost all day. Between Sophia’s Pre-K show, Charlotte’s swim lessons, a trip to the mall and some other errands, we had been out of the house almost the entire day. We were hungry and needed a quick, easy and delicious dinner! So, on our way home from the mall, we went to BJ’s to pick up some Bertolli® Pasta Sauces. I’ve always loved the rich flavor and premium taste of Bertolli® products and I knew it would help me put a tasty dinner on the table quickly. Here is the dinner I was able to whip together by taking a delicious #BertolliTuscanTour !

I love shopping at my local BJ’s store! I can always find everything I need there at great, low prices! By buying items in bulk there, I can save money and always ensure that my household has the supplies & ingredients that we need. I found the Bertolli® bottles in the aisle with all the pasta sauces.

I picked up a pack of 3 bottles of Bertolli® Pasta Sauces! Here is the pack of 3 Bertolli® bottles I came home with: two “Tomato & Basil” bottles and one “Olive Oil & Garlic” bottle.

Once I came home, I cooked a few servings of spaghetti.

I then topped that with a generous drizzle of the Bertolli® Pasta Sauce in Tomato & Basil! This sauce has such an exquisite flavor and reminds me of sitting in a fabulous Italian Ristorante! That’s no surprise, because their Red Sauces are created by professional chefs with vine-ripened tomatoes! Yum!

After a quick sprinkle of parmesan cheese and dried oregano, this dish was done!

I love that by using Bertolli® Pasta Sauce in my meals, I can save so much time, which gives me more opportunity to enjoy the finer moments in life, like laughing & playing with my children! While we ate, Sophia was telling me a series of “knock knock” jokes she had learned in school that day! Next to the pasta, I prepared a super quick salad. For the salad, I simply combined some romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes, olives and red onions in a bowl & dressed it with a balsamic vinaigrette.

The rich flavor of tomatoes in the Bertolli® Pasta Sauce makes preparing a Tuscan-style meal effortless! I love how I can really taste the combination of vine-ripened tomatoes, summer-leaf basil and extra virgin olive oil. Each bite of my pasta was infused with that premium Italian flavor that virtually transports me to Tuscany!

I also wanted to mention that Bertolli® is celebrating their 150th anniversary, which speaks to the long-standing quality of their products! In honor of this anniversary, Bertolli® is sharing 150 ways to bring Tuscany to the table with different meal ideas! Just as Bertolli® is celebrating their history and traditions, my family and I love enjoying a plate of pasta together and discussing our own family’s traditions! My husband came home right as the food was being plated and we all spent the whole meal sitting at the dining table together discussing details about our days and even making fun plans for a fun, little vacation! (Psst, we’ll be taking the girls to their favorite children’s museum as a surprise!)

So, the next time you’re looking for a quick and easy meal, but you don’t want to sacrifice on flavor, consider incorporating Bertolli® Pasta Sauces into your meals! Looking for more recipe inspiration? Be sure to check out their Pinterest page here for tons of mouth-watering recipes!
