Tuttorosso {Review & Recipe}

I love finding new recipes for my family to enjoy. 
I'm excited to share with you Tuttorosso's website and products. 

All their products are made in the US, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, no MSG and are all natural. They now have a "No Salt Added" products that you can choose from. 
I didn't need to be sold on them since I've used their products before. And my food always comes out fantastic when I use their products. 
Tuttorosso sent me a kit that came in a reusable tote that contained Martha Stewart Living Magazine of the November 2014 issue. In this issue it contains full-page ads that features beautiful photography of ingredients needed for a favorite Tuttorosso family recipe; Lasagna Primavera. Also on they will be sharing  'Thirty Italian Family Favorite' Recipes
Of course they sent some of their products like 28 oz products of Crushed Tomatoes with basil, Peeled Plum Italian Style Tomatoes & Sauce and also a 6 oz can of Tomato Paste.
Lastly they sent me an apron to get my cook on.

Looking through their site, I honestly wanted to cook everything. 
But one recipe caught my eye and besides I've been craving it too. 
I decided to make their Classic Italian Lasagna Recipe. 
I had to get a few more ingredients besides the ones that were given to me to create this delicious dish. If you are interested in this recipe or others then check out Tuttorosso's website
