Hi friends! We’ve been on a roll lately in our home, making more and more of our dinners at home. It’s been a nice change as we’re settling in to having baby number 3 in the home and we’re almost getting into a routine of things again. Now, our family favorites are still making it into the weekly rotation, but we’re also trying out a few new things here and there but one thing is consistent – I always make sure they’re quick and easy meals and if they can be made in one pot – even better! One thing that makes dinner much simpler is the ability to find quality sauces that are just as delicious as homemade. Now you may think that it’s not possible with alfredo sauce, but I would challenge you to give Bertolli Alfredo Sauce.
It’s been more than 150 years since Francesco Bertolli began selling his olive oil in the small town of Lucca, Italy. In 1865, Francesco opened a small storefront business selling regional foods such as olive oil, wine, cheese and olives. In the late 1800s, Italian immigrants in America, unable to find the products to which they were accustomed, wrote to Bertolli asking for crates of olive oil. In reply, Bertolli sent orders to America and thus became the first exporter of olive oil. From its beginnings in olive oil, Bertolli today has grown to also include a broad range of Italian-inspired pasta sauce and skillet meals. Today, more than 150 years since Francesco Bertolli began selling his olive oil in Lucca, Italy, the original “Villa Bertolli” at piazza S. Donato still stands – just as Bertolli remains at the heart of the Italian-inspired cuisine enjoyed at home by millions of families around the world. And it is just this passion that makes incorporating Bertolli into our family meals a no brainer!
