Buitoni Contest & Product Review & Give-a-way...



DISCOVER OUR ITALIAN MASTERPIECES CONTEST

With the holidays quickly approaching every ones lives seem to get busier and it's much harder to plan home cooked meals. Well
Buitoni recently sent me a few coupons - one good for their New Premium Frozen Meals and another good for either their Refrigerated Pasta or Sauce which are so easy to make and both provide a fabulous meal option without the hard work!



They also sent me a Discover Our Italian Masterpieces 2011 Calendar which is a huge calendar that includes recipes and colored pictures of Buitoni Meals to inspire cooking!


They wanted me to try out some of their products and to help promote their "Discover Our Italian Masterpieces" Contest where the Grand Prize Winner will win a week's vacation for two to Tuscany, Italy, which includes a two day trip to Casa Buitoni in Sansepolcro, Italy, $2000 cash, a year's supply of Buitoni products, a digital camera, car service to and from airports, and private tours around Italy!!

Nine finalists will receive Tuscany-inspired Buitoni "Discover Your Dream Dinner" prize packages that include a year's supply of Buitoni products. Additionally, each month 150 entrants will be randomly selected to receive a Buitoni calender and VIP coupon. And everyone who enters will be a winner when they receive an exclusive recipe from Casa Buitoni via e-mail!

Signing up is easy - Buitoni wants to know what inspires you to be creative in the kitchen when preparing and enjoying Italian cuisine. Share a photo and a few sentences about what inspires you and you could win the grand prize trip for two to Casa Buitoni in Italy to discover where true Italian masterpieces are created! (See full rules and entry details at Buitoni.com/contest). (No purchase necessary to enter or win. Contest runs from 9 a.m. ET 9/15/2010 to 11:59 p.m. ET 12/31/2010, and is open to legal US and D.C. residents age 21 and over. Void where prohibited. Visit BUITONI.COM/CONTEST for prize details, full rules and to enter).


I used my Premium Frozen Meal for Two coupon on Buitoni's Southern Italian Style Meat Lasagna and the Refrigerated Pasta or Sauce coupon on their Buitoni Marinara Sauce.


Their new frozen meal's for two can be found in the frozen dinner section at your local grocery store. With 11 different meals to choose from these are the perfect meal option when you don't have a lot of time to prepare one yourself. They are made with only the best, all-natural ingredients and are so easy to prepare, just pop them in the oven or the microwave!


We really enjoyed the Southern Italian Style Meat Lasagna that we were able to review. It has freshly made lasagna noodles which are layered with all-natural Italian sausage meat sauce, Mozzarella, custom Impastata Ricotta and Parmesan Cheeses. It was very easy to make and very good as well!


The next product we tried was Buitoni's Marinara Sauce which is found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store (mine was located near the deli and produce) along with several other refrigerated items like Angel Hair Pasta, Cheese and Roasted Garlic Tortellini, Alfredo Sauce and many other kinds of Buitoni pastas and sauces all ready help make your meal making easier!


We made spaghetti with our marinara sauce and I loved how all I had to do was pour this sauce onto our cooked pasta and our meal was ready! So simple and the taste was even better! This classic Neapolitan style sauce captures the fruity flavor of ripe tomatoes, zesty garlic, onions and fragrant basil! My husband and kids loved the flavor and we will definitely be buying more and trying other kinds!
