Spaghetti Casserole

My kids love this recipe. Bill and I think it is a tad bland, but we haven’t figured out what needs to be added to give it a little more kick.

Freschetta Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

All pizzas are not created equal. I recently learned that when I tried the Freschetta FlatBread Pizza.  I’m so use to frozen pizza tasting — well, pretty bland.  Freschetta pizzas?  Not bland at all!  My family and I tried the Zesty Italian pizza and I’d give it two thumbs up!  This flatbread pizza has the thinnest crust I’ve ever seen.  Thin, but yummy though.  The Zesty Italian pizza has pepperoni, genoa salami, italian sausage, and mozzarella and asiago cheese.  What impressed me was that these are quality ingredients.  They use all-natural cheeses and a sauce made from real, ripe tomatoes.  The meat is in big chunks with a ton of flavor.  You see these kind of ingredients on fresh pizzas — not frozen ones!  Yet, Freschetta managed to do it and keep the taste!  There are other varieties you can try also:   Roasted Garlic and Spinach, Pepperoni, and Five Cheese.  (I’ve tried all except the Roasted Garlic and Spinach, and they were all yummy).

If this sounds like something you’d like to try (and you want to try this!), you can get $1 off coupon at the Freschetta site.  This pizza is definitely going to be on my shopping list from here on out.
