Italian Dinner

This post is sponsored by La Famiglia DelGrosso. The opinions and text are all mine.

La Famiglia DelGrosso is America’s oldest family-owned sauce maker. Each sauce provides a delicious and authentic flavor that completes any Italian dish, with whole plum tomatoes right from Italy! It also doesn’t have any added sugar, which is an added bonus for me. I love creating a family favorite dish using La Famiglia DelGrosso sauces. On tonight’s menu: Lasagna using La Familia DelGrosso Sunday Marinara

My guys and I sure do love pasta nights and we have it on the menu very often. I am a huge fan of keeping a dish like lasagna simple, so I opted for the Sunday Marinara variety. A fun fact about the brand: each of the different sauce recipes is created by a DelGrosso family member, which I think is so cool! Henry and William love the DelGrosso Sunday Marinara, my husband prefers the Tomato Basil Masterpiece, and I can’t get enough of the Fireworks Sauce (OH EM GEE – SOOOO GOOD!) The sauces are available at Publix – and there is a promotion valid in the Extra Savings flyer from 11/6 – 11/19


o La Famiglia DelGrosso Sunday Marinara: A delicious classic combination of fresh garden tomatoes and herbs

o La Famiglia DelGrosso Tomato Basil Masterpiece: a sauce full of intense tomato and basil flavor

o La Famiglia DelGrosso Fireworks Sauce (my personal favorite): a delicious blend of tomatoes, zucchini and a bit of spice

o La Famiglia DelGrosso Pizza Sauce: the perfect sauce for homemade pizza night



+ 6-8 sheets of lasagna (depends on depth of pan)

+ 1 Jar of La Famiglia DelGrosso Sunday Marinara

+ 3 cups ricotta cheese

+ 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

+ ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

+ 1 egg

+ 1 tablespoon olive oil

+ Salt and pepper

+ Fresh basil


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. 2. Cook lasagna noodles in salted boiled water according to packaging, then drain and rinse them in cold water. Try to keep the noodles from sticking.
  3. 3. Mix egg and ricotta cheese together in a bowl.
  4. 4. Using any pan of choice (my pan 4×12), layer sauce and noodles in an even layer. Spread ricotta and egg mixture with mozzarella. Continue to do this until all noodles are used.
  5. 5. Cover the lasagna with the pan top.
  6. 6. Bake for 30 minutes covered, then bake uncovered for 15 minutes.
  7. 7. Top with fresh basil and parmesan.
  8. 8. Pair with a delicious salad of choice (Caesar, Italian, house) and fresh bread! Enjoy.

This recipe is a family favorite. We like to keep it simple with the Sunday Marinara, but you can customize this recipe to please your family’s taste. Switching out the Sunday Marinara with any of the other DelGrosso sauces would be a delicious twist on this classic lasagna.

Perfect Danone Oikos Blended Nonfat Greek Yogurt at Publix

This post is sponsored by Oikos Greek Yogurt. All thoughts and opinions are my own. AD

This is such a busy time of year. A time that I get excited for, but also need to find something easy for me to eat! I am getting the boys ready to go back to school, I myself am getting ready to go back to school, and I am still maintaining all that goes on in the home. And on top of all that is going on, there are still activities and sports. It truly never ends with a full house. I do love it all and it’s my favorite time of year. I absolutely love the beginning of the school year.

There is no better way to get my breakfast, snack or lunch needs taken care of than with the help of Oikos Greek yogurt. I am obsessed with Oikos new Oikos Blended Nonfat Greek Yogurt! It is made with creamy, fresh milk sourced only from family-owned farms. With flavors like Vanilla, Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry and Plain there is a flavor for everyone. Each fruit flavor is packed with 50% more real fruit chunks than previous Oikos Greek Yogurt.

So why do I love the New Oikos Blended Nonfat Greek Yogurt – Well they believe the best ingredients make the best yogurt and I totally agree. They are non-GMO Project Verified yogurt. Made with fresh, creamy, cool milk. From family owned farms. Not too sour. Not too sweet. Simple. Good. Joy. That is a total win for me! Let me break down my favorite three below!

Blended Greek Yogurt Oikos – THIS IS ANYTHING BUT PLAIN! I mean that. The flavor is perfect to eat just on its own, but feel free to add granola or fruit. Since it is mango season, my go-to fruit is mangos, so I have been placing them in my Oikos plain yogurt. IT IS SO GOOD!

I cannot say “VANILLA” too loud in my house. My boys come running for the Oikos Vanilla bean yogurt. Truthfully, I need to hide them because they will eat the four back in one to two days. The vanilla makes me think of dessert and it is just perfect.

LOADED WITH REAL STRAWBERRY – Oh yes, it is sure is! This cup of goodness is just perfect as it is. I love that I don’t have to worry about added fruit and can grab this on the go for break, lunch or snack.

I just love to grab an Oikos Blended Nonfat Greek Yogurt whenever I am in my busy seasons, like now! I just grab it out of my fridge, pack it in my bag and that’s it! It is super easy and quick. To be honest, you don’t even need a spoon if you have a fork. IT IS THAT PERFECT. You can keep it simple or add whatever toppings you would like. Ultimately my favorite is adding fresh mangos to the Blended Greek Plain Yogurt. It’s seriously amazing and it really does help start my day or give me a much-needed pick me up during the day.

If you have a Publix near you – the next time you are going – make sure to pick up these amazing yogurts by Oikos. Especially the new Oikos Blended Nonfat Greek Yogurt. You will be very happy you did and make it your own or keep it the way it is.
