Whether you're hosting an intimate dinner for friends or a reunion-worthy family gathering, there's nothing simpler (or more crowd-pleasing!) than baked lasagna. The ease of assembling in advance, then setting and forgetting it in the oven as it reaches bubbly golden perfection while guests arrive, is unparalleled. And when it comes to crowd-pleasing baked pasta, it doesn't get more delicious than Giada's Easy Holiday Lasagna!
This all-in-one meal kit has all the components for the perfect lasagna - along with the recipe to make it HERE!
This kit contains:
Lasagne Sheets Pasta: Unlike the kind you see in stores here, Italian lasagne has a straight, rather than frilled, edge. The delicately thin sheets stack neatly, allowing sky-high layers that are easy to slice and serve.
Dried Oregano: No Italian pantry is complete without a steady supply of oregano, and this dried oregano from Filippone is a beautiful way to stock up. This organic oregano is grown on a small family farm in Sicily and dried right on the branch, so there's no doubt about what you're getting.
Small Tuscan Salt: Created by world-famous Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini, this masterful salt blend is known as Profumo del Chianti (“the scent of Chianti”). Fragrant with sun-dried herbs, including sage, lavender, and rosemary, combined with crunchy sea salt, this blend smells like a walk through the Tuscan countryside, where these plants grow in wild abundance.
Organic Tomato Sauce with Basil: It starts with ripe tomatoes from Puglia, the “heel” of Italy’s boot, where the southern heat (the region gets, on average, 2,500 hours of sun a year!) is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. The tomatoes’ natural sugars are concentrated by those long hours in the sun, giving them a well-balanced flavor profile that sings with ripe sweetness and umami goodness. They’re pureed fresh into a silky-smooth passata, then cooked quickly with sweet sauteed onion, olive oil, and fresh Genovese basil. The result is a classically uncomplicated, deeply flavorful sauce that tastes homemade without the fuss.
