I’ve teamed up with Tuttorosso Tomatoes for a fun, spiralizer-themed spring campaign called “Inspiralize the Spring.”
With this, I’ve lightened up some classic Italian favorites using the spiralizer! Also, some amazing bloggers and I will be hosting a virtual dinner party, starting on April 6th – so mark your calendars! The virtual dinner party will feature new bloggers each day, bringing you a new spiralized course!
Most importantly, Tuttorosso Tomatoes will be offering some Inspiralized giveaways (including the Inspiralizer!), as part of this spring campaign, running through April 15th!
“Inspiralize the Spring” officially kicks off today!
One lucky winner will be awarded the Grand Prize worth about $500 which includes a Tuttorosso deluxe picnic basket, the Inspiralizer, the Inspiralized cookbook, and kitchen gadgets personally selected by yours truly!
I’m so proud to be collaborating with Tuttorosso Tomatoes – I’ve been watching my grandparents cook with their canned tomatoes for, well, ever!
A few months ago, I actually went to a Tuttorosso event in NYC and they emptied out a few of the competitor’s tomatoes into bins for us to taste and I was absolutely shocked at what I found: some of the competing products’ tomatoes either were unripe, bruised, broken or simply tasted terrible, when compared to Tuttorosso!
Also, while Tuttorosso’s tomatoes come in a can and not a glass jar, rest assured – they informed me that BPA in enamel liners does not leach out due to acidity. Leaching is actually a result of excessive heat. In order to verify this, they tested their tomato products. Using three different independent certified laboratories, Tuttorosso’s canned tomato products have been tested at various periods of their 30 month shelf life to determine the amount of BPA in the product.
With the containers that they are currently using, largely due to Tuttorosso’s proprietary canning process, their tomato products are indicating no detectable levels of BPA in the finished goods, even at the 30 month ‘best by date’.
Today, I’m Inspiralizing the Spring with this recipe for my Tuscan Kale and Sausage Ragu with Butternut Squash Fettuccine. This dish is a healthy, flavorful way of enjoying the last of those winter squashes, before we launch fully into spring and summer!
If you’d like to make a big batch and freeze this dish, you can! Spiralize the butternut squash and put it in an airtight container in the refrigerator and then prepare the ragu and store that separately.
When you’re ready to eat, just reheat the ragu over the stovetop and bake the butternut squash noodles according to the recipe!
Note: While Tuttorosso Tomatoes sponsored this campaign, all opinions are my own, as always.
