A Special Meal With A Special Lady!


This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links.

When Stouffer's asked me to review two of their lasagnas I told a few friends that I would be their perfect spokeswoman! In fact, while picking up the free product at Walmart "to try" I bought extra lasagna to re-stock my freezer. :-) We love lasagna in our house. We also absolutely love inviting friends and family into our home. However, I'll be the first one to admit, I need a little help when it comes to preparing the meal. I only find myself in the kitchen attempting to cook to keep my children and husband alive. I also don't like the stress of preparing a full meal when friends are over...I'd much rather be enjoying their company.

The convenience and great taste of a Stouffer's lasagna gives me more than enough reason to be a repeat customer. You can throw together a fresh salad and some fresh bread (or garlic toast...yum!) to add to the menu and everyone goes away happy!
I shared on Instagram that my mom (who was living with us) recently moved back east. It has been such a special time having her here and we wanted to enjoy every moment of our last night together. We enjoyed an incredible spring afternoon in the great outdoors and I planned a special meal for all of us to enjoy at home. 




Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the lasagna!

For our special dinner we tried two different lasagnas.


·         Serving Size: 5
·         Cooking Time: 34 Minutes (Microwave); 70 Minutes (Oven)
·         Stouffer’s lasagna is topped with fresh cheese and aged Parmesan that browns at 375 degrees

o   Freshly made pasta laid by hand

·         Serving Size: 4.5
·         Cooking Time: 24 Minutes (Microwave); 65 Minutes (Oven)
·         A new product from Stouffer’s
·         The same lasagna people know and love now with Italian Sausage, Ground Beef, and Pepperoni
·         We tested 35 variations to get the perfect recipe
·         Our lasagna is made for you to love by our cooks with quality ingredients like:

  39. We are always trying to add more veggies to our meals so buttered corn, spicy green beans, and my personal favorite, asparagus. Everything is quick and easy so it can all be prepared while the lasagna is cooking and we are setting the table.
