Red Gold Simple Gourmet Lasagna #RGLasagna #spon #recipe #ohio

Family-owned and family-run Red Gold is celebrating the comfort of lasagna this winter and are encouraging folks to make their own home-made gourmet lasagna.

To make it easy and because lasagna can sometimes be intimidating and tricky, Red Gold has put together a base recipe for foolproof, “All-In-One" lasagna using dry noodles that cook as you bake.
Red Gold’s basic lasagna recipe is a full-flavored lasagna that is layered together in just minutes with Red Gold tomatoes and three cheeses…. And of course you can add all kinds of things to it to make it your own gourmet lasagna — meat, veggies, etc.

 Red Gold has been around since the 1940s focused on growing local in the Midwest (Ohio, Michigan and Indiana), where true seasons positively impact the flavor of tomatoes.

Now that winter has hit, this is the perfect time for a hearty home cooked meal that will warm your bones!  Red Gold's base recipe allows you to create a more advanced lasagna experience.  Ways to make it gourmet at to add hand-breaded chicken and you have a Chicken Parmesan Lasagna!  Add a bunch of harvest veggies like red peppers, zucchini and broccoli in the layers for a Fresh Harvest  Lasagna!
