Have you thought about what to do yet for Valentine’s Day?  It falls on a weeknight so that complicates matters.  After a full workday, you want something special yet simple to enjoy with your loved one.  Read on because I’ve got the perfect Valentine’s Day idea!

About Bertolli:

It’s as easy as combining one jar of Bertolli® Organic Traditional Tomato & Basil Sauce with one jar of Bertolli® Organic Creamy Alfredo Sauce to create a delicious and savory Rosa sauce for instant romantic meal magic!

Although there are many Italian pasta sauces, only one is from Tuscany–Bertolli®.  Bertolli® Sauces have a flavor as unique as the region where they’re born.  It’s the only premium sauce that is prepared simply and cooked lightly to lock in the layers of delicious flavor.

Both organic sauces bring rich, authentic Tuscan flavor to your table!  Perfect for your Valentine’s Day dinner at home!

How to make Chicken in Rosa Sauce with Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Spinach:

  • After sauteing some baby spinach, brown the chicken then transfer it to a plate.

  • Combine the sauces:  One 24-ounce jar of Bertolli® Organic Traditional Tomato & Basil Sauce and one 15-ounce jar of Bertolli® Organic Creamy Alfredo Sauce.  (I do it off the heat so it does not splatter.)

  • Add the chicken back in and let it simmer a little bit so the chicken cooks through.
  • Add roasted red bell pepper and the spinach back in…

  • Sprinkle on a little Parmesan or Romano cheese and serve!  So easy and so elegant!
  • There’s enough sauce in both jars to generously sauce four chicken breasts!  So, if you can’t find a sitter because they all have Valentine’s Day plans and need more than dinner for two or celebrate “Galentine’s” instead, this dish is the perfect answer!

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil - divided
