Italian cooking just got uncomplicated! We only used 5 ingredients (sometimes less) to create each of these tasty Italian recipes. And some recipes only take 30 minutes to make. This might seem too good to be true, but it's not! We've got everything from strombolis, to slow cooked beef sandwiches, meatball bakes, and shrimp pesto pasta. 

  1. Gustare Vita Ravioli Bake

    Although we love traditional lasagna, there's just something a little special about our Gustare Vita Ravioli Bake.

  2. Pesto Chicken and Zoodle Bowls

    In a rush for dinner? Pick up Parmesan pesto marinated chicken from your local Hy-Vee meat counter and pair with zucchini noodles, Gustare Vita pasta sauce, and Parmesan cheese. 

  3. Meatball Sub Casserole

    Meatball sub who? We live in the Midwest ... that's why we made it into a casserole that might just rival the classic sub.
