Tuscan Greens, Beans and Penne

When I think of the most romantic place on earth, I dream of Italy—the scenery, the wine, and the fabulous food! Creating a romantic dinner is simple and so much fun when you have fresh ingredients from SHOP ‘n SAVE and my expertise to guide you.. You take care of the candles and wine, and we will help you with the meal.

SHOP ‘n SAVE Wild Harvest free from and organic product line has so many choices to make creating healthy and delicious foods both fun and affordable. For instance, I added a twist to the ordinary beans and greens by utilizing all of the fresh, organic Wild Harvest herbs, as well as organic penne pasta. This brought a whole new flavor to my Tuscan Style Beans and Greens, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

I can almost hear the Italian music playing in the background as I prepare this delicious combination of herbs, garlic and Romano cheese.

That’s amore!!!
