I don’t know where you are in the world, but here in St. Louis we have actually experienced some cooler days and nights.

There has even been some sweater weather in the evenings.

This is my favorite time of year, but it’s also the busiest for us.

School is in full swing and our nights only have a limited amount of time to fit in all the activities including dinner.

I like to spend time with my family each night eating dinner together and talking.

Who couldn’t use a few easy recipe ideas or even a way to host a perfect pasta night?

With Mezzetta it’s easy with the delicious flavors in your choice of Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade pasta sauces.

I love enlisting my children’s help in the kitchen and when creating pasta with an already made sauce, it’s super easy to do.

But aside from that, making a lovely Italian meal of Garlic Chicken Parmesan on a weeknight becomes so simple with Mezzetta and also with my kids help!
