So, anyways I was telling you about eating on a great Valentine’s Day Dinner! We can’t always make it out of the house – sad but a true story (I’m guessing at least some of you can relate? Please say yes!). I decided there’s nothing more romantic than a delicious rich Authentic Italian Dinner. They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach right? Bertolli absolutely helped me in this case. I now have the recipe to make so we can enjoy our Valentine’s Dinner! Light a few candles, put on some music and enjoy a night in Tuscany thanks to Bertolli!

  1. This alfredo casserole sounds like my perfect dinner! I love all the ingredients together and I love that it’s so simple to prepare! Bet this tastes amazing 🙂

  2. Did someone say bacon!

  3. I love that you baked it too. It is rich and creamy and crispy!

  4. This is what defines comfort food for me! I’d totally enjoy this meal!!! Looks delicious!

  5. After 24 years together, The Hubby and I went out to a restaurant for Valentine’s. I’ve always cooked at home or we’ve ordered sushi. Didn’t want to fight the crowds. Turns out we’ve been right all along. We don’t have kids, we just knew we preferred to celebrate quietly together. So I think you made the right decision and after seeing that delish dish you made, I bet your hubby feels the same way! 🙂

  6. Is there anything more comforting than a creamy pasta? Lovely dish.

  7. I totally get the “staying in” thing! I used to be so into the restaurant scene … and then we had twins. Game changer! Even though we have willing, wonderfully qualified grandparent-babysitters in abundance, going out just wan’t the same … as in, it wasn’t very frequent! You’ve got the perfect solution, though … just make dinner in so darn good that you don’t even want to go out! Mmmmmm … like with this yummy (and super-easy … yay!) casserole!

  8. What a delicious casserole and so easy to make. I’d say this is a winner on all counts.

  9. Simple, flavorful and easy! What more could one want for q quickie mid-week meal?

  10. I’m so used to making my own alfredo sauce, I always hesitate to try jarred sauce, but this is a great brand. Love the bacon added.

  11. It is afternoon here and I start thinking about dinner! This is just perfect!

  12. Talk about incredible comfort food. I have been into chicken and bacon recipes too lately. They are so good with a yummy sauce like this one!

  13. You can not go wrong combining Cheese sauce with bacon! Love how simple it sounds using Bartoli Sauce!

  14. This looks so delicious and comforting! Love the idea of using alfredo sauce in this casserole.

  15. The perfect comfort dish!
