For the next two weeks I’m participating in the #ToscanaTasteOff and I’ve created some awesome recipes using the new Villaggio Toscana. Get your kitchens ready and freezers empty … you will be making this Kale Romano Strata all winter long. I kid you not, I made this THREE times in one weekend, that’s how big of a crowd pleaser it is in my family!!! Not to mention that it is so easy to whip up in advance or to even make two and freeze one. I always cook with thick sliced Italian bread, because it always tastes and turns out better when it’s baked. This time I tried using the new Villaggio Toscana with olive oil and it was SO soft and fresh. The natural olive oil flavour complemented my Italian inspired strata perfectly.
