Costantino's Kitchen, delicious Italian additions to your meals. #Giveaway




Are you looking for a great, pasta sauce, tomatoes, or other sauces to use in your Italian cooking? I would love to introduce you to a great company Costantino's Kitchen. Here is a little information about Costantino's Kitchen from the website: 

The matriarch of the family, Angie Mariani Costantino, was born in San Pietro Avellana, a small town in the Isernia province and the Molise Region of Italy. Just east of Rome, the town is on the border with the Abruzzo region, just below Monte Capraro . surrounded by forests of beech and oak trees and pinewoods, which make it a truly great tourist destination in the summer. These recipes were taught to her by her mother, who learned them from her mother, also named Angiolina. 

Years after arriving in America, Angie taught her recipe to her grandson, Christopher. A culinary school graduate, Christopher still follows his grandmother's tradition by slow cooking his delicious sauces in order to deepen the flavor. No chemicals or preservatives are added to the sauce - only hard work and love.
Costantino's Kitchen is dedicated to providing delicious Italian food products directly to the consumer through Farmers Markets, as well as through established, respected retail outlets, such as grocers, delis and specialty food markets. All products are made in Tempe, AZ in a health department approved facility. Great care is taken in the facility and our safety and sanitation standards exceed county expectations. Costantino’s Kitchen produces gourmet, home-style pasta sauces from recipes that have been in the family for over five generations. Costantino's Kitchen also makes delicious spice rubs, ready-to-make soup mixes and flavorful garlic oils.
I was very fortunate to be able to try a variety of items from Costantino's Kitchen including:
GRANDMA ANGIE'S TOMATO BASIL
  - Costantino's Kitchen is proud to offer our first pasta sauce. Combining the sweet taste of tomatoes with the spiciness of great Italian basil, fresh sautéed carrots, onions and garlic creates a wonderful depth of flavor and sweetness. We use an old and treasured recipe that has been in the family for four generations and make it the same way now as it was back in Italy. Price: $8.99

TUSCAN STEAK RUB

Last night I made a delicious dinner with some great items from Costantino's Kitchen. I am a busy working mom, so when I get home I have a short time to get dinner ready. So I like to have food that is tasty and quick to make. For dinner last night I cooked up some Italian Sausage, by frying the sausage in the spicy garlic oil. I cooked up some pasta then added the Grandma Angie’s tomato basil sauce.

I Mixed the cooked pasta, and the cooked sausage with the sauce, topped with a splash of the Diavolo hot sauce, and sprinkled with the Italian herb blend.  This meal was very easy to put together, a mere 10 minutes from jar to table. The meal tasted like it took hours to make and my family loved it. Just a warning though, my family like it hot, and with the spicy oil and the Diavolo sauce it was pretty spicy, but we loved it. My daughter went back for seconds, she enjoyed the meal too. 
The weekends are when I really cook. I cook and cook and cook. I try to prepare for the week (when I can). While checking out the Costantino's Kitchen website, I found quite of few recipes that I will have to make starting with this:



Grilled Steak Fries:

2 Russet Potatoes
2 Tablespoons Costantino’s Kitchen Mild Garlic Oil
1 teaspoon  Costantino’s Kitchen Tuscan Steak Rub

Sea Salt to taste

Slice potatoes into steak fries. Soak in a bowl of cool water for about 30 minutes. Drain water and dry potatoes well. Toss with garlic oil and spice rub. Place fries over the hot side of the grill and cook until browned and crisp on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Move the potatoes to the cool side of the grill, cover, and continue to grill until cooked through, about 5 to 10 minutes longer. Remove to a platter and sprinkle with sea salt.
This will be what I am making next.  It sure sounds different, and delicious.  And not that difficult to make. I will have to let you guys know how this turns out.

So if you are looking for tomato products, spices and oils for sauces or add to recipes I would recommend Costantino's Kitchen. I was very impressed with the quality of the products. And I am now a fan of Costantino's Kitchen for life! Give them a try you will become a fan too!
