Villa Cappelli Review and Giveaway

To say I love Italian food is an understatement.  It's one of my favorite cuisines and I regularly enjoy it.  You cannot properly live life until you frequently indulge in homemade pasta made with the freshest cheeses and flavorful sauces available.  Don't forget the warm, crusty Italian bread dipped in olive oil either.  I'm sure that if I ever visit Italy I will come home five pounds heavier.  Why not go and treat yourself to some baked ziti or ravioli tonight?



Villa Cappelli allows you to learn to love food again and enjoy the delicious flavors extracted from nature.  The brand produces fabulous spices, spreads, conserves, olive oils, and pasta to excite your taste buds. The best part is that all of the products contain no artificial ingredients or GMO's.  If you're an Italian food lover or a budding chef, Villa Cappelli's products belong in your kitchen.  How about spreading a thick layer of cherry conserves on your morning toast? For dinner, whip up a pot of spaghetti that's tossed with olive oil and the brand's signature seasonings.   I'm sure it will be just fabulous.  The possibilities are endless as to what delicious dishes you can prepare thanks to Villa Cappelli.  All you need to do is get the bowls and plates ready.

I was sent a wonderful assortment of products to sample from Villa Cappelli.  I received a large bottle of olive oil, bell pepper conserve, Spaghettata seasoning, a jar of Italian sun-dried tomato spread, spicy Italian sun-dried tomato spread, and red onion conserve.  
Go ahead and wipe the drool from your screen, it's perfectly okay. 

Last night I was inspired to make Italian food for dinner.  I thought to myself what better way to incorporate true Italian flavors into my meal than by using my Villa Cappelli products? I racked my brain trying to figure out what the tastiest meal could be.  I finally settled on spaghetti and meatballs.  I tossed the cooked spaghetti with olive oil and the Spaghettata seasoning.  This seasoning is a lightly spiced, flavorful blend.  I knew it would add more personality to the pasta.  To give the meal more pizazz, I cut up pieces of Italian bread and spread a generous layer of the Italian sun-dried tomato spread on top.  Then, I drizzled a small amount of olive oil on top and topped with mozzarella cheese to bake in the oven.  How fabulous does that sound? As the bread cooked,  it smelled like Italy in my kitchen, or what I thought Italy might smell like.  Either way, I was ready to eat!

The meal was simply fabulous to say the least.  I had never tasted spaghetti with such flavor before.  It truly brought this long noodle to another dimension of deliciousness.  I'm usually not a fan of spicy foods, but I was able to handle the level of spice that the Spaghettata threw at me.  The olive oil had a wonderful rich flavor that left me wanting more.

Of course the true star of the show was my bread.  I took a bite and upon doing so, I was instantly fluent in Italian.  Nothing else could have beat how fantastic it was.  The sun-dried tomato spread had an intensely high profile of flavor that was out of this world.  When combining the spread with the olive oil and cheese, it was hard to just have one piece.  Okay, I had two.  I wanted three, but I had to enforce some kind of self control on myself.  That might have been the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

I was so satisfied with my meal and especially satisfied with how Villa Cappelli's products really brought an ordinary meal to another dimension.  I highly recommend using their items at your next party or get-together to create crowd pleasing meals and appetizers that everyone will love.  I'm already planning how to use them next!
