This recipe calls for simple ingredients, including Bertolli Riserva Marinara sauce!

Bertolli Riserva Marinara

If you remember a few weeks back, I posted a recipe for Baked Spaghetti Cups using Bertolli’s Riserva Balsamic Vinegar & Caramelized Onions. This product was amazing, so I had to try another flavor and another recipe. This time I used the Bertolli Riserva Marinara sauce in the recipe and on the side as a dip. It is really good!

For this recipe, spray and line the bottom of a bundt pan with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. In a mixing bowl, cut up 4 cans of mini biscuits (or make your own) and pour 1/3 of the jar of Bertolli Riserva marinara sauce over the biscuits. You’ll then add 1 cup of mozzarella and 1 cup of parmesan to the bowl (not pictured).

Take a heaping tablespoon-full of Italian Seasoning and toss that in as well and combine all ingredients with a large mixing spoon. Evenly scoop the monkey bread around in the bundt pan and sprinkle another cup of mozzarella and parmesan on the top. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.

Separate the monkey bread from the side of the bunt pan with a knife and turn it over onto a large platter or plate. heat up some marinara sauce in a small ramekin, top with parmesan cheese and place it in the middle of the monkey bread. All people have to do now is tear off pieces, dip into the sauce and enjoy!
