These upcoming food demonstrations will give you an opportunity to try our new improved recipe for our Italian Sausage Lasagna. We look forward to hearing your feedback, too!

You’ll enjoy the same great taste with lower sodium and fat. It’s made with chunks of spicy Italian sausage, in a savoury tomato sauce, hand layered fresh pasta and ricotta cheese. Topped with Mozzarella, parmesan and Romano cheeses.

Made with Canadian milk and wheat. Made with real ingredients, no added preservatives
High in protein and fibre, plus, you’ll get a good source of calcium and iron.

We make our pasta fresh and cook it al dente for a perfect bite. Our products are just like homemade – we use the same ingredients a home cook or restaurant chef would use.
We save you time and money since you couldn’t make this dish yourself for the same price.

We hope you enjoy our newly updated dish.

Our Favorite Wine & Entrée Pairings

Wine Pairings
Pairing the right type of wine with the right Zinetti lasagna is a great way to have a flavorful, enjoyable lunch or dinner with family and friends. We have some recommendations for some fantastic pairings that we’ve enjoyed over the years with our Zinetti family recipes.

For our full-flavored Meat Lasagna recipe, a great type of wine to complement it is a cabernet. Also referred to as cabernet sauvignon, this variety is often mixed with other grapes like shiraz and merlot. Some of the finest wines in California, Chile, France and Australia are using cabernet as their basic grape. Often served with red meat, this type of red wine tends to develop the rich currant, tomato and roasted pepper flavors as it ages. This allows you to pair it well with our Meat Lasagna without overpowering the dish.

Several types of wine go great with our Vegetarian Lasagna. One of our favorite pairings is a roussillon red. To bring out the flavors of the spinach and mushrooms in the lasagna, a dry Italian white wine would also pair well. A richer white, like the oak-aged chardonnay or viognier would be best if you prefer a more robust flavor pairing.

Lasagna and wine looks fantastic when they are presented on the table together. So when deciding to prepare lasagna, whether for yourself or for friends, make sure to choose the right type of wine for the right flavor of Zinetti lasagna. This will surely impress your guests and will make them enjoy the pairing even more.
