Italian food is often considered one of the most delicious cuisines in the world.

For those looking for a truly authentic experience, there is nothing like Italian cuisine served and consumed using the same dinnerware and flatware as the Italians themselves. The Vietri collection is as close as you can get to an authentic Italian dining experience in the comfort of your own home.

The Vietri Collection

The Vietri Collection is born from the passion of the Gravely sisters who discovered the exquisitely handcrafted Italian dinnerware that inspired the Vietri collection. Vietri, named after the town where their first pieces came from, is also a play on the words “three lives” in Italian, reflecting the three women who started the company. The first few pieces the sisters took home from Positano, Italy, were the genesis of the Campagna dinnerware collection that is still very popular to this day. Today, the Vietri collection covers a broad range of products that are handcrafted by artisans in hundreds of small factories located throughout Italy. Thirty years later, the company has maintained its tradition of celebrating heritage-style collections by adding a Tuscan charm to your Italian dining experience through the Vietri flatware collections. Each piece is delicately handcrafted, forged from high-quality steel, finely balanced, and has a distinctively luxurious weight. Being handcrafted, each piece is entirely unique, making them true works of art that give a distinct edge to the sumptuous food you serve.

 Vietri Dinnerware

Preparing sumptuous Italian food and serving it using exquisite Vietri dinnerware and flatware is perfect for surprise guests. With the slow-cooker baked ziti shared by TasteofHome.com, you can have one of the easiest-to-prepare yet the most mouth-watering Italian dishes you can pull off.

Ingredients:

  •     15 ounces of whole-milk ricotta cheese
  •     24 ounces of meatless pasta sauce
  •     One large egg, beaten
  •     One teaspoon dried basil
  •     ¼ cup water
  •     2 cups uncooked ziti
  •     2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  •     ¼ cup minced fresh basil
  •     ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  •     Grated Parmesan cheese  

 

Directions:  

  1.     Stir the ricotta cheese, basil, and egg in a small pasta bowl. Add red pepper flakes if desired. Set aside. Pour the meatless pasta sauce into a 5-quart slow cooker. Evenly place the pasta over the sauce. Pour water over the top. Drop heaping tablespoons of ricotta cheese over the pasta. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese right after.
  2.     Cover the slow cooker and cook on high setting until heated through and the pasta is tender. The cooking process typically takes two to two-and-a-half hours. Top with fresh basil. If desired, top with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes to taste. Serve immediately.

 

Slow-cooked pasta aside from ziti, such as penne, rigatoni, radiatore, or casarecce, are ideal pasta shapes that are also best when served using Italian Dinnerware from the Vietri collection.
