In an era where much is written about families trying to “get back to basics” and gather around the dinner table, a product has been introduced with the intent to assist those goals. The Romano/Angotti family proudly offers an age-old recipe for Italian peppers to help families create a simple, easy gourmet meal in five minutes or less. The company launched the gourmet toppings last week with a social media campaign including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and reviews by popular food bloggers across the country.
The creators of Rose Romano's Italian Gourmet Toppings emphasize that the product is not a sauce so much as a topping. The marinara featuring flavorful peppers should enhance the simple natural flavors of fish, chicken, eggs, beef and pasta. There are over 30 recipes featured on the site, and the Rose Romano’s Facebook page features ideas from some of their 1,500 followers using the toppings in inventive ways such as a dip for mozzarella sticks. The social media site also offers contests, special discount codes and the history of the family behind the gourmet toppings, while encouraging consumers to submit personal recipes and photos. The family-owned company emphasizes tradition, and management has designed a solid foundation for engagement with its customers via social media.
Two styles of Rose Romano's Italian Gourmet Toppings are available for purchase via the company website: http://www.roseromanos.com and at http://www.Amazon.com. Italian Peppers Marinara with Red Bell Peppers and Italian Peppers Marinara with Green Bell Peppers come in four sizes, are gluten/preservative free and only five calories per serving. The company seeks to offer product in local gourmet shops near their home in York, PA, and encompassing the Philadelphia area, and future plans call for stores to be stocked across the nation.
“After countless friends said, 'you ought to sell this!' I took their advice. Over time, I perfected the sauces and began giving samples to executive chefs who devoured them and asked for more,” founder, Dr. Angotti said.
“I came up with 30 recipes and ideas on how to use the Italian Peppers. It was important to me that people be able to prepare a quick meal, and each of these 30 recipes allows you to prepare the dish in five minutes or less,” Angotti explained. “My food is basic...They use sauces to complement and enhance their food, and not overpower it. And I wanted a Gourmet Topping that would be worthy of that tradition.”
Instructions for Rose Romano's Italian Gourmet Toppings boast such ease as 'open jar, heat the topping, serve with pasta, veggies, seafood and more...Buon Appetito!'
To date, the peppers have been featured on the popular lifestyle blogs, 5 Minutes for Mom and Mom Trends, as well as five top food blogs, A Spicy Perspective, Lynn's Kitchen Adventures, Mommy Hates Cooking, Chocolate & Carrots and Savoring the Thyme.
In addition to the social media availability and the company website, Rose Romano's Italian Gourmet Toppings can be reached at 800.330.4465 and info(at)roseromanos(dot)com.
