BUITONI wants to know what inspires you to be creative in the kitchen when preparing and enjoying Italian cuisine. Share a photo and a few sentences about what inspires you and you could win a trip for two to Casa Buitoni in Italy to discover where true Italian masterpieces are created (full Rules and entry details can be found at

The Grand Prize winner will win a week’s vacation for two to Tuscany, Italy, which includes a two day trip to Casa Buitoni in Sansepolcro, Italy, $2,000 cash, a year’s supply of BUITONI products, a digital camera, car service to and from airports, and private tours around Italy.

Nine finalists will receive Tuscany-inspired BUITONI “Discover Your Dream Dinner” prize packages that include a year’s supply of BUITONI products. Additionally, each month 150 entrants will be randomly selected to receive a BUITONI™ calendar and VIP coupon. And everyone who enters will be a winner when they receive an exclusive recipe from Casa Buitoni via email.

“Casa Buitoni is an incredible place where we live and breathe our artisanal philosophy of food – taking the simplest, most healthful ingredients and artfully combining them for an extraordinary meal,” said Brigid Gilmore, Director of Marketing for BUITONI. “Our chefs in Italy are inspired daily by their beautiful surroundings at the Casa and they use this to create truly extraordinary Italian dishes brought to you by BUITONI.”

To help celebrate this rich history and tradition, BUITONI has added a new line of frozen meals for two to its already popular line of refrigerated Italian pastas and sauces. BUITONI Riserva meals deliver high quality, all-natural authentic Italian ingredients, like tender sweet Italian sausage, fresh roasted Portabello mushrooms, custom Ricotta, and imported Pecorino Romano. Time-honored culinary techniques bring out the integrity and flavor of these carefully selected ingredients. Premium pasta pillows are overstuffed, noodles are thin and delicate, and perfectly paired sauces enhance the natural flavors.
