Naples, FL (Vocus) May 14, 2010
Naples Tomato , a nationally recognized restaurant and local favorite in Naples, Florida, today announced the availability of its award-winning lasagna by mail order. Naples Tomato serves more than 30,000 lasagnas a year, making it the most popular dish at the restaurant. The New York Times said "Never will you feast on a better lasagna," and the dish was recently served at a Presidential reception in Naples.
Naples Tomato's award-winning lasagna laces delicate layers of homemade pasta with homemade sauce and a rich blend of ricotta impastata, fresh vegetables and herbs, and fresh garlic. The sauce is made from a secret combination of more than 20 ingredients, including premium meats, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh herbs and soffritto. The result is like a piece of exotic pastry, which stands up on the plate and where each layer is distinctive and complements the others.
Naples Tomato's chefs prepare the mail-order lasagnas to the exacting standards of the restaurant entrée. Every lasagna is prepared from scratch using the highest-quality ingredients. The lasagna arrives frozen; after thawing the lasagna, you just heat it in a preheated oven for 25 minutes and serve.
To order the lasagna, go to http://www.naplestomatostore.com . Each lasagna serves 4 (generous portions) or 6-8 (smaller portions), and includes sides of homemade sauce and Parmesan cheese. In the restaurant, the lasagna sells for $18 per slice. Each mail-order lasagna is priced at $78, which includes shipping and handling – or $19.50 per slice, only $1.50 more than the restaurant price.
"Our guests have long been asking us to offer the lasagna by mail,” said Jack Serfass, co-founder of Naples Tomato. "But first we had to make sure that the quality would be high and the price reasonable. Now, people can enjoy this favorite no matter where they live in the US. It makes a great meal for a family or a small casual dinner party, served with a salad, garlic bread and a great bottle of Chianti or Barolo. It couldn't be more convenient because it holds well in your freezer.”
Founded in 2005 in Naples, Florida, Naples Tomato is one of the most consistently booked restaurants in Naples, Florida. More than 300,000 guests have dined at the restaurant since it opened. Naples Tomato recently announced that it would offer franchises. The first franchised store will open in the Greenwich/Stamford, Connecticut area in Fall 2010.
