The Perfect Valentine’s Day Date Night | Recipe Included

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to really prep and think about your perfect date night. For this one, we turn to one of our favorite brands…  Golden DoorSpa. The “good on the inside, good on the outside” theory of life rings very true at the Golden Door Spa and we definitely like to tap in for their advice whenever we can.  Imagine our happiness when we found out the Golden Door recently launched Sensational Winter Squash Tomato Sauce, just in time for a Valentine’s Day celebration, and that we scored a delicious Lasagna with Kale recipe! 

Okay, before you get cooking let’s take time to primp. One of our all time favorite, Holy Grail masks is the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque ($68 on sale for $51). The Golden Peel-A-Way Masque is made with actual gold, botanical extracts, and sugar enzymes that will leave your skin glowing! This is 15 minutes of luxury. Follow up with the new Golden Door Golden Face Oil ($60). The Oil is a luxurious blend yummy nourishing botanical oils that work to soften fine lines and wrinkles while a blend of essential oils tone, smooth and brighten skin revealing more a youthful appearance. It truly leaves skin looking radiant and who doesn’t want that for Valentine’s Day?

When you’re finished with your perfect primp time, it’s time to move on to the star of the evening (well beside you and your partner!)… Sensational Winter Squash and Tomato Lasagna with Kale! This is a healthy, yet yummy, meal made with a base of Golden Door Sensational Winter Squash and Tomato Sauce ($12) that is made in small batches with ingredients that are farmed right at Golden Door!

Sensational Winter Squash and Tomato Lasagna with Kale

24 oz jar of Sensational Winter Squash and Tomato Sauce
4 tablespoons olive oil
9 whole-wheat lasagna noodles (about 8 oz.)
1 container (15 oz.) part-skim-milk ricotta cheese
1 egg
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1-pound Tuscan kale
1 tsp. each salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbs. lemon zest

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly coat a 2-quart baking dish with olive oil and set aside.

Step 2 - Cook lasagna noodles until al dente according to package instructions. Rinse under cold water until cool. Lay the cooked pasta flat and set aside.

Step 3 - In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, egg, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 4 - Spread a light layer of the Golden Door Sensational Winter Squash and Tomato Sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 3 to 4 lasagna noodles.

Step 5 - Layer one-third of the remaining tomato sauce over the lasagna noodles and then layer half of the ricotta mixture. Layer half of the kale over the ricotta and then spread one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat this pattern: noodles, sauce, ricotta cheese, kale and mozzarella cheese. Add a final layer of lasagna noodles and then add the remaining tomato sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese.

Step 6 - Bake lasagna for about 45 minutes or until the top cheese is melted and golden.

Step 7 - Remove from oven; let sit for about 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Step 8 – Have an amazing evening!
