Italiano Fondue

"Simple and tasty fondue made from Prego Italian Sauce, red wine and mozzarella cheese. A nice change of pace from the usual cheese fondues. Serve with thick chunks of Italian bread or garlic bread, meatballs, sliced cooked Italian pork sausage, breaded mozzarella sticks and /or whole mushrooms (or anything else you would like to dip in the Italian Sauce)."

  1. Fast, easy and delicious. I used Hunts Zesty & Spicy Spaghetti Sauce and Barefoot Zinfindel. Served with recipe #317207 for dipping and all I can say is YUM! Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
  2. Boy this is terrific! We dipped fresh mushrooms, zucchini, and peppers in this for a great lower-cal snack; I know it would be fantastic with bread or crouton dippers too. Great recipe - thanks for sharing it! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by Boomette
  3. I used spaghetti sauce (recipe#26217). It was so yummy. We ate it with bread cubes. Thanks Crafty Lady :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for July 2011
  4. This is very good and all the family liked it, but my DS thinks this is fine as a bread dipper but isn't real fondue. I followed the ingredients per recipe. I used a cheese garlic bread cut into cubes to dip and it was very good. Made for PAC Spring 2008


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours. I recently participated in my first RSC contest. I have definitely had a lot of fun since joining Recipezaar. Update - September 20, 2007 I am proud to announce that I have just been blessed with my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law have given me a beautiful little granddaughter. &nbsp;[URL=;t=f6fd3ae3.pbw][IMG][/IMG][/URL] Make Reservation Online Create your own visitor map *************************************************** [Reply]</p>
