GENDER REVEAL LASAGNA?!

Villa Italian Kitchen Invites Guests to Celebrate their Bundles of Joy with Boatloads of Cheese!

MORRISTOWN, NJ (January 22, 2018) – When it comes to announcing the gender of a new baby, Americans have seen everything from pink and blue cakes to balloons to explosions – well, almost everything! Joining in the fray, Villa Italian Kitchen, one of America’s favorite quick-service pizza brands, has announced the addition of an exciting new catering package to its robust lineup of mouthwatering menu items: the world’s first-ever Gender Reveal Lasagna! Available now, the Gender Reveal Lasagna Catering Package features one cheese lasagna with a secret pink or blue interior, a tray of Villa Italian Kitchen’s famed garlic rolls and a choice of either a garden, Caesar or Greek salad for just $139.99.

Each lasagna is made-to-order from pasta imported from Italy, a classic Italian Alfredo sauce, creamy ricotta cheese and melty mozzarella, making the gender reveal experience a delicious memory for new parents to cherish forever. The party package, which serves twelve, adds a fun twist to the ever-growing trend of gender reveal events. The Gender Reveal Lasagna is sure to be the talk of any party – once the new parents cut into the lasagna and reveal either pink or blue dyed cheese, everyone in attendance can celebrate the family’s new addition with a hearty meal!

“Creating the Gender Reveal Lasagna was so much fun,” said Stephanie Beamer, Division Vice President of Franchise and Catering, Villa Restaurant Group. “We think of our guests like family, and wanted to find a way to celebrate such a momentous occasion with them.
