(Cook) – Chicken Florentine and Farfalle (Tell) – Anolon Advanced Bronze 5.25qt Sauteuse

I am just tickled to death to be one of the featured bloggers in Anolon’s Cook & Tell campaign.  Anolon has beautiful pieces of cookware with styles to suit everyone.  Seriously, they are gorgeous pieces.  Today, I’m sharing my review of the Anolon Advanced Bronze 5.25qt (11″) Sauteuse from the Advanced Bronze collection, and cooking up some Chicken Florentine and Farfalle for y’all!

Let’s just git to it, reckon?  About the pan -

The very first thing I noticed about the pan was it’s beauty and size.   The bronze collection is so, so pretty! I picked it because I felt it went with the rest of our rustic decor in our home, and I was right.   The 5.25qt and 11″ size of this pan is absolutely perfect.  It’s not so huge that you end up cooking too much, but instead, will feed a family 5 with a nice serving size for everybody.   It’s deep so that you’re spilling food out and it has a slightly domed, clear lid so you can see how things are cooking up.  I believe it’s break resistant as well.  Each handle has the silicone grips.  This makes it easy to hold so it doesn’t slip and so it doesn’t get too hot for you hands.  I won’t buy a pan without it.   What I noticed when cooking, was how evenly things cooked up.  I have had pans where, no matter where it’s at in the pan, only half will be done and you’re constantly flipping and using strategy as to how to turn and place it so that the rest gets done.  Not the case with this.  I didn’t move it all over the burner and I didn’t constantly flip and turn things. It just cooked right.

I’ve had the opportunity to try other pieces of this collection (which I’ll share later) but it gets 5 stars and two thumbs up from me and my husband.   You can’t go wrong with it. It’s high quality, durable, cooks well, and is just stunning to look at.  It will make you feel like a gourmet cook. for reals y’all.

Okie dokie, how ’bout we move on to the recipe?! This recipe is the ‘from scratch’ version of the Bertolli frozen meals.  We like to use their sauces for home cooked meals and save their frozen meals for days we’re on the run!

    I would cook gumbo this winter! And maybe a elk bourginon!

    Lisa says

    What wouldn’t I cook in this pan? It is the perfect size for my hamburger stroganoff recipe, or my chicken with noodles or just for sauteing any number of things. I would love this pan!

    Becky Gifford says

    I would cook everything in this pan. Seriously, everyday. I normally buy one deep sided,straight edged ‘fry’ pan every two years and it is my go to for cooking. I do also have an old , loved 8 quart club aluminum pot to boil spaghetti in!. I would love, love, love to add this as my new star pan for everyday. Beyond the perfect shape and size the double sided handles will help me lug it around. The single sided fry pan handle is getting a little difficult as I get closer to 50. -ugh-.

    But to be official… my first meal would be the filling for stuffed peppers.. with Quinoa instead of rice! you can also make cabbage rolls with it.

    I browsed the Anolon pages and liked the Anolon Advanced Bronze collection the best. It looked soft and sexy next to the other designs they offer. I was surprised the prices were actually in the range of affordable for this quality of product. And if you notice at the top of the page they have a 25% off coupon code. I have my eye on the pasta pot. I have never owned the pot with the colander right in it for cooking pasta… and I can us the pot to can jelly in my little jars!

    Nicholas S says

    The pan looks like the perfect size for a multitude of recipes! I guess I’d start by talking my sister-in-law
    into making me some of her delicious beef stroganoff and go from there.

    Chicken fried steak

    Joyce S says

    This pan is great! The first thing I would make in it is your chicken and farfalle recipe. I don’t know if I was more excited
    to have an opportunity to win part of the Bronze Collection or to taste the Chicken Florentine.

    mmm this recipe looks great…can’t wait to try it. This pan looks like the perfect size i need for my stroganoff which is always spilling over the sides when i add the noodles and try to mix the sauce all together…I need a bigger pan. thanks for this great giveaway.

    KAPP says

    I like the Chef Clad line…i love being able to have see-thru lids. None of the pots/pans i own have that feature.

    since hubby loves his traditional Guatemalan foods, rice and beans would cook up nicely in this pan.

    Dora J Crow says

    I love to cook big pans of chili or homemade spaghetti sauces or my favorite- lamb curry. You truly need an evenly heating pan for searing/browning the protein. I would use this pan for making large helpings of basmati or jasmine rice too. I have found a lg pan is better than a rice maker!

    Tonya says

    I can think of lots of things I’d use that pay for. Tonight it would be for pan roasted potatoes. The bronze is really pretty, and different so I think I’d choose those.

  26. 26

    JennieS says

    I would cook just about anything in this pan! lol!

    JennieS says

    And I’m kind of digging the 4-Quart Covered Dutch Oven that Anolon has on their site.

    Brandi says

    I believe, like most of the other people that commented, that I would make just about EVERYthing in this pan! It looks to be very durable, yet soft and sleek. The color is so pretty! Love the silicone handles as well. Thank you for the recipe! I have been wanting to try some new pasta recipes for my family and this sounds delicious! :) Thanks again, Lori!

    Brandi says

    After browsing the Anolon website, I think I realllllly love the Advanced Bronze set! It’s just so beautiful and not your usual black, silver, or colored cookware sets. Very unique! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    I could use this for most anything I cook. With two big boys to cook for it always takes a large size pan.
