Italian Food That Is Drool Worthy

I love Italian food, the family loves Italian food too.  It’s one of those make everyone happy things!

Pasta is cheap…add a good sauce and you are rockin’ & rollin’There are so many things you can do with a good sauce.  You can make spaghetti, lasagna, a pasta bake, pizza….the list goes on and on.  It’s alllll good!


Ragu has just introduced two new flavors of the Old World Style sauces!

  • Sweet Tomato Basil, a smooth blend of Tomato and Basil
  • Margherita, a delicious mix of Tomatoes, Pizza Seasoning and Mozzarella Cheese

Thanks to Mom Central and Ragu I was able to giv margh e both new flavors a try!

The Ragu website is loaded with recipes to use with the new flavors so not only did I get to try a new flavor, I also got to test out a new recipe on the family….double score!

Up Side Down Deep Dish For the Sweet Tomato Basil sauce we had the Up Side Down Deep Dish Pizza!  The recipe calls for Spinach or Broccoli and we chose the spinach only for this dish.  This recipe was definitely a winner in my home.  Everyone thought it was delish!  I’m using the image from the website because I spent a few days with out batteries…YIKES!  Isn’t it so yummy looking?  Oh yea….definitely making this again!  I think next time I will use my own recipe and make the pizza dough instead of using frozen.  That way I can flavor the crust up like we normally do.

Pasta For the Margherita I chose to make the Pasta Margherita.  This is a very simple recipe that is sure to be a hit in other homes as it was in mine.  If your kids love Pizza they will surely love this pasta dish.  Cheap, Quick, Easy and Tastes good…all the important features of a good meal!  I’m sure there are many add ins you could do on this and make it to suit your family.  I’m thinking Olives next time????? Oh and yea…I stole the pic here too!  Hey, I have batteries now…but that food is long gone!

Over all…I have to say this sauce was great.  I liked both flavors a lot and so did the family.  I think if I had to choose a favorite I would have to choose the Margherita.  Mmmmmmm…………………………………

For you moms with picky eaters…did you know there is more than a full serving of veggies in every 1/2 cup of sauce??  Sauce those kids up mama!

You can find the recipes I used plus a ton more on the Ragu Website.  The next recipe I try is going to be the Slow Cooker Spinach Lasagna.

  1. I did not realize Ragu had so many different sauces. I use the pizza sauce all the time but have not tried the pasta sauces. I have just added Ragu to my grocery list so I can try some of the recipes on the website. I think I will pick up a few different flavors to have on hand. We love stuffed peppers and I see they have a really easy slow cooker recipe for those. yum!
