Every year I try to have a stress-free holiday season, but despite my best efforts, the busy hub of activities overwhelms our family calendar! It’s tough enough to get our normal chores and day-to-day events in, so when you add in the bustle of shopping, holiday parties, special concerts and programs, it’s a wonder I ever get a home cooked meal on the table from Halloween night straight through New Years Eve!
Family time and home-cooked meals are weekly traditions important to me and my crew so I don’t like to sacrifice sit down dinners or quality kitchen time chats with my children during the holidays. That’s when I turn to some of my best go-to quick and easy recipes, many of which include Ragu® products! (Pasta dishes are definitely a family favorite!)
This week I created a simple Sundried Tomato and Sweet Basil Ravioli with Italian Sausage dish that was a true crowd pleaser. Everything I needed, I found at Kroger to whip up this tasty four-ingredient dish. My time in the kitchen was minimal, leaving me free to help the kids with homework, get ready for the upcoming holiday weekend and still have a hearty supper on the table before we had to head out to basketball practice. Now that’s magical!
Having ingredients on hand like Ragu® Pasta Sauces allows me to easily celebrate the magic at mealtime during the busy holiday season by giving me the freedom to create quick, delicious meals my whole family enjoys. In addition to the new recipe I’ve shared, we also love to make spaghetti, pasta Alfredo, lasagna, meatball sandwiches, rigatoni and even DIY pizzas with the wide variety of Ragu® pasta sauces. There’s a whole lot of inspiration for meal recipes on the Ragu® website, too, giving me even more holiday-time meal solutions to try!
Do you have a favorite recipe you create with Ragu® Pasta Sauces? How do you celebrate the magic at mealtime with your family during the holiday season?
