Win a $100 Visa Gift Card/Meal Makeover Kit and a Ragu Review!

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Ragú.

What exciting news to find Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Pasta Sauce now has two servings of veggies in every half cup.
We are massive pasta eaters in the Picky Palate house, so I was thrilled to try Ragu’s new pasta sauce with all the extra veggies packed in.

I found that the new formulation doesn’t actually have any different ingredients than the old formula. They’ve just packed more veggies into the formula to get to 2 servings of veggies per half cup (vs. 1 serving per half cup). The taste is the same great taste and they want to assure moms that the sauce they’re used to and have been feeding their families for years hasn’t changed.

We tried the Skillet Pasta and Beef Dinner with our new veggie packed Ragu and the kids went nuts for it. Before I added the sauce, I made sure I tried a spoon of each (the old and the new) and I enjoyed the chunkiness of the new sauce because I knew it was packed with lots of vegetables!

The dinner was a huge success and it literally took minutes to prepare. I love pulling out quick and simple recipes during the busy school week and that is exactly what Ragu helps us with. A great pasta sauce packed with lots of vegetables. Mom is happy and the kids are happy!

    I love to make Lemon Pasta, but if I’m really rushed I use a plain marinara jar sauce, add some fresh chopped tomato, garlic and a pinch more of Italian seasoning. Then add browned hamburger or grilled chicken (whichever I have) and sprinkle with cheese. Simple but tasty.

    I bought a jar of this Ragu last night, thanks to your post, and used it on my spaghetti dinner. It’s awesome! My boyfriend (35 years old) is like a little kid when it comes to vegetables so it was great to sneak in some veggies on him.

    Stuff pasta shells take a little longer, but the bonus is you can make two pans in the same amount of time, and freeze one for later!

    It is more of a snack than a meal…but it is pretty good that you might want to eat if for a whole meal! I spoon some pasta sauce onto a sliced bagel and top it with some veggies. Kinda like a “bagel bite” minus the cheese.

    For a super quick meal, I like to use giant homemade meatballs that I cook in large batches and freeze. I defrost a few, warm them in pasta sauce and toss a few on a hoagie bun with some mozzarella for quick meatball subs!

    Super in a Skillet is what we call it. It is hamburger mixed with a can of stewed tomatoes, diced green peppers and onions, mixed with macaroni. Top it all off with mozzarella cheese. Yum!

    Spaghetti and meatballs which only take about 30 minutes or less

    Well, this might sound like I’m being a wise-guy, but no. Really. I just cook up whatever pasta is in the big jar at the time (right now it’s bow ties) and top with Ragu and Parmesan cheese. Add some Texas toast and we’re all set!

    I have quite a few favorites, but any pasta matched with an olive oil and garlic sauce or one with a chicken broth base is fast and delicious!
