Hey guys!! So I know you enjoying summer, the kids just got out of school and it’s time to slow down for summer! But before you know it, quicker than a blink of an eye summer will be coming to an end and school will be starting back up.
Now I find myself browsing Pinterest while hanging out by the pool looking for easy dinners to get me through that back to school rush. Those nights where you are still trying to get into the swing of a new school year call for easy dinners that everyone will love. So I love to start stock piling recipes and filling my freezer now!
When I was doing my grocery shopping at Kroger I spotted this new RAGU Homestyle Sauce. It looked sooo delicious! I am a jarred sauce girl myself, you won’t catch me breaking my neck in the kitchen to make sauce when there are some fabulous jarred sauces out there.
RAGU is my go to spaghetti sauce. I grew up with it, my family uses it, we love it. I could not wait to try their new Homestyle sauce which boasts bold flavors and a thick and hearty texture that will just cling to your pasta. I am all for a thick sauce!
Even though you are taking a kitchen shortcut, no one will suspect because RAGU Homestyle has ingredients that are peeled chopped and simmered to a perfect made-from-scratch taste. I don’t have time to do that myself especially with the hustle and bustle of a new school year so I am loving this new sauce.
Now one of my most favorite things about all RAGU red sauce including their new Homestyle sauce is they contain no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and no high-fructose corn syrup. This is super important to me since my son has a red dye allergy.
This Homestyle sauce is going to be your answer to a great tasting meal that you can make in minutes on those busy school nights.
I wanted to test this new sauce out but in the most traditional sense. So here is a super easy recipe you can throw in the crock pot in the morning and be ready for dinner whenever you need!
So my family likes their spaghetti meaty (I live with boys, what do I expect lol) so this sauce has triple the meat and cooks in the slow cooker, perfect!!!
You just put a pound of stew beef, a pound of brown ground (whoa say that three times fast!) and 2 jars of RAGU Homestyle Meat Sauce.
- 1 pound stew beef
- 1 pound ground beef browned and drained
- 2 jars RAGU Homestyle Meat Sauce
- Place all ingredients in slowcooker.
- Cook on low 8 hours, high 4-6.
- Serve over pasta and enjoy
- Freeze leftovers for another night!
That’s it! Let it simmer all day and you have got yourself a thick, rich, meaty sauce perfect for topping some penne or ziti when you are ready for dinner.
The sauce is fabulous, it is so thick and rich, you can see it right in the jar, it is fabulous!
I know I will be stocking my pantry with all the varieties of RAGU Homestyle to get me through this upcoming busy back to school time!
