Have you heard about the new Homestyle Sauce from Ragu?
Not only is this sauce delicious, but my jar of it even had basil seeds attached to it. How fun is that? It was attached so that you can start your own indoor herb garden. I thought that was such a clever idea.
Now, when I first started this blog the idea was to help me learn to cook and learn to love it, both of which have happened over the past 6 years. Yes, 6 years! This blog has been around for a long time now. My husband was complaining at the time that we always had pasta, sauce, and meat for dinner but different variations of pasta. He was so right, but now we have such different meals each night, we’ve come to find that we really miss our pasta.
I can make this Homestyle Cheesy Penne and guarantee every single person in my family will eat it and they will come back asking for seconds. Now, when you have a home full of picky eaters that says a lot about a meal. I made this in a 9×13 dish that should feed 8, my husband took half of the dish. HALF! I just looked at him with this, “are you serious?” look…and then he said, “it’s so good.” Now, he came back from seconds and I said, “NO!” That may make me mean or it may make me smart. I had fully intended on using this for two nights of dinner so that I didn’t have to cook again.
Smart, isn’t it?
I love the thought behind the new line of Homestyle sauces because we all have certain recipes that just feel like ‘home’ to us. For me, this is one of them. My mom made this all the time for us and it reminds me of being a kid again and being at home with my parents. Now, I get to share that same recipe and tradition with my own family.

I love Ragu sauces and it is my go to when I don’t make it from scratch. This recipe is really simple to make and would be great for busy nights. This would be a tasty way to mix up spaghetti night.

If there’s a Ragu sauce in my supermarket, I’d definitely get a jar… no make that a lot of jars.
I love that it has seeds on it that I can use to start a small garden. Of course Ragu sauces are the perfect combo for any pasta dishes and more.

Oh wow, this looks amazing. Ragu is one of my favorite brands, but I haven’t tried their new Homestyle sauces. Your pasta dish made my mouth water. I will add this to my grocery list.

You had me at “cheesy”! I love a good baked pasta with lots of cheesy goodness! I think I might whip up something like this fir dinner tonight! I know the hubby will approve!
I must admit that I am more of a Prego girl, but this recipe looks so great that I think I definitely need to give Ragu a try. Baked pasta is one of my favorite dishes, especially on chilly days like today. It is the perfect thing for moms to have in their recipe box!
