My kids love their pasta dishes and I am always trying to come up with a simple yet delicious meal that I can make in less than 30 minutes. Pretty much pasta dishes are my go to since I know all the kiddos will eat it. This Spinach and Mushroom Bow Tie Pasta that I whipped up the other night was a huge hit with the entire family. Even my picky eater that claims he hates spinach asked for seconds!
The biggest time saver for me to make a great pasta dish on those busy nights is the pasta sauce. These days I do not have the time to make a sauce from scratch so I turn to Ragu Pasta Sauce. Their new Homestyle Thick and Hearty sauces are just as great if not better than mine, since it tastes homemade.
The Ragu Homestyle pasta sauce is their thickest sauce so it hugs the pasta and has that all day simmered flavor anyone would love. The best part the Homestyle Thick and Hearty Ragu Pasta Sauce contains no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no high fructose corn syrup.
