I love using fresh summer veggies in the summer in a lot of dishes I make. We only live a few miles from an amazing farmers market, I try to take the kids once a week during the summer. Summer squash and zucchini looked really good that day so I decided to make Summer Vegetable Baked Ziti that night for dinner. If you guys have follow me for some time you know a good pasta dish is a staple in my house bc I have a picky eater, well he loved this!
I love using my go to Ragu Homestyle pasta sauce to make quick and easy pasta dishes that I know my family will love!
Since the Ragu Homestyle is their thickest sauce it soaks into the pasta making for the perfect bite every time. Plus I love that they don’t use artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup. It tastes fresh and homemade just what I look for in pasta sauces. Best part I do not have to slave all day cooking it since Ragu pasta sauce has done that for me.
For those nights that run a little late with kids activities or extra homework I like to have a few go to meals on hand when things do not go as planned. Okay, so for those nights I just do not feel like cooking anything big either.
This quick and easy Bow Tie Pasta Alfredo is one of those go to meals I always have the ingredients on hand for. It can be easily made and on your dinner table in under 20 minutes which is sometimes all I have energy for.
It’s so creamy and filling for the while family that it can truly stand on it’s own but sometimes I’ll add in grilled chicken or shrimp. For some veggies I like to add some steamed broccoli to switch it up a little bit.
You could even use this sauce recipe for an amazingly tasty base for white pizza!
