As I was making dinner last night, I kept thinking to myself just how much I enjoy cooking for my family and having my kids help in the kitchen. But the best part is seeing everyone enjoying my food, even the dog 🙂 It’s#Saucesome!
When I am planning my weekly dinner menu, I have a few requirements… recipes that don’t have a lot of ingredients, recipes that don’t have a lot of steps, and recipes that are fast and easy to prepare. This One Pot Tomato and Seafood Pasta recipe fits the bill perfectly! Not only is simple to make and cooks entirely in one pot, it’s also easy to clean up. Who wants to spend an hour cleaning the kitchen after dinner?
I typically use pasta sauce recipes from scratch when making meals, but I also love having a few recipes in my repertoire that can be whipped up quickly, using a good jarred sauce, like Ragú®, for those crazy, busy nights when I need to get dinner on the table quickly. Ragú® is recognizing and celebrating everything that makes family mealtime Saucesome. From unique recipes to silly moments to crazy weeknights…it’s all Saucesome with the delicious help of Ragú® Sauce.
I’ve added my own personal touch to the Ragú® Easy One-Pot Pasta recipe. I added clams, shrimp, garlic and red pepper flakes for extra flavor, and used Ragú® Old World Style® TraditionalSauce, which has a rich texture and delicious taste that the whole family will love. Since our dog is a member of our family, we love to share our Saucesome meal with him.
This One Pot Tomato and Seafood Pasta is an easy weeknight dinner, yet special enough for a weekend. Less than 30 minutes and dinner is on the table! Buen provecho!
