RAGÚ: Classic Meatballs with Angel Hair Pasta
I’ve been craving homemade spaghetti for some time now and it finally happened this weekend. I only wish I had made it sooner!
Raise your hand if your mom always used @RAGU sauces for all her pasta dishes when you were growing up. 🙌 There were so many times when my mom would make pasta during a week night and notoriously made so much we would have spaghetti leftovers for breakfast. Imagine trying to stuff your face with spaghetti before heading to school in the morning. Those were the days! LOL! And I thank my mom because I grew up completely fed and full. Oddly enough, you would think my eating so much spaghetti as a kid would make me sick of it, but that is not true at all. To this day it's one of my favorite comfort foods!
This dish was inspired by the spaghetti my Mom used to make us when I was a child, prepared with RAGÚ sauce and angel hair pasta.
I’ve had this dish a million times. Ok maybe I’m exaggerating, but definitely somewhere close to that.
The flavor of the meatballs in RAGÚ's new deliciously thick and bold tomato sauce is just off the chart. Seriously, what’s not to love?!
You're probably wondering what the difference is between the RAGÚ Old World Style® (old sauce) and RAGÚ Homestyle Thick & Hearty Traditional Sauce (new sauce)?! Basically, RAGÚ Homestyle Thick & Hearty Traditional Sauce uses peeled, chopped and simmered ingredients. It's bolder, thicker, heartier and has no artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup. It’s made with real ingredients: tomato puree, diced tomatoes in puree, sugar, soybean oil, onions, salt, spices, dehydrated onions and garlic powder. Visit the RAGÚ website to learn more about their new line of RAGÚ Homestyle sauces.
This dish is so tasty, and better yet, so easy to make!
