“The Comfort of Spaghetti & Meatballs”

When my family gets together for dinner it’s more than just a time to enjoy the food in front of us. Dinnertime around the table this is tradition we have done since my daughter was born. It’s a time that we all can be together without the distractions of the world and just enjoy each others company.  Need time for me has become a time that I can really just sit back and relish in the beautiful family I am a part of. I enjoy hearing my daughter tell me different part about her school day, just as much as I enjoy hearing the hilarious quips my husband ads to the conversations.

As much as I look forward to the meal time around the table, sometimes I don’t look forward to preparing a meal that takes an hour of my time or more.  Some nights, so I look forward to the family time I just don’t have the energy to come up with a five course, five-star cuisine. Actually, who does?

One of our favorite go to meals is the classic spaghetti and meatballs. It with some bread and a fresh vegetable this is the perfect meal for a busy family that still wants to concentrate on eating around the table. Ragu’ is the pasta sauce we always have on hand, and thanks to them they help keep my family mealtime a number one priority with the ease of popping open a jar I know everyone will love.

My daughter loves Ragu’ for its taste, but I love it. With 11 tomatoes in every jar, Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is our richest, thickest recipe* ever!​

This week around the dinner table I learned that my first grade daughter thinks that she has a boyfriend, that my husband has started a new workout routine, despite him starting a new one last week and the week before that, and I’ve also learned how much everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs.  It’s the simple things that make my life complete, and Ragu’ gives me a hand when I’m a little bit too busy to make a intensely involved dinner.   Thanks to Ragu, at dinner time I can concentrate on what’s really important, not the dinner, but my family.  Visit for additional delicious recipes, and see if you can find a good spaghetti and meatballs for your family to enjoy!
