Enjoy a hearty, family-friendly dish simmered in tradition with the new Ragu Homestyle Pasta Sauce.
Hello Nutrition Adventurers! I hope you’ve had a great week. The weekend is almost here and I’m heading home to Indiana to visit family, which I’m super excited about. This post couldn’t have been timed more perfectly because today’s recipe is all about home-style cooking and family tradition.
While making pasta sauce from scratch sounds like a nice idea, it isn’t always practical. Life just gets a little cray sometimes. That’s why I’m all about making life simpler wherever possible and the new Ragu Homestyle Pasta Sauces are a real life/time-saver! Most importantly, the home-style flavor isn’t lost so you can feel good about using it in your family’s favorite pasta recipes like lasagna or spaghetti & meatballs. And hopefully this recipe will soon become a family favorite!
When it comes to tomato-based pasta sauce, don’t give me the weak, soupy sauces that run all over the place. A good red sauce should be thick enough to hug every last noodle, like this sauce does. The Ragu Homestyle sauces are their boldest flavors yet. The ingredients simmer together with a special blend of herbs (basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper) to layer and build flavor, just like Mom would do. There are no artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup here folks! Just the good stuff.Want a pasta sauce that hugs every last noodle?

With pasta dishes, the more veggies you can add the better! There’s two servings of vegetables in this recipe with the combination of the Ragu Homestyle sauce and the addition of zucchini, onions, and spinach. Pair this pasta dish with a simple side salad and you’ll be on your way to 3 servings of vegetables at one meal. High five to that!
One serving of Ragu Homestyle Thick & Hearty Roasted Garlic is just 90 calories per serving, 3 grams of fiber, and provides 10% of the daily value of Vitamin A. Add an extra boost of fiber by using whole-wheat rotini. On a gluten-free diet? Simply swap out with your favorite gluten-free pasta.
Once you’ve sauteed the zucchini and onions in a dutch oven, it’s time to add in the Ragu pasta sauce!
Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple minutes before carefully placing the seasoned cod filets in the pan. The filets will gently simmer in the hearty tomato sauce for 6-8 minutes, soaking up the delicious flavor.
Dish out the rotini between four bowls and top each with a cod filet before pouring the sauce & vegetables over top. If you’re feeling a little fancy, garnish with fresh parsley or basil. Voila! Dinner is served, my friends.
