  One pot pasta puttanesca

if you haven’t noticed, i like things easy. one pot pasta inspired by and made with Ragú® Sauce is a dream come true for me. its easy, minimal clean up, hearty, delicious, can be made ahead, and my whole family loooooves it. it’s more than just awesome – it’s SAUCESOME. 

pasta dishes always bring us together – my kids love to help in the kitchen and its my go-to dish on sunday when we all are together as a family. as many of you know (i feel like i’m always talking about it) my hubby is not around much because of his residency, so sundays are a really special day for us because dad is here for dinner! its our sunday tradition to hang out in the kitchen cooking together and then enjoy our meal as a family. i truly cherish these times. we miss him so much during the other days of the week, so watching my kids laugh with their dad and create memories with him makes my heart fill with joy. from pasta to meatball subs we keep it simple and enjoy our time with each other in the kitchen – it is the best sunday tradition!

    I’m going to make this. Without the red pepper flakes. I’m going to use roasted sweet red peppers instead.
