I don’t often by jarred pasta sauces. I know they’re huge time-savers, and for awhile, when I was single and living with my sister Kendra, I did buy them on occasion. But then I got out of the habit–And I really don’t know why. It’s not like I make my own pasta sauces on a regular basis. But I received a free jar of Ragu from Influenster, and figured I’d give them another shot.
I used it in making this Cheesy Baked Rotini.
I’ve made this several times in the past, but unless you add meat to it, the base recipe is rather bland. I figured adding marinara would help there.
Which it did. I also meant to add some diced cooked chicken to this, and completely forgot. Luckily the recipe only calls for a cup of tomato sauce, so I’ve got plenty left.
And since this is the gauge I go by as to whether or not it’s decent, the bambino ate his entire helping. Without complaint. So there’s that.
