Family dinners have always been an important part of my life. For as long as I can remember, we would sit down for dinner together every night at the table – talking and enjoying our mealĀ together. Even as we got older, we made sure to be home for dinner to sit down together as a family.
And sitting down for family dinner is something I plan to continue with my own family. Right now it’s tough with a two year old who has an attention span of ten seconds, but we still attempt to sit down together every night, even if it means giving him some books or crayons to keep him occupied while we eat our meal.
Ragu sauce is also about family traditions. ItĀ all started in 1914 when Assunata Cantisano came to America from Naples, Italy with little more than a delicious family recipe to her name.
Since life can get a little hectic, I’m always trying to find meals that are quick to make so no matter how busy we are, we still have time to sit down for our family dinner. And this 20 minute spinach tortellini bake is just that!
You can find the full, printable recipe at the end of the post, but here’s what you’ll need:
Ragu Traditional Pasta Sauce
Preheat oven to 350. Boil the tortellini according to the package.
Drain and pour pasta into a large baking dish. Mix with half a jar of Ragu pasta sauce.
Top with spinach and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 10 minutes. Broil for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese a little.
You can also add other veggies to the dish – a great way to sneak a few extra in! I’m already thinking I might try this with some zucchini!
