Back to School Chaos

Back to school is always hectic for a teacher, but this year has taken it to a whole new level. I'm working at a different school, in a different grade level, with totally different hours. Ella started Pre-K & Livy still goes to Miss Jennie's every day. I'm in a carpool with friends & ended up on duty this week because Eric is out of town for work. I'm still coaching & had practice every day. It was seriously the perfect storm.

Thankfully, Ragu came to the rescue for dinner! Otherwise, my kids would have been eating drive thru every night & I'd have been eating Easy Mac for lunch every day. #notthattheresanythingwrongwiththat #nojudgmementhere

Ragu's new line of Homestyle Pasta Sauces are simmered in traditions that go back as far as back to school. They truly taste like my in-law's homemade sauce & I can definitely taste a touch of basil, oregano & fennel in each bite. I personally love the Thick & Hearty Meat Sauce flavor, but my husband prefers the Thick & Hearty Mushroom Sauce for something different!

Since it was just the kids & I at home this week, we used some store bought cheese tortellini, our Ragu Thick & Hearty Meat Sauce, homemade meatballs courtesy of my father in law and fresh mozzarella to create one delicious meal! I precooked the tortellini, heated the sauce, stirred everything, then topped it with slices of fresh mozzarella. Once it was thrown together, I baked it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 in our favorite skillet. It would be just as yummy if you didn't have meatballs though because the meat sauce flavor is excellent!

Be sure to check out their website to learn more about the new line of Ragu Homestyle sauces and find a taste of home! They have tons of recipes that are far more exciting than the one I threw together :)
