6 Month Supply of Ragu Pasta Sauce & Robin Miller Cookbook Giveaway!

Ragu Sweet Tomato Basil

No funny titles.  No sarcastic wisecracks. This is a serious post. Seriously….AWESOME!

Ok,  return to sober tone.

Money is tight.  Everywhere.  There appear to be a lot of very smart people whom I am inclined to trust, trying to solve this problem. But all of them are telling us that things are not going to improve overnight.  So until then (and in all likelihood for many years after), in many families, the buck stops with Mama. Big business seems finally hip to the fact that Mama makes the majority of the financial decisions, big and small.  Sure we are the ones researching and choosing Jayden and Maddy’s See Kai Run shoes, but we’re also the ones with the last word on vacation planning and automobile purchases.

Big purchases come along every once and a while, but every day we make little choices in the grocery store about what to put on our tables to feed our families.  Choices that affect not only our health but also our bank accounts.  It’s nice when we can make decisions that impact both in a positive way.

So maybe it’s time to take a second look at Ragu pasta sauces.  I have always preferred Ragu on my raviolis.  You can ask my mom. Ever since I was little raviolis have been my favorite food.  And I always liked the smooth texture and comforting flavor of Ragu with raviolis. Always.  As I wrote last week, I was recently invited to see Robin Miller of the Food Network’s popular show “Quick Fix Meals,” demo and shoot recipes created with Ragu’s new varieties of Old World Style sauce: Sweet Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce and Margherita Pasta Sauce. Tell me that they don’t sound good.  I got to interview Robin and ask her a few questions about cooking for toddlers (check out my post about raising adventurous eaters), and I also learned some kind of surprising things about Ragu that I’m going to share with you right now:

  • Ragu red sauces contain more than a full serving of vegetables in every half cup of pasta sauce.
  • Ragu red sauces are all natural and contain no artificial additives or preservatives.
  • Ragu red sauces are a good source of Vitamins A and C, contain lycopene, and have no cholesterol or trans fat.
  • Ragu pasta sauce is available at a suggested retail price of $2.34 for a 26 oz jar.  Probably more in New York. But that’s not Ragu’s fault.

Check out Ragu.com for budget-friendly recipes using Ragu and money-saving tips for eating well on a budget.

And thanks to the amazing people at Ragu, one Mama’s grocery shopping budget is going to get a little bit easier this year!  One lucky Babies Gotta Have It reader is going to win a Six Month Supply of Ragu Pasta Sauce and a copy of Robin Miller’s cookbook, “Robin to the Rescue: Quick and Simple Recipes for Delicious Home Cooking.” Like I said, seriously…AWESOME!

To Enter the Ragu Giveaway:

After my baby called Larry the Cable guy the last time she did a drawing, we have decided to take a little vacation from her choosing the winner. Random.org is in no way as cute and unpredictable as my baby, but it is much more efficient and does not use any pieces of paper, even recycled ones. I am sure you will understand. Thanks for entering!

UPDATE! Now you have two chances to win this great prize!  After you enter here…take a trip to Skimbaco the Lifestyle, meet the amazing Katja, and enter to win 6 months worth of Ragu there too!

UPDATE #2!  We have a winner.
“Result:  61″

Congratulations Shirley! Enjoy your cookbook and Ragu Pasta Sauce!

And may I say, so many of you mentioned the Spaghetti and Meatballs recipe that I decided to check it out…and it’s delicious.  So simple and quick.  Cooking the meatballs in the sauce instead of in a frying pan in oil makes them so moist and delicious!  My toddler loves them and I highly recommend them!

    I would love to try the DOUBLE CHEDDAR BACON MASHED POTATOES. It sounds so good and easy to make. We are getting tired of the same old mashed potatoes and this would give it a whole new flavor. Ragu Chedder Cheese sauce is always good and with the added bacon we are going to enjoy this dish. Thank you so much!

    I’d make Mama’s Awesome Meat Sauce. Why?? Because it’s EASY and AWESOME, and because it only takes 15 minutes. :)

    I too LOVE Ragu, to me it’s pretty much the best sauce ever.

    I vote for MAMA’S BEST EVER SPAGHETTI & MEATBALLS! It is a classic favorite in our house to have spaghetti and meatballs, but I always think it’s just too much trouble to make those meatballs myself… Well, except for the time I tried soy-balls, but my husband wasn’t fooled! But this recipe anly has 5 ingredients. I could do that! I love it because it would be quick and wouldn’t break the family budget. Thanks for this great recipe, Ragu!

    I want to try the Grilled Steak with Red Tomato Rice. Not only does the picture of this look good, but it’s time to get the grill ready for summer cooking. I love cooking on the grill during the summer for my family and friends, and have a feeling they would all enjoy this recipe!!!

    Naturally I went to the budget friendly recipes section, and would definitely try the Pasta Margherita. There is something about penne, sauce and Mozzarella that is so comforting. And So simple!
    For some reason, I didn’t realize how good Ragu is until I got it on sale. It is so good! Now it’s the only sauce I buy.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I would try the SLOPPY JOES ON BUNS only because I have never had sloppy joes where I do it myself. I had always bought the can already mixed. I think everything that you put together yourself tastes so much better. The unstuffed green peppers would be next but with the green peppers because I make them once a month.

    I printed up the recipe for the Meaty Ratatouille. I have been looking for a fabulous ratatouille recipe…my kids LOVE the Pixar movie (probably because my husband is the General manager of a large and scrumptious restaurant called The Grand Lux Cafe here in South Florida, so they realte to the whole “good food” philosophy), and I love trying new things, AND, I’m always trying to get my five kids to eat more vegetables!! So I have a ratatouille recipe from Kraftfoods.com, and I (of course) have the Thomas Keller recipe that inspired the presentation of the dish on the movie, but I liked the idea of adding the meat because my kids are primarily carnivores (hence the need for them to injest more GREEN)…and if there is meat involved, it’s more likely the veggies will not be scorned at. Since produce is very seasonal here…now I only have to wait for autumn to get some really prime zucchini and eggplant (and not the scriveled selections available at my local grocery store now).

    ITALIAN-STYLE SAUCY ROASTED POTATOES would be a quick and easy one dish meal by adding the ground meat. Throw together a salad and there you have it – a great meal in no time.

    I would definately try the Italian-Style Saucy Roast Potatoes. I’ve used Ragu for years…on pasta and to make pizza…but I’ve never tried it with anything else. And frankly, I’m sick’n'tired of the same old potatoes, so what could be better than my old pal Ragu…maybe in a new flavor!…and potatoes.

    Besides…I’d get to say “saucy” when I tell everyone what’s for dinner, and I like saying “saucy!”

    I’m going to sort out how to Twitter and I’ll get back to you for entry #2.

I would try the NO FRYING EGGPLANT PARMESAN because I love eggplant parmesan, but honestly hate the messing frying part and it soaks up the oil and sometimes it just looks like a nightmare. The Ragu version looked healthier and SO much easier! We love Ragu already at our house so I’m glad to have some new recipes to try and a huge supply of Ragu would be awesome with the cost of groceries rising so quickly these days!
