Old & New Family Ragu Recipes Simmer In Traditions!
One of the main things I remember growing up is my Mom using Ragu Pasta Sauce for our spaghetti’s, lasagna, stuffed noodles. Italian meals are a tradition of our family, even though we’re not Italian. We’ve always #SimmerInTraditions Growing up lasagna has always been a family favorite, I learned how to make it just like my mom. I love to make lasagna and Ragu is the best choice for us the flavor is amazing, you don’t need to add really any seasonings to doctor it up. It comes ready for use, just add meat, pasta and cheeses!
I have since went low carb, so making a normal lasagna is out of the question! So I had to come up with an awesome way to make a grain free noodle so I can still make lasagna! Guess what? I did! 🙂
You cannot make a good lasagna without an Excellent Ragu Pasta Sauce! I have learned this over the years, trying to do things differently. I still end right back up at the Ragu Shelf mesmerized by the amount of flavors. I always buy a couple different jars. This way I’m ready for anything!
To make this lasagna you’ll need:
- 1 Jar of Ragu Pasta Sauce (Saute’ed Onion & Garlic)
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- Noodle Recipe X’s 4 (you can use normal noodles if you can have grains)
- 1 Tub Ricotta ( had the big one )
- 1 c Parmesan Cheese (and sprinkle on layers)
- 2 tsp Parsley
- 2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tsp Onion Powder
- 1 egg
- Start by browning your ground beef, drain grease and add sauce and about 1 cup of water. Let it simmer on low for about an hour or so, while you prep your other stuff should be good.
- Start making the noodles which is super easy but take a few minutes to cook each layer. You can simply use regular lasagna noodles too, get them boiling if so.
- Make the filling by mixing all of the filling ingredients together until well combined and thoroughly mixed.
- Your sauce should be ready by now. You can start by using the same pan you cooked your noodles in, You can put sauce on the bottom of the pan.
- Put just a lil mozzarella on the sauce and then place a noodle on top.
- Spread a layer of ricotta mixture.
- Add some sauce spread it around, add cheese on top and just continue to repeat the layers until you have finished.
- Bake at 375 degrees until all melted and bubbly delicious!

Did you know that Ragu was created in a kitchen at home? Yep! Assunta Cantisano made this sauce and used fresh veggies from the garden. I just love that this product started out with a little kitchen and a big dream, I think it’s amazing! She sold the sauce from her front porch, to her neighbors and their neighbors. Anything is possible!
