Ragú® Recipe for a Good Start

Ragú® is teaming up with actress and mom Molly Ringwald to promote the Recipe for a Good Start Contest asking moms to share their recipes for a good start for a chance to win a $5,000 college scholarship. By visiting, you'll have a chance to submit your recipe for a good start in life and your original Ragú® recipe that has the family running to the dinner table! Three first prize winners will be awarded a family trip to New York City where they will compete in a nationally televised Ragú® Recipe Challenge for the chance to win the ultimate prize of a $5,000 college scholarship.

Ragú® offers moms hundreds of nutritious, convenient, delicious and affordable meal ideas- perfect for busy families on the go. From making sure the kids get their veggies (Ragú® red sauces contain more than a full serving of veggies in every half cup of sauce) to skip-a-step recipes like No Boiling Lasagna and No Frying Chicken Parmesan, Ragú® understands your hectic lifestyle and desire to feed your family quality meals at a great value.

I have been a Ragú® lover since I can remember. My favorite is/was their Super Vegetable Primavera Pasta Sauce. Huge zuccini chunks and other great veggies. Haven't been able to find it for about a year. Every grocery store I go to I try and find it. I love chunky Ragú® sauces! My 16 yr old on the other hand will only eat the Parmesan & Romano Pasta Sauce. I swear to you, these are our favorite sauces! I was thrilled to talk about my love for Ragú®. *grin*

Now, you'd think that I, being a lover of all things pasta, would have some fantastic recipe to submit. Well, you would be wrong. I'm a simple girl. Give me noodles and a boat load of Ragú® and I'm good to go. When I was a single mom in the mid 90s spaghetti was the staple in our house. I would literally eat it every day. My kids weren't forced to, but I loved it! I don't think my 18 yr old really ever recovered from the year of pasta!! We still have it at least once a week but my 16 yr old and I are the only ones who eat it with sauce. My 6 yr old only has butter and parmesan cheese. My 18 & 10 yr old prefer something else altogether. Well, that's more for us!

What about you? Do you have any fabulous recipes that include Ragú®? If so, head to and enter it to win a $5000 college scholarship. Trust me, if you have a recipe, it's worth entering it! I have one daughter in college right now (cha-ching) and another one going in just over a year (double cha-ching). Even if you have a young child, $5000 is a fantastic amount for the future of your child. And hey, a trip to NYC would be a blast! Have faith in yourself and your recipe. Come on, you know you want to enter! Do it!!
