It’s officially fall and we are totally ready for it! Summer is fun and all but fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons! The kids went back to school a few weeks ago and I am honestly loving the down time. I love my kids but working from home and having them around sometimes doesn’t mix well.
My youngest is officially a second grader and the older minions are in fourth grade. Thankfully we’ve had no major meltdowns and mornings have been relatively smooth. I drive the kids to and from school and some days I do wish they rode the bus but all in all our schedule runs really well.
Fall in our house also means lots of after school activities. The kids are in multiple sports including soccer, hockey and dance and that means I am in meal planning mode. I love my Instant Pot and slow cooker but sometimes I don’t feel like dragging everything out of the cupboard. I also love taking advantage of fresh fall produce at my local farmers market. Squash appeared a few weeks ago and grabbed several spaghetti squash to have on hand.
Spaghetti squash is so great and such a versatile vegetable. I love using it in side dishes, sauteing it in butter and garlic is SO yummy. But, it can also be used for main dishes as well. When I’m looking for an easy and delicious fall dinner that my husband and kids will love I turn to New RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce. I love that it is made from 100% olive oil, contains no added sugar and can be purchased at any local super market. It’s the perfect addition to a heal
RAGÚ is family friendly and has been around for over 80 years and I always turn to RAGÚ sauce them when preparing my Italian dishes and healthy recipes. New RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce is the perfect addition to the RAGÚ family. It compliments the spaghetti squash with delicious taste and savory plump tomatoes, onions, garlic and spices. Add cheese and browned burger and your family will be asking for seconds! This recipe is also great if you are trying to cut back on carbs. If you’re a carb lover, a side of garlic bread and side salad would also be a perfect addition and wonderful weeknight dinner idea!
