Do you have a favorite family meal? Maybe one that has become a tradition over time? We have a Thursday night pasta night tradition at our house. All four of us rank pasta in our top 2-3 favorites and we do not discriminate when it comes to the type of pasta as long as it includes pasta and red sauce.

Our list of favorite pasta recipes range from Million Dollar Spaghetti to Lasagna Rolls. More recently I tried something new. I combined my love for anything Caprese with pasta and Ragu Traditional Sauce. Of course my family approved. Afterall, my Caprese Pasta Recipe includes pasta and red sauce.

Caprese Pasta Recipe; Made With Ragu Traditional Pasta Sauce
new recipe for our old family tradition, Thursday night pasta night.

The tradition brought from Italy to America in 1914 by Assunta Cantisano is that of a tomato sauce made with slowly simmered farm grown ingredients. From Assunta selling jars of tomato sauce from a neighborhood street in 1937 to Ragu selling jars of tomato sauce on the grocery store shelves in 2016 the commitment to high standards has not wavered.
