Several nights a week the kids and I are away from home until well past 6:00 pm.  Considering bedtimes range between 7:30 and 8 pm, I really need to get dinner on the table fast and have been relying on a handful of our favorite quick and easy recipes.

 

I’ve been on a sauteed mushroom kick lately and have been adding them to almost every dish I’ve made in the last couple of weeks.   The mushrooms and sausage really come together deliciously in this creamy pasta dish and is a perfect example of a fast recipe that my family loves.  In just a few minutes more than the time it takes to cook the pasta, we have a hearty and filling family meal.  This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ragu.  

 

pasta with white sauce

 

To save time in this recipe, I used the Ragu® Roasted Garlic Parmesan Sauce which is already packed with the flavors of garlic and parmesan cheese, so I did not have to spend additional time creating a white sauce from scratch or roasting garlic. (Plus, Ragu® is made with NO artificial flavors, colors or high fructose corn syrup.)  The Roasted Garlic Parmesan Sauce paired really well with the mushrooms, sausage and pasta, but I bet the Classic Alfredo Sauce would be just as tasty too!

 

 

Another family favorite pasta recipe using the Ragu® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is this Cheesy Penne with Meatballs I shared a few months ago.  If you want more mealtime inspiration, be sure to visit the Ragu® recipe page and browse around for ideas.
