I love to cook delicious homestyle meals for my family. Sitting down together in the evening to talk about our day and enjoying a savory dinner together is one of the many ways that we connect as a family. It’s also how I was raised as a child. Every day, no matter how busy our day was, my mother never failed to take the time to sit down and listen to all of the things that I felt were so important growing up. She loved to cook wonderful meals almost always from scratch and really took pride in her amazing cooking skills. She rarely followed a recipe exactly and yet like magic, everything she made tasted wonderful.
This is one tradition that I want to pass down to my own children in the hopes that they will always love our family’s homestyle cooking.
Today I want to share a yummy recipe that is both easy to prepare, even on a busy weeknight, yet tastes like you’ve been working on it all day. My cheesy supreme stuffed pasta shells is a perfect example of I prepare a delicious homestyle recipe with the help of Ragu.
