Chicken Tenders Parmesan

Can we talk back to school and hectic schedules for a minute? Anyone else just shudder a tad when they look at their calendar? Every single mom I talk to is busy, busy, busy and frustration around dinnertime seems to be one of the most common denominators.

I’ve vowed this school year to keep my pantry better supplied to aid in easy dinner preparation. My goal is not resorting to ordering pizza during the week due to the fact that dinner just didn’t happen in time.

Last week my family loaded into the car and we headed to Costco. Don’t you just love Costco? We sure do! I knew I could keep my kids (and husband) occupied by sampling yummy food throughout the store, that’s always a winner in my book! They also willingly came along because we usually get a treat at the snack bar when we’ve finished our shopping. Mom had a mission … stock the pantry!

I bought essentials such as rice, spices, condiments, pasta and Ragu® Old World Style Traditional Sauce.  Ragu® Old World Style Traditional Sauce is an item I’ve been purchasing for years, as it tastes great. BONUS, there are 2 servings of veggies in every 1/2 cup of sauce, which is awesome because getting veggies into my kids isn’t easy.

Costco sells Ragu® Old World Style Traditional Sauce in a convenient 3-pack. Each jar is 45 oz. which means I’ll have plenty on hand whether I’m feeding 2 kids or 12 (and yes, that happens quite often). I’ve mentioned before we have a large family with kids ranging in age from almost thirty years old to a preschooler.

Normal dinners in our house include just the younger kids, but on any given night I could wind up with some of the older kids and they always bring friends. Having plenty of Ragu® Old World Style Traditional Sauce in the pantry means I can easily whip up a large pot of spaghetti or a big pan of baked ziti.

Family dinner at home is a tradition I want my kids to remember! Using Ragu® Old World Style Traditional Sauce in recipes is ideal since it has a longstanding tradition of delicious taste and quality.
