Do you want to keep your food supply stocked with lots of great options for busy days? Meal prepping in advance has been a huge game changer for me for years and especially in the past 3 years as a busy wife and mother. This Tomato, Vegetable and Mushroom Ragu is extra delicious because of all the additional vegetables in there that just add to the depth of flavor. Plus, who doesn’t want to incorporate more veggies in their diet? Even picky eaters will gobble this up and not realize they are also getting a good portion of onions, celery, carrots, zucchini and herbs in their tomato sauce.
I probably won’t be telling you anything new when I mention that you can use it in countless ways – with pasta and a fresh grating of cheese for a simple, satisfying meal, add meatballs for a classic spaghetti dish, use it in Ziti, Lasagna, Chicken and Eggplant Parmesan, with tortellini and spinach, with pork and beef, as an addition to Borsch, Cabbage Rolls, Braised Cabbage and many other delicious meals. You can also add many other vegetables to this ragu to make it even more nutritious and flavorful, such as beets, bell peppers, eggplant, and parsnips.
