Ragu Mom’s the Word on Dinner Dinner Party and Giveaway!


Recently I was given the opportunity to host 15 of my closest friends for a Ragu Mom’s the Word on Dinner Dinner Party! I was so excited to bring all of them together for a special night out- and even one drove 2 hours to join in the fun!

Special thanks to those who came: Stephany, Cortney, Jenny, Andrea, Jessica, Tiffany, Andrea, Bridgett, Amber, Becky, Celia, Becky, Erin, Kristin, Cherie and the loves of my life; M and J!

Everyone enjoyed great company and food, prepared by myself and my husband! We put our own twists on Ragu’s sauces and recipes which everyone loved!We had a great time in the kitchen together lovingly preparing dinner for our friends…

On the menu was:

Ragu Double Cheddar spicy sausage, diced tomatoes and green chili dip

My own recipe of Ragu Fondue

Ragu Super Vegetable Primavera chunky baked ziti with fresh buffalo mozzarella

Ragu Classic Alfredo penne chicken and vegetables

Ragu Beefy Mac & Double Cheddar (this was a HUGE hit with my 6 year-old!)

The recipes not highlighted will be featured in Friday’s post- so make sure you come back to get those! They’re awesome crowd pleasers, and SUPER easy to make.

We even went “green” and had Ragu Centerpieces! They were a cute conversation starter- and a great way to recycle the jars used for the party:

And of course, no one could go away empty handed! M put together all of the gift baskets that included a jar of one of Ragu’s amazing sauces- and was so proud of herself! She even insisted upon handing them out to everyone.

I would love for one of my readers to host their own Ragu Mom’s the Word on Dinner- Dinner Party!

One lucky reader will win a $300 American Express Gift Certificate to fund their own party.
