Easy One Pot Vegetarian Pizza Pasta Bake using Ragu Pasta Sauce! Dinner ready in 30 minutes!

One Pot Vegetarian Pizza Pasta Bake

I am leaving for home in less than 20 days! Eeeks I can’t believe it. I remember when we booked out tickets and I thought oh that’s so far, year end. And now it’s here. It’s like I blinked and we are into November. I am so excited to go home, like always. Even though both our parents visited us this year but going to India is a different thing altogether. I will get to meet all my friends and family and I can’t be more excited. I am going to spend my entire holiday in India and I couldn’t have asked for more!

These days I am not buying tons of groceries, because I won’t be here for a whole month. And that is kind of tough for a food blogger since my fridge and pantry is always overloaded with stuff. Also these days, I am drawn to comfort food. That happens with me, always! As soon as the it starts to get cooler, my body craves for comfort food and it’s even better if I can make it all in one pot like this Vegetarian Pizza Pasta Bake using Ragú® Pasta Sauce!

Do you know the history behind your favorite pasta sauce, Ragu? It’s actually quite inspiring! Ragu’s founder Assunta was an immigrant who started selling her homemade pasta sauce to her neighbors in 1937. By the 50s and 60s Ragu become a household name and since then the company honors Assunta’s high standards by using farm grown ingredients only. Their products are not only affordable but also have no artificial flavors and no high fructose corn syrup. I am really impressed by Ragu’s tradition and Assunta’s amazing story. Especially since I am an immigrant too, I can relate to it so much more. You can learn more about this inspiring story here!

To make this vegetarian pizza pasta bake, I used Ragú® Chunky Super Vegetable Primavera Pasta Sauce. It has chunks of real zucchini and carrots in it and considering how much I love my veggies, it’s obvious why I love it so much! This is a simple recipe, which is ready in 30 minutes. Can’t get easier than this, isn’t it?
