When You Find a Flavor You Love- Embrace It
We love the bold flavor of this tasty recipe combination. Think full on saucy flavor with a special blend of herbs that are chopped and simmered down to build depth that equals perfection.
And that can’t be wrong.
RAGÚ® Homestyle sauce doesn’t use artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup. And that is awesome!
I have to admit–I love making sauce from scratch. But sometimes there is no time for it.
Homestyle Cooking – Easy Hot Sandwich Recipe
In our house, homestyle cooking refers to food made at home–many times from scratch. When we don’t have time for from scratch cooking, we use ingredients we have on hand to create shortcuts.
And that doesn’t make it any less homestyle. It just means we’re saving some time, because goodness knows time is precious and we all lead super busy lives.
Don’t Panic, the Sauce is in the Sandwich!
