Chicken Fajita Penne @ragusauce #Ad

Chicken Fajita Penne

    I had the fortune of growing up in a culturally diverse household.  My father is from Spain and my mother is Italian so my siblings and I got to experience the best of both worlds when it came to cooking and culinary delights.

    We learned early on about the importance of family and heritage and the role that food played in instilling those values and bringing us closer together.  Ragu Pasta Sauce was a delicious part of all of my Mom’s recipes and it has become a staple in my own home as well.

    I’m loving the new Ragu Thick & Hearty Homestyle sauce!  It’s their thickest sauce ever and you can tell this right away because it wraps completely around every pasta dish.  The reason the flavors in these new Ragu sauces are so bold and tasty is that they simmer, chop, and peel their ingredients using a unique blend of herbs.  Imagine a flavorful mix of basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper with no artificial flavors or colors right at your fingertips!

    While I could never do justice to any of my mother’s Italian recipes, Ragu Homestyle has allowed me to add a unique spin to my own pasta dishes.  They are so good because they take the time to make sure their sauce is made right just like my mother and grandmother have always done.  There are no short cuts used to make this sauce which makes it truly homestyle and traditional.  Check out my Chicken Fajita Penne recipe below!

    Ragu is awesome. I grew up in a big Italian family with homemade sauce and you know what? Ragu is just as good as homemade.

  2. I grew up with Ragu and loved it. This looks like a good way to use it. It also looks like a “grown up” version of the product.

  3. I like the idea of creating a fajita style pasta dish and I have just brought some Quorn chicken pieces so this would be perfect. Ragu is great too.

  4. Yum this looks delicious! My mom always made homemade food growing up, so homestyle definitely means chunky and delicious to me! I love to find great shortcuts to use today in my own cooking.

  5. Catherine Sargent says

    This looks like a great dinner. Ragu is the only brand of sauce that we use.

  6. This sounds amazing!!! My kids love pasta for dinner, I didn’t realize they came out with a new Ragu sauce!! My kids would love this dinner!

  7. Oh that looks really good! I may make this tonight I couldn’t figure out what to make for dinner!

  8. I love using Ragu, it’s delicious and we use it all the time. This looks like an amazing meal though!

  9. I love keeping a can of Ragu nearby in my pantry. It makes weeknight meals so easy!

  10. Great recipe, thanks! I love Ragu and frequently use it for my spaghetti sauce 🙂

  11. I love that sauce precisely because it’s so nice and thick. It clings to the noodles!

  12. Mouth watering recipe. Penne pasta is my favorite. Will try Ragu sauce soon as it is looking better than many alternatives.

  13. Ragu is the only spaghetti sauce I ever get. Always the chunky kind. Homestyle would mean that it’s like something I’d make on my own at home. Looking forward to trying this to see if truly does fit the name.

  14. When I think about homestyle…I think about my Mom’s cooking always. So many great memories. I love to use Ragu sauce to make some of my own memories and my family loves it. I am looking at some of the recipes on the Ragu Recipe Page and I see some that I want to try.

  15. That looks amazing. Ragu sauce makes everything better. I have been eating Ragu since I was a kid.

  16. Mmmm. Pasta is my weakness. This does look good. I just buy whatever sauce is cheapest or I do love making my own.

  17. That Ragu Homestyle looks really tasty and thick. I hate a ‘wimpy’ pasta sauce. Homestyle, to me, means that you make something from fresh ingredients, the way your family likes it.

  18. We love pasta at our house! I haven’t tried Ragu Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic sauce yet, but it looks really delicious! Pinned your Chicken Fajita Penne recipe for later.

  19. Love pasta! I love fajitas too! Perfect combo! Must try this!

  20. Oh my goodness! This really looks tempting and delicious!

  21. Ann Bacciaglia says

    I am excited to try the Ragu Thick & Hearty Homestyle sauce. Ragu is my go to sauce brand.

  22. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    This sounds like the perfect meal for my husband and I! So yummy!

  23. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg this looks absolutely delicious!!!! Pasta and fajita?!?! Yum!I’m must give this recipe a try!!!!

  24. This looks absolutely delicious! I would never think to create a fajita pasta, but it’s genius. I will definitely be trying this asap.

  25. This looks yummy! I love the addition of the peppers! And I agree with you, there’s just something perfect about Ragu when I use it in my recipes!

  26. This sounds like all sort of delicious! I love Chicken Fajitas and it would be so much fun to combine them with Penne!

  27. Oh that looks like such an easy and yummy dish!! I think I’ll try making this soon! Thank you for the inspiration! Cheers!

  28. Julie Wood says

    This dish looks so yummy, and I love making Pasta with Ragu sauces. They taste so good.

  29. Jerry Marquardt says
