Dinner time can be so hectic and when you forgot to plan it becomes even more stressful. However, if you keep a few key ingredients in your pantry as staple items, you can make either of these three ingredient dinners in no time.
Well the slow cooker baked pasta takes 3 hours but that is much less than a traditional crock pot meal and it comes together so easily you can do it after lunch and have it ready for dinner time. The bagel pizzas are even easier, just pop them in the oven and in 10 minutes you have dinner. You just need to have a few items on hand for these Three ingredient Dinners
Three Ingredient Dinners
- Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce ( any of their new Homestyle Thick and Hearty Flavors)
- 16 oz pasta or thin bagels
- Mozzarella cheese
- Fresh Basil (optional)
Slow Cooker Baked Pasta
Told you these were simple. For the Slow cooker baked Pasta Easy three ingredient dinner, you simply need to spray your crock pot or use a liner. (I prefer the liner for easy clean up).
Rinse your pasta and add it to your Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce These new Ragu Flavors are their thickest sauce– you can tell because it hugs the pasta
The flavors are bold because we peel, chop and simmer our ingredients and use a special blend of herbs (basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper) to layer and build the flavor. Just like homemade pasta sauce. Also important is Rago does not use artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup
Add your cheese and and additional water that you swirled in your jar Ragu Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce and pour it over the pasta.
Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until pasta is right tenderness. Serve with some more grated cheese. DO NOT Make this more than 4 hours ahead of time. I put mine on warm and then served it to the family after I took this photo and it turned into more of a lasagna. All the noodles sort of jelled together.
EASY PIZZA BAGELS
For the Pizza Bagel, simply layer some Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce onto a thin bagel. Add your mozzarella cheese, I used fresh for this recipe.
Top with some fresh basil if desired and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Ten minutes and these three ingredient dinners or after school snack is done.
Now when the kids ask what is for dinner, you have two easy three ingredient dinners on hand.
