Fired-Up Fettuccine Carbonara Bake Made With Ragú


The following post is sponsored by Ragú®

Put a fun new spin on a classic recipe and make a New Tra-Dish! This one comes from Chelsea over at Crafty Chelsea, who put a twist on Ragú’s Fettuccine Carbonara.

One of my favorite things to eat, hands down, is pasta. I
cook it at home all the time and even when we go out to eat I almost always
order pasta. I just think it’s that good. And my favorite pasta sauce is Ragú.
So when I had the chance to come up with my own spin on classic fettuccine
carbonara using Ragú
Classic Alfredo
, I absolutely jumped at the chance! It was a lot of fun to
experiment and come up with my very own New Tra-Dish. 

If you’ve ever had classic fettuccine carbonara, you know it
is pretty simple. I wanted to keep my recipe simple, too, but add a little
spice and change the way it’s served. I am a big fan of oven-finishes on my
pasta, so I topped my carbonara with extra cheese, bread crumbs, and bacon
before letting it get nice and bubbly for 15 minutes in the oven. It came out

I loved using the Ragú sauce as my base because it was
already creamy, cheesy, and delicious. The Ragú
Classic Alfredo
 sauce is definitely my go-to alfredo sauce, and it is good
both on its own or with a twist like this dish. My husband almost always adds
salt and pepper to his food, and he didn’t even want to when I used the Classic
 sauce! I highly recommend checking it out, because you may not
go back to whatever sauce you were using before!
