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 PERFECT.
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 Alfredo sauce! I highly recommend checking it out, because you may not go back to whatever sauce you were using before!
