Crispy Prosciutto and Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo – A quick dinner, in under 30 minutes using jarred alfredo sauce, roasted red peppers, and crisped prosciutto.I need a nap! Do you? I feel like I am always running from one thing to the next. But to be honest, I love it. I love the busyness of our little life. El’s social life is bustling. I’ve been paying more attention to mine. Work is slamming busy and that just excites me.
Sometimes, dinner gets short-changed in the hustle and bustle of our routine. Sometimes it’s take out or fast food. And sometimes it’s dinner help from the grocery store.
When getting help for dinner, I look for the three no’s: no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, and no high fructose corn syrup. Turn’s out Ragu Pasta Sauces all have the three no’s. I even learned that Ragu Pasta Sauces were created by a lady named Assunta Cantisano. She was an immigrant with an entrepreneurial spirit and she was a single mom. Outside the immigrant thing, she and I have some things in common.
When I was reading about Assunta’s story, I couldn’t help but think of my paternal great-grandmother. She was an Italian immigrant. Her husband died young, leaving her to raise their 5 children alone in New York. My great-grandmother passed her fortitude onto my Grandmother and that has been passed to me. Sure, I am not raising 5 kids in depression-era New York, but my life isn’t without it’s own unique challenges. One of the things I have been taught is that it is okay to ask for help. Hence, I ended up on the jarred sauce aisle of my grocery store.
