The food, the family, the mealtime traditions all make for a “Saucesome” experience. My family also enjoys when they get to try new and unique recipes I create like the one I’ll share below.

My family loves to eat anything that involves pasta and sauce: Chicken Alfredo, Lasagna, Spaghetti, Chicken Parmesan…I decided to change it up. I was asked to put a spin on the classic Ragú® Chicken Parmesan recipe. That’s just what I did. We decided to make Chicken Parm Lasagna.

Lasagna is a great meal to make with your family because it is easy to make. Your children can help you layer everything from dumping on the sauce and sprinkling on the cheese and meat to laying down the noodles. Use this to teach your kids not only about cooking but also about patterns! My kids helped me eat the extra noodles.

Dinner is an important time of day that should be enjoyed bonding with family. No electronics, everyone together, lots of socializing. Make a big meal, talk about your day, get a little messy, and laugh a little. My kids definitely take care of the getting messy part and I take care of making everyone laugh. Check out their Saucesome ‘staches.

Chicken Parm Lasagna Saucesome DinnerWhat do you talk about at the table with your family? We talk about work or things that went on at the house, different exciting things we saw or experienced, what fun we are going to have after dinner (last night we all tried out our new firepit and ate s’mores!)

How do you make your mealtimes “Saucesome”? Do you cook with your family? Do you talk about your day? Do you goof around? Do you have any mealtime traditions?
