Yesterday night, it was decided to have spaghetti & meatballs for dinner. I cooked up myself some whole wheat spaghetti, vegetarian style meat balls, and this Organic Ragu Garden Veggie Pasta Sauce to have. I don’t always buy organic, but whenever I can, I like to!
The nutritional facts were pretty good. For a half cup serving, there was 2.5 grams of fat and 80 calories. The sodium level was a tad high, at 480 mg, and the sugar content was a bit high as well, at 8 grams. However, on the front of the jar, it says that there is “MORE Than a Full Serving of VEGGIES in Every 1/2 Cup of Pasta Sauce”, so that was something I certainly liked.
I cooked it in a small saucepan on the stove, separate from any thing else, as I didn’t want to effect the taste. I noticed it wasn’t super thick, but not overly liquidy either. It actually had a nice consistency to it. It was certainly a sweeter sauce, but wonderfully spiced, with a bit of parsley flavor. It was also a bit salty, but I feel as if most pasta sauces are.
Overall, a great pasta sauce. I would totally eat this again. And, when I paired it with my the meatballs, it was SO good! Versatile, and delicious. Don’t tell, but I think this one tasted better than my mom’s homemade sauce I used to eat when I was a kid! =P 4 stars
What’s your favorite thing to put on pasta? I like mine with sauce, veggies, and some parmesan cheese!
1/2 cup is 80 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

I saw this in the store and wondered if it was any good. Are the onions crunchy? I wanted to try it, but my husband is a no-go when it comes to raw or crunchy onions…hehe
I dont think there was actually any onion peices! It wasnt chunky really at all! 🙂
is it chock full of chunky veggies? I often add diced tomatoes to my pasta sauce. I tend to like Ragu cause it’s thick if you buy the chunky ones and is pretty healthy.
nah, it wasn’t super chunky. It was hearty, but no bumps or veggies that I was aware of. But thats a good idea, adding diced tomatoes!
YUMMMMMM!!! I am eating pasta sauce right now! hope you are doing well sugar <3
