Quick and Easy Pasta: Simmered in Tradition {Contest}

February 8, 2016
Looking to make a quick and easy pasta recipe?  Look no further!!!
I love traditions!  Seriously, you guys!  If you’ve read my blog for more than a hot second you’d know that about me.  It’s awesome!  The thing about traditions, though, is that they can seem like such huge things and things that aren’t done very often.  Birthday brunch is only done twice a year (unless we celebrate birthday brunch with friends and family too).  Christmas tree hunting happens once a year.  Anniversary pictures happen once a year…  The list goes on and on.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the more simple traditions in life.  What things does my family do that my little man will look back on as he gets older and remember fondly?  Am I viewing those as traditions that matter?  Can something as simple as pasta sauce be viewed as a tradition?

One aspect of life that I’m realizing is going to hopefully be something Caleb looks back on fondly is Sunday lunches.  There’s something so special about coming home from a long morning at church after spending time with the people we love and our wonderful Savior and enjoying a meal together.  Sometimes the meal is simply our family and sometimes it includes loved ones but it’s always a time of connecting, talking about our faith, and growing closer with one another.

Although I want to make this time special I don’t want to take too long to get to the table once we get home.  I mean, really, it’s no good to come home from church and just get hangry.  You know what I mean?  That’s where pasta sauce comes into the picture.  How wonderful is it to be able to pop open a jar of Ragu, add some tasty goodness to the already great sauce and have lunch ready within fifteen minutes?  Pretty stinking wonderful.
