I’ve been cooking so much more frequently lately. It makes me feel great inside to be able to put a home cooked meal in front of my family instead of packing up the car to eat out. Of course, there are nights when I’m so busy that I don’t have time for a lot of fuss.

It’s nights like those when I turn to this incredible (and incredibly easy to make) Ragú beef and spinach baked rotini.

One of the best parts about this simple and hearty meal is that you don’t have to boil the pasta. You will need to brown some beef and wilt your spinach beforehand but this doesn’t take long at all.

You can use the Ragú Sauce of your choice. For this dish I really love the hearty and flavorful Ragú Chunky Tomato, Garlic and Onion Sauce.
