Getting your kids to eat comfort food meals the whole family will enjoy can be a tough job but it doesn't have to be. We gave 50 CafeMom members a free coupon for Ragu pasta sauce and a Target gift card and asked them to make comfort food meals that the whole family would enjoy. By starting with Ragu and other ingredients that your family loves, you can make a meal for everyone!

Well they both love cheese and meat so I know that if I incorporate anything with the two it will usually be a hit with one of them lol  I always try to find nice recipes with their favorite foods.

I make a mild version for my son and then add the spices I want for that meal to mine and dh's. If it is not spicy enough for dh then he adds either his spices or hot sauce to it.

I received my coupon and gift card yesterday! I would first like to say Thank you to Ragu,Target and Cafemom for choosing us for such a yummy influencer! For our comfort food we decided to make a dish called red and white pasta. It is not only a nice cheap meal, it is easy to make and nice and hearty as well. There are only 4 ingredients in this dish,Pasta(we used Elbow macaroni), Ragu Alfredo sauce,Spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese! The total cost for everything pictured was less then $10!!!

Once you have all your ingrediants prep'd you mix them together and bake for 15 minutes

Then just serve and eat! A delicious,simple and inexpensive meal! Everyone loved it!

There are certain comfort food and meals that we are pretty sure that the kids will eat any time we make them. Often spaghetti with sausage or pepperoni is one we will make. Another meal is burritos.

If a meal can include cheese and pasta, my family loves it.  It's a great way to get veggies into them.

 I stick to basics and make sure everyone will eat it .. Tacos , pasta and hamburgers are big on our list as well as chili and hotdogs .. Pizza comes in at the top ... but with that one everyone gets there own as no one likes the same toppings .
