Ragu Recipe for a Good Start Contest

Does this picture seem oddly familiar to you?

If so, you must have attended BlogHer Chicago last August.

I know, I know...why am I standing in front of a WAY too big, Ragu sculpture made entirely out of vegetables? (no joke - tomatoes, zucchini, get the idea) Well...maybe they didn't feed me enough at lunch and I wanted to pluck a few veggies for a snack? Okaaayy...

Actually, Ragu was a sponsor of BlogHer and they provided this fan-tabulous lunch for all of us! At first, I thought, "Oh no...a spaghetti lunch...just what a low-carber LOVES to hear." But guess what? I was totally wrong! The menu consisted of many other creative items made with Ragu sauce, such as Chicken Parmesan and an Italian pot pie. Why was I being so narrow minded about the luncheon and thinking only spaghetti? That's usually not like me. Maybe I was just too overcome with how cool the whole place was decorated. Isn't that pretty amazing?

Are you open minded enough to use Ragu sauce for something other than spaghetti dinners? If so, you may be interested in their latest "Ragu Recipe for a Good Start Contest."
