Forgot The Pizza Crust? No Worries — Try This Easy Hawaiian Pizza Pasta Bake

After planning to whip up a homemade Hawaiian pizza for dinner one night, I realized I had completely forgotten the pizza crust. I still had everything else on hand though, so I decided to mix it up — I grabbed a box of penne pasta and a jar of RAGÚ® pasta sauce from the pantry and got to cooking like a mother! By mixing up the same flavors of Hawaiian pizza and adding it to the pasta, it turned out to be the perfect dish, and I had so much fun cooking up a storm with RAGÚ®.

From that night on, this recipe has officially become a family favorite in our house. Even better? It’s a great dinner to have the kids help with along the way. It’s all about owning it in the kitchen and having fun with it.
