Foodbuzz Family Bites: Chunky Sockarooni Bolognese

A few months ago, Foodbuzz asked if I would like to participate in a new feature they were going to introduce - Family Bites.  Each blogger who signed on to do this would be provided some new products from Newman's Own and would need to come up with some recipes using these products. 

I had some fun using the products, and I was already a fan of Newman's Own from previous experience.  The first recipe I'm going to share this week is a quick and easy Chunky Sockaroon Bolognese.  This will come together in no time on a busy weeknight and the addition of Newman's Own Sockarooni sauce makes it so easy to put together a flavorful meal for your family.


The leftover meat sauce can be used in another recipe I will share tomorrow.  Be sure to check out my feature on Foodbuzz HERE each day this week.  I'm very excited to be a part of this new feature and welcome any new readers that found me via the Foodbuzz Family Bites feature!

A Bolognese is a sauce that is full of flavor and has a stick-to-your ribs taste to it. It’s simple to prepare and every member of the family will be sopping up the sauce with baguette slices.

Ingredients
1 ¼ pounds of lean ground beef (80% or better)
8 ounce package of button mushrooms (or baby Portobello’s), sliced
1 ½ cups Newman’s Own Sockarooni Pasta Sauce
½ pound of linguine, cooked to package instructions

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6

1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once meat has been browned, drain any drippings.

2. Add sliced mushrooms and allow to cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes.

3. Add Newman’s Own Sockarooni Pasta Sauce and bring to a boil. Then, lower heat to a simmer and cover for about 10 minutes.

4. Serve over cooked linguine.

Looks like a delicious recipe. My turn with the Newman's won't come until September. I have been amazed at the wonderful creativity of the foodbuzz cooks.
