Carbonara Stromboli with Ragú® Classic Alfredo #NewTraDish



What do you think of when you hear the word "traditional?"

When it comes to food, traditional can be am excellent thing. It reminds me of old family recipes, memories, and  food that has standed the test of time. However, with that said, change can be a good thing too, right?  

To a lot of parents, spring is a season of change. The weather finally warming up in the Philadelphia suburbs and the kids are spending more time outside with friends. Parents everywhere will be rushing off to after school sports practices that, far too often, interfere with our sit down family dinners.

This season of change is what inspired me to create this new #tradish meal, Carbonara Stromboli with Ragú® Classic Alfredo.

Ragú has a delicious, simple recipe for Fettuccine Carbonara on their website. This recipe is fantastic just the way it is, but I wanted to come up with a way to incorporate a few of the same ingredients for a grab and go dinner. Ultimately, I was inspired to create Carbonara Stromboli with Ragú® Classic Alfredo and it was a awesome! 

Here's what you need to make it:

  • 1 tsp of Pesto or Fresh Basil
  • 1 cup of Ragu® Cheesy Classic Alfredo Sauce
  • 4 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
  • 2/3 cup cooked chicken (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
  • Pre-made pizza dough

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Roll out your pizza dough, and spread on 1 tsp of pesto sauce or basil. Then, sprinkle on your bacon, chicken and shredded mozzarella.  

Fold dough over and pinch ends together. Then, cut 3 small holes on the top.  You may also choose to brush a little bit of olive oil on top of the stromboli.

Cook in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Slice into individual sections to serve.

When this stromboli came out of the oven it was oozing with Ragú's creamy Alfredo Sauce. Before my son even finished his meal, he told me how much he liked it and asked me to make it again. Ragú has the Authentic Italian taste American family’s love and a variety of great tasting, quick and easy to make family favorite recipes.
