Turn store-bought marinara sauce into something special with these easy weeknight recipes.

We’re not ones to turn our noses up at dinner shortcuts! Since not every night can be spent making homemade Pomodoro (much as we like to daydream about it) we often turn to store-bought marinara to aid us in the daily dinner expedition. Whether it’s a simple pasta that calls for sprucing up a jar of marinara, or transforming the jar into something new entirely, these are our favorite weeknight recipes that utilize a jar from the store.


PS - when it comes to turning a quick weeknight dinner into something gourmet, it’s all about the quality of the ingredients. Tap here to shop our new organic pasta sauces from Bio Orto, a company of third-generation farmers in southern Italy!


Zucchini Lasagna Rolls

No pasta, no problem! Use a vegetable peeler to get thin shaves of zucchini, which are pliable enough to roll into these perfect dumplings of ricotta cheese that bake to perfection in tomato sauce.

Pasta With Chicken Ragu

So hearty, so comforting, and so perfect for feeding the family. The leftovers are out of this world delicious, too!

Beef And Cheese Manicotti

Bookmark this staple for when the weather starts cooling down - there’s nothing as cozy as this.


Weeknight Chicken Thigh Parmesan

All the cheesy-crispy goodness of chicken Parm, made 10x easier! No breading or mess required, and storebought sauce makes it all the more simple to whip up.

Turkey-Stuffed Bell Peppers And Zucchini

One of Giada’s beloved classics, this is also a great dish to meal-prep ahead of time. Whip it up on Sunday for an easy and healthy lunch you can quickly heat up for a few days.
