Review: Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce

Published 11:54 am

We have pasta night every Wednesday, so I use Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce on an almost weekly basis. I like whenever possible to use organic products for my family's meals. However, I don't like the price.

There are three different varieties; cheese, garden veggie and traditional. I prefer garden veggie, but will take whatever is available at my local store.

If you're looking to save money on organics, Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce is a good product. However, it doesn't really stand up to the competition. The primary word in the ingredients list is "pureed." Pureed vegetables, pureed tomatoes. The product lacks the chunks of organic tomatoes and vegetables that are usually present in other organic pasta sauces.

The Whole Foods organic sauces were very chunky, and included varieties such as in Eggplant, Tomato Basil, Italian Herb, and Mushroom flavors. The nutrition for some of the sauces were better, too. For example, the Tomato Basil was lower in sodium, and the eggplant sauce contained 25% of the RDA of vitamin C, whereas Ragu's organic pasta sauce contained only 8%. The other sauces in Whole Foods' line of pasta and marinara sauces were more comparable to Ragu's sauce.

Ragu's sauce did contain a lot of sugar in comparison to Whole Foods' sauces, which had no added sugar. This increased the calories in Ragu's sauce to 80 per half cup serving, whereas Whole Foods' pasta and marinara sauces weighed in at only around 40 to 50 calories per half cup serving.

I probably wouldn't mind paying a little bit more per week for the Whole Foods pasta and marinara sauces. I don't have a Whole Foods near me, though, so I find it very convenient to pick up the Ragu sauce at Wal-Mart. It saves me a little bit of money, and actually I found that my boys prefer it to the Whole Foods sauces.

Overall, I think this is a good product. I think it would benefit, though, from the addition of some diced vegetables and tomatoes. I also would very much appreciate some more Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce varieties, such as Tomato and Basil, and Eggplant, like Whole Foods offers. A no-sugar Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce would also make me very happy. Still as it is, Ragu Organic Pasta Sauce is pretty handy. I plan to continue using it on the weeks that I can't make it out to Whole Foods Market.
