Even more than string cheese, they love mozzarella sticks. When presented with the opportunity to work with Ragu® I knew our easy homemade mozzarella sticks recipe would be great.

With no artificial flavors, color, and no high fructose corn syrup. Ragu® Homestyle Thick & Hearty traditional was the perfect mate for our cheesy mozzarella sticks. Everyone loved the mozzarella sticks
