Honestly why take the risk when you can make one from scratch while the pasta cooks? I mean its probably OK but if you used tinnned tomatoes you can make a pasta sauce in the same time....

Yep sure

for a classic quick bolognaise ....

Start off and chop onions and start frying (1/2 onion per person is about right if you are adding meat, if its a neapolitan more onion and no meat)

Add a teaspoon to table spoon of mixed herbs and when onions softens and some salt and 1/2-1 clove garlic per person sliced thin or crushed (I use the flat of a knife to crush .. pull off the skin then chop having just cut off ends ..really quick way faster than a garlic press! ) salt to taste...

Then meat if making bolgnaise then add tomato puree once meat starts browning (table spoon per person is fine)

stir it in then add 1 tin tomatoes per 2 people ... a gluten-free beef stock cube pre dissilved in cup of boiling water and about another cup of water per person ....

When its nearly ready add some corn starch to a cup and slwly make to a paste with water... then add enough water to make a decent amount of sauce and stir in... (just make up a lof of corn starch its cheap... and add enough .... so when its back on the boil its the right consistency)

....

leave to stand while you drain the pasta (timings should be about right) and then add grated pamesan.

Back to the original question, Ragu is a Unilever brand, and will clearly disclose any gluten in the ingredients using one of the words wheat, rye, barley or oats. If you don't see one of these words, then it does not contain gluten. Enjoy!

I've used several flavors of Ragu, and have not had a problem. Like Peter said, just read the label to be sure that the one you have is ok.

I have also used Ragu and also Newman's Own with no problems. I take every opportunity to use a mainstream brand when I can.

I eat Ragu all the time. You're good.

And like Tom, I try and use a mainstream brand wherever possible. I spend enough money on the specialty items like gluten free bagels, pasta, ect.

The name is never used here. "Spaghetti sauce" is a very specific type of tomato-based sauce with only very minor variations. It comes canned or bottled. It is very tomatoey, and a large amount of sauce goes on the pasta.

For most people this is the only way they ever have eaten spaghetti.

Oh the shame of it, there is so much more to pasta sauce than what we usually think of here in the US.

That's my point really.... its so simple...its cheaper and you can be a lot more flexible with your ingredients.

and... it really doesn't take any time if you start by boiling water for spagetti.... by the time its cooked the ragu is ready. I'm not saying it might not get better cooked slowly but its still got to be better than something in a jar packed with chemicals?

Ragù è un termine utilizzato per indicare un sugo o una pietanza composta da numerosi ingredienti (che variano a seconda delle regioni) ma sempre a base di carne.

Quasi sempre i ragù sono usati per condire pasta o sformati.

Ragu is a term utilised to indicate a sauce or "sauce dish" composed of several ingredients. (which varies according to the region) {presuming we conjugate seconda in the aggiuntive} but always with a meat base.

Usually the ragu is used to "dress" a pasta or "moulded dish"

moulded dish means like a souffle in this context being dervied from the verb to mould ... (or pie if you prefer)

Which is rather the point, especially since you have a fairly reasonable number of second language Italian speakers.... and ragu is a VERY VERY basic term that even a 10th generation Italian family who speak no Italian at home would use everyday.

Additionally it is also a frequently used Spanish (borrowed from Italian) word

m. Guiso a base de carne troceada y guarnecida con patatas y verduras.

I'm presuming I don't need to translate the Spanish...

Foodies over here know that Ragu isn't just a cheap bottled sauce, but since consumer culture prevails, that's what most people think of.

Basically, what most people call spaghetti sauce over here is bolognese sauce. Just like in England crisps are chips and chips are french fries.

My sister got in trouble with her British inlaws once when she said she needed to iron her husband's pants :lol:

I make an exquisite bolognese sauce (family practically eats it as soup :rolleyes: ), but since I'm an American that is only enrolled in culinary school and hasn't attended yet, it's spaghetti sauce :)

It's one of those things that everyone knows what it is, but doesn't necessarily know what it's called. Just be happy nobody is trying to pronounce it :lol:

Gee, I want me some baloney-ese sauce! ( ;) )

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      You could take shrimp cocktail -- just ice it & no need for heating that then. How about following up with some coconut crusted fish with some nice veggies on the side? That could just be nuked to reheat & only takes a minute or two. Make sure when they put it in the microwave that it is covered in case there is gluten lurking on the ceiling of the microwave that can fall down into his food.
    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
