This is one that the whole family enjoyed! It’s a different twist on some classic recipes and part of a little creative recipe challenge. Ragú® asked me to create a few “New TraDishes” by mixing up a couple of Ragú® Classic Recipes into one new dish. I did it last month with a delicious philly cheesesteak pizza! And, this month our “New TraDish” is the chicken margherita sandwich! Chicken Marghertia SandwichRagú® has a number of quick and easy-to-make family favorite recipes – like Italian Cheese Steak Sandwiches and Chicken Margherita. So, those became my inspiration for this month’s New TraDish. I LOVE margherita pizza, so chicken margherita pizza would be delicious. But, I wanted to get a little more creative since we just did the philly cheesesteak pizza last month. So, I thought a big family-sized sandwich would be great!
