Recently I was asked what was the meal I turned to most when I am tired, no time to cook and the kids are fussy. It is a simple solution and something I always have on hand. Each Sunday I boil a big pot of pasta noodles — I vary them from week to week. They stay in my fridge and make throwing together a cold or hot dinner a breeze.
Some of you might cook your own meatballs, but I’d rather poke my eye out. I buy the bag from Costco or Sam’s Club.
I microwave frozen fully cooked meatballs according to package directions. I throw some frozen vegetables into into heated chunky spaghetti sauce and serve over the warmed up pasta. Top with cheese and done. A bagged salad and some fresh bread and I look like a Chef.
The kids are happy. The husband’s happy. The dogs who get my unused Pasta on saturdays are estatic.
