It’s easy to get into a rut at dinner time…

We often fall into a routine of making either quick healthy dinners that cut calories, or comfort foods we know our kids won’t complain about like grilled chicken salad or spaghetti with marinara.


There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s good to have a few staple meals you can pull together without ever looking at a recipe.

    this looks really good. Where do you buy the thin egg noodles? I’m assuming you don’t use angel hair pasta.

      Hi Adele, I found it at our local grocery store. You can use egg angel hair if you can’t find it. :)

    Just made this for dinner and …………. OMGosh!!!!!
    I added some sliced fresh portabello mushroom, added a bit more chili flakes, and doubled the sauce.
    This is definitely going into the monthly rotation. Yes, I said monthly. I doubt if I cook the same meal more than 6 times a year.
    I’m a foodie by nature, a cook by profession and a genetically predisposed recipe hoarder. This one’s going into the collection, but into the “find it fast cuz we love it” section.
