What’s easier than a good one-pot meal, right?! Who’s with me?! We always have pasta in our pantry for days when we just don’t feel like making anything elaborate. These easy one-pot pasta dinners hit the spot for busy weeknights.
Is it just me, or does it seem like Summer turned to Fall in the blink of an eye?! All of a sudden we went from beach days and cabin trips to early mornings, endless activities and lunchbox packing!
Well now that we’re in the thick of it, and I have not one but TWO kids in school, I’m reminded of just how important it is to have easy weeknight dinner recipes on hand for those crazy weeknights. And what’s easier than a good one-pot meal, right?! Who’s with me?!
Because we love love love pasta in our house, we decided to experiment with a few new quick and easy pasta recipes that are perfect for those chaotic weeknights when you only have half an hour to whip something up for your crew.
No fancy ingredients here — just nutritious whole-food ingredients that you’d have in your fridge and pantry anyways.
And in honour of keeping it real…
Along with the regularly busyness of life with young kids (and the fact that novice hockey and gymnastics has taken over my life), we’re going through some fairly significant transitions in our house and within our family (more on this to come), that has added some complexity and stress to our days, so having easy, go-to meals that are nourishing and tasty, for chaotic weeknights is key. And I know I’m not alone in this!
So, without further ado, here they are. Enjoy!
And if you’re anything like me, and love to send leftovers for lunch the next day, these are the BEST lunchbox additions
