While I love to cook, I rarely have time to make a nice dinner during the week. Add to that the fact that I live alone and cooking for one is not very fun, or results in eating the same thing for the week.
My plan yesterday was to cook up some pasta during the day, so I could just reheat it at the end of the night. Well, those plans fell by the wayside. Big surprise.
So today I ended up with a little time on my hands (woo hoo!) and whipped up some yummy dinner for tonight.
While it looks impressive (at least to me) it was very easy and consists only of whole wheat pasta, frozen spinach, Trader Joe's meatless meatballs, sliced cherry tomatoes,some red pepper flakes, and a little olive oil. Voila!
A side note on the meatless meatballs...I've been a fan of these for years and years. Somewhere along the line I decided to mash them, which when used with tomato sauce ends up more the consistency of a bolognese, which I love. As a meat eater, I find that the consistency and taste of them is pretty close to the real deal. Give them a try if you haven't already.
Now I know that after my weekly boot-camp a$$ kicking I will at least have something tasty to eat for dinner.
Happy Thursday to all!
