Easy Recipes

Easy recipes were essential when I was single because I didn’t have much experience cooking and I hate cooking for 1. I didn’t want to make anything elaborate since it was just me and I didn’t meal plan so never ended up thawing meat out. This meal was made from the things I could buy in bulk at my local warehouse store and I’d make this whenever I hadn’t planned or just wanted something simple (which was A LOT!!)

Back then I made it with regular wheat noodles but of course that has since changed, now I use gluten-free pasta noodles.

Now I love making this for the family because it’s simple and there aren’t a lot of dishes, which as a mother of 3 young boys, that is very helpful! My boys are picky eaters and this is one of the few dishes they actually like so that helps as well.
