During a busy weeknight, it's sometimes hard to make a healthy and satisfying meal for your family. I do love quick dinner fixes especially after a long day at work. Although I do enjoy cooking, I don't like to be slaving away all night on a weeknight. I'd like to think of myself as a Sandra Lee... semi-homemade! Something that I can whip up relatively fast. For me, pasta is a go to meal that is quick and easy and baby loves it too. You can change it up so many ways and always plenty of leftovers to bring to work the next day.
I was always particularly fond to Prego tomato sauces. So when I found out I was going to be able to try out their new Prego Cooking Sauces, I was pretty excited. I received a free sample of the creamy lemon parmesan sauce and I couldn't wait to try it. 'Just add chicken and it'll be ready in about 20 minutes', just pick it up from your local supermarket. I opted for shrimp instead since I've been eating chicken all week and I can say it was equally delish and even faster to cook and get dinner ready. I paired it with roasted garlic & parsley linguini with a spring of fresh basil from the garden. Simple ingredients makes for a savory meal.
It reminded me of one of my other pasta dishes that I typically make. A few simple ingredients: bowtie pasta, broccoli florets, and chicken breast in an olive oil/butter garlic sauce finished with a squeeze of lemon and grated parmesan. This Prego Cooking Sauce will be a quick alternative too for those who may not be too savvy in the kitchen with all the gourmet flavors. The recipes are endless and can be switched up from chicken to seafood and adding any type of pasta to accompany it with. I will definitely be trying out the other flavors soon. What are some of your quick dinner solutions and recipes to share?
