Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

One Skillet Pappardelle Pasta Primavera

Ease into the week with this ridiculously fast and easy One Skillet Pappardelle Pasta Primavera – perfect for a Meatless Monday dinner.

I love Meatless Mondays.  Or Tuesdays through Sundays for that matter.  They’re so easy!  Nothing to have to remember to pull out of the freezer to thaw.  No grill or oven to preheat.  No braising, broiling, roasting or grilling.  And no worrying whether it will be tough – or too pink inside.  Oh, and of course, there’s all of that important environmental stuff, and the fact that people who eat more plant-based meals tend to be healthier overall.  But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s Monday, and we’re coming off the weekend, and we’re all busy, and we need easy for dinner tonight.  Plus, sometimes on a Sunday night, I just really don’t like to write long, involved recipes and blog posts.

I think everyone should have a few of these tried and true “Fast Food” non-recipes on hand, because there’s nothing wrong with food that’s fast, as long as it comes out of your own kitchen.  Keep in mind any meal can be Fast Food if you plan and prep ahead – cook your chicken, cut your vegetables, assemble your ingredients and put them in Ziploc bags.  You get the idea.
