Pass the Pasta…Weeknight Meals Made Easy!

I don’t know about your family, but mine? Well, let’s just say I’m not June Cleaver, and I’m not making dinner for 4 hours a day. 

If’ I’m lucky, I pull together dinner in an hour, if I can.  I rarely, if ever, WANT to.

Not sure why that is though…I do love to cook.  It just seems that once dinnertime hits, I’m over it.  I don’t want to bake anything, fry anything, broil anything, or boil anything.  I just want to eat.

Plus, it feels like I have run myself ragged all day.  Take the kid to school. Work. Errands. Pick the kid up. Work. And it’s not just me – we are ALL busy.  Busier than ever, if I had to guess…so who has time for a gourmet dinner every day?

Not me.

So, pasta is a lifesaver in my house.

If you have a quick sauce already made, or even a storebought sauce, you can dress up a box of pasta with a few veggies in less than half an hour.  Lasagna can be quick, too, if you have just a little more time.  Or, fry up some beef, or pork, or turkey burger, toss it with some broccoli and tomato sauce, again, you are eating quickly and happily.

Happy is good.

Happy means you can get out of the kitchen and maybe watch an episode of Grey’s Anatomy when it’s actually ON.  Isn’t that a lofty dream?

Oh, it’s good to dream.

Now, I want to know YOUR easy and go-to pasta recipes.  So do my friends at Dreamfields.  In case you aren’t familiar with Dreamfields, you should be.  They are the healthier pasta – lower digestible carbs – which is great for someone like me, who needs to watch my carb intake.  If you’re diabetic, pre-diabetic, or have a history of diabetes in your family, it’s a wise option to look into Dreamfields.

I’m going to make it even easier for you to get answers…we are having a Twitter Party today at noon, Eastern Standard time.  Come by and ask your questions, and please, SHARE your pasta recipes with us!!

I will be there, and Brandi, of BranAppetit will be, too.  Joining us is the team from Dreamfields, and we are excited to talk with you about PASTA! 

Wanna know what else?  We are giving away LOTS of great goodies there!  Gift certificates and plenty of Dreamfields Pasta – so come on by.  Hope to see you there!
