Need a quick meal during the week? I’m
talking insanely quick and economical to make. Got to get your child to a
practice or activity? Perhaps there’s a Zoom meeting scheduled just after
dinner. No problem. I’ve got your back with this tasty Roasted Red Pepper Pasta
meal fit for a family of four. Add sausage or chicken into the mix, and you’ve
got yourself a hearty Italian meal that fills you up for the night. This whole
meal takes about 20-30 minutes to prepare, which gives you plenty of wiggle
room to make that meeting or taxi the kids to their activity. Serve with a side
salad and glass of your favorite wine (if that meeting was cancelled), to
celebrate the end of the day in style.
Prepare rigatoni or penne according to
package directions. Drain and keep warm.
Spray skillet with oil and sauté sausage
(or chicken) over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes or until cooked through;
remove from pan.
While pasta is cooking, prepare the pepper
pasta sauce. In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Cook the
onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, or until lightly browned.
Add soup, milk, cream, sausage (or
chicken) and pepper (optional); gently whisk until smooth and simmering. Reduce
heat, simmer 2-3 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.
Stir Parmesan and fresh basil, parsley,
and oregano into pasta sauce. Toss sauce with hot pasta and serve with more
Parmesan, if desired. Then, enjoy the fruits of your labors!
After your meeting is done and you’ve picked up the kids, take a seat in your favorite comfy chair and crack open one of my books. May I suggest a visit to Fairy Falls, or if you’re feeling really adventurous, a trip back in time with The Last Timekeepers? Whichever you choose, I guarantee either series will take you on a journey far away from Zoom meetings or shuffling the kids around.
Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers—legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from the evil Belial—five classmates are sent into the past to restore balance, and bring order back into the world, one mission at a time.
Children are the keys to our future. And now, children are the
only hope for our past.
