It’s Tips for Tuesday!
This week’s tip: Freeze pasta for a super quick future meal!
Pasta freezes very well and helps make a quick meal. It can prevent you from reaching for something ready-made or going out. If you have little children, like I do, it really helps to make your own frozen meals or sides. Pasta is a great go-to ingredient. It is extremely versatile and can be the cornerstone of a nutritious meal. See how below:
- Freeze leftovers or make more than you need, portion it, and freeze in freezer-safe containers. Freeze the pasta plain, so that you can incorporate it into any kind of meal you want.
- Remove the pasta from the freezer and plunge into very hot water. Remove after a minute, strain, and it’s ready!
- Add your sauce, veggies, cheese, or whatever you have on hand, and heat through.
Note: See two of my recent pasta dishes below.
