It’s Tips for Tuesday!
This week’s tip: Freeze that pasta for a super quick future meal!
Pasta freezes very well and helps to 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 to a nutritious meal. See how below:
- Freeze leftovers or make more than you need, portion it, and freeze it in freezer-safe containers. Freeze the pasta plain, so that you can incorporate it into any kind of quick meal you want.
Remove the pasta from the freezer and plunge it 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: A great quick meal for kids is to take the pasta and toss it with olive oil and feta cheese (or their favorite cheese).
