Here are some meals I typically pull out on weeknights. I make no claim that they are healthy or that you/your kids/your spouse/your cat will like them. What you see are not the full recipes. If you'd like the full recipe with measurements and everything, just send me an email!
What are your go-to weeknight meals?
- Pasta of your choice (I typically use bowties)
- Fresh basil
- Parmesan cheese (fresh is better)
Cook pasta as per the directions on the package. Chop up a good size handful of basil leaves, and grate the lemon rind until you have about 2 tablespoons. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it. Add about a cup of cream (I use whipping cream and go for full fat!), and about 1/2 cup of parm and stir until cheese is melted. Add lemon rind and basil and stir again. Squeeze the juice from the lemon. Serve with extra parm and freshly ground pepper to top!
Veggie “cream” soup
- 3-4 garlic cloves
- olive oil
- 2-3 sausages of your choice (I use mild Italian)
- your favourite pasta (I usually use fusilli)
Cook pasta as per directions. Meanwhile, cut sausages into slides and cook over medium heat until cooked through. Set aside. In the same pan, heat up oil and cooke garlic for 2-3 minutes (don't burn!). Mix pasta, sausages, and oil/garlic sauce. Done!
- Soy sauce
- Fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425F. Put wire baking rack over a baking sheet covered in tin foil. Dip each wing in soy sauce to coat and put on rack. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each wing. Bake for 20 minutes, flip each wing, and bake for another 20 minutes. I serve with coleslaw or other cut up veggies.
