One of our favourite meals is Pesto Pasta. It is quick and easy to make, which makes it great for nights when we don't feel like cooking. It also tastes delicious, so we usually make heaps of it and eat it for days. This is one of the vegetarian meals we eat on our meal plan, and I just love it.

Key ingredients:
Rotini (we are currently working through a giant bag of tri-colour rotini that we got on super sale)
Basil Pesto (we get it in a jar...and we love it!)
Parmesan Cheese (we are shaker people except for special occasions)
Various vegetables (we like zuchinni and spinach)
Balsamic vinegar - optional (sometimes we add it, and sometimes we don't. We like to mix it up!)

The recipe is super simple. Boil pasta, saute vegetables, and mix everything together with Pesto and Parmesan cheese. So easy!

Sauteing spinach and zucchini
Add Parmesan and pesto to boiled pasta and stir
Mix in spinach and zucchini - I love how this meal looks!
I could eat this for days - and often I do! :)

  1. These are my favorite kinds of meals. Easy but filling and oh so nummy.

    PS: Much congrats on the 51% savings. That is super duper cool.

    1. Thanks! I love getting deals!

    2. Me too. Something great about saving money. Tomorrow morning I have a short trip planned to a store right near home. The plan is to get up and get back early enough to play in the kitchen. Or, maybe work on the office, that needs cleaned.

    3. Sounds like a great day. Have a good one! :)
