Easy Meal In Minutes. This post includes my affiliate links
During the summer, I don’t really like to spend a lot of my time cooking, in a hot kitchen. We do a lot of grilling outside, Slow Cooker meals, ordering out and stuff like that. I also enjoy finding good, EASY recipes to make that won’t require a lot of time in the kitchen, over the stove for hours, type of meals.
Easy Meal In Minutes
I found one and had to try it out. I am sure you have all heard of the ‘One Pot Meal‘? It was plastered all over Facebook about a month or so ago. Of course, I had to try it out the day I saw it.
It looked so simple to make and only required a few ingredients. I could totally make that, I thought! I was right. It turned out AMAZINGLY delicious! I think this recipe originated from Martha Stewart. I added my own personal touch, by adding more ingredients like the olives, green onions, diced tomatoes, etc.. I love this Easy Meal In Minutes!
- Spaghetti Noodles (I used half a package)
- Tomatoes (I used two large ones) sliced
- One Medium Onion (sliced)
- Green Onions ( I used two)
- I can of Olives (chopped)
- 1 Can of diced tomatoes
- Mushrooms (4 large, sliced)
- Garlic (I used the garlic in a jar 1 tablespoon)
- Salt and Pepper (I did not measure, just put what I felt like was enough :))
- 4-5 cups of water (depending on how you like it)
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Combine ALL ingredients into a saucepan
- Bring to a boil and mix continuously until water is absorbed into noodles/food
I served this with Rhodes Rolls (which can be found in your frozen section of your supermarket). I can’t believe how delicious this was, it really really was. My kids loved it too. Any meal with noodles is a win in our home anyways, with the kids!
This meal is a win/win because I think of the cleanup afterward.. ya, with a one pot meal, there is only ONE pot to clean up and if you use paper plates, that is all you have to clean up! I just rinsed the pan off in the sink, put it in my dishwasher and added my Finish Quantum Power & Free® pod and the rest is history! An easy meal and quick cleanup? Now that is my kind of summer!!!
