Roasted Veggie Lasagna Roll Ups

As I was writing this blog post, a Meijer commercial came on and all it said repeatedly was “MEAT. MEAT. MEAT. MEAT. MEAT” – anyone know which commercial I’m talking about?! Ironically, this post is about the exactly opposite, haha. I’ve been cutting the meat out of my diet lately but adding more… cheese? What? That’s not like me, but this was SO WORTH IT. 

Chicken Avocado Linguine

Looking for a quick and easy dinner that will be on the table in less than 25 minutes? It’s possible! I was on a mission one night reorganizing my entire closet in order to maximize my closet space. Little did I know that it was going on 8pm! I was in a time crunch and had to get something on the table, ASAP! Okay, so near the end of the week, my fridge is diminishing in ingredients so I had to a) be creative & b) act fast. 1 avocado… a bag of chicken… some leftover grape tomatoes… and pasta. Hmm… Chicken avocado linguine with roasted grape tomatoes? Sounds like a plan.

Spicy Sausage Cacciatore

I’m feeling a guilty pleasure for dinner tonight, and no, it’s not something sweet! Sausage + pasta = trouble… double trouble. Every now and then, I feel I deserve to indulge in a sweet, spicy and savory dish. This isn’t just any plate of pasta, it’s Spicy Sausage Cacciatore! I initially planned to use chicken as my protein but I had a package of hot Italian sausage in my fridge, so why not. Okay, so I cheated just a little. Instead of making a sauce from crushed tomatoes, I opted the jarred sauce instead. Don’t judge me.
