4 Minute Meal: Pasta in a Pinch (No Boiling Water Required)

The day my husband brought home Barilla ready pasta I declared I would not eat microwave pasta. But what do you know, it’s not gross! Actually, it’s a staple in my kitchen these days. I use it as a base for a super quick meal when I need to eat in a hurry.

Here’s what I throw together:

  1. Barilla Ready Pasta (microwaves in 60 seconds)
  2. Roasted red peppers from a jar
  3. Artichoke hearts from a jar
  4. Greek olives
  5. Cheese (this varies, currently using smoked mozzarella)
  6. Oil
  7. Balsalmic vinegar

That’s it! Ready in less than 5 minutes and the kids love it.

Lesson learned from this post: Get Ready Pasta and throw in some random stuff in your fridge. It will taste good and save you an hour in the kitchen.
