An Easy Dinner with Classico!
If you are anything like me, you have big plans for dinner at the beginning of the week, but as the week goes on and things get busy, I am searching for the easiest thing to make.
Enter Classico. I received the Classico Organic Tomato Basil sauce to try and review. I usually purchase Classico marinara from Costco, because it is our favorite jarred sauce that we have tried over pasta.
It was a use up what is in the fridge kind of dinner. I had been working all day and Dex wasn’t feeling like himself, and Gus unplugged his G-tube in the middle of me trying to cook.
Anyway- I thought I would share a quick and easy recipe that used what was in my fridge as well as the yummy jar of Classico sauce.
Veggie Pasta Marinara
Cast of Characters:
First I heated a little avocado oil and added a good size spoonful of minced garlic (I was out of fresh, so I used the jarred stuff)
Then, i added two zucchini that I halved and sliced thinly, salt and pepper.
Once those were almost done, I added sliced white mushrooms and more salt and pepper.
While I was waiting for the mushrooms to cook down, I boiled the water for our favorite Banza pasta . It is made from chickpeas, and is by far my favorite pasta of any kind! I threw it in once the water was boiling, and let it cook while I finished the sauce.
Once the mushrooms and zucchini were completely done, I poured in the jar of sauce and let it combine with the veggies and simmer until the pasta was done.
I drained the pasta, and put it in the sauce. Stirred it up and dinner was ready!
It was so simple, but so good! Gus cleaned his plate, Bryan and I cleaned ours, and Dex tasted the pasta- which is a huge step for him! Pasta is not his favorite sensory experience. :)
I will definitely be making this again! It is Noel family approved.
I would love to hear your favorite, easy meals! I am always looking for new ones!
