Quick Healthy Dinner

I’m always looking for quick but healthy meals to throw together!  As much as I do like to cook, after a long day at work sometimes I just don’t feel like doing it.  More often than not, I usually try to make a meal stretch for a good amount of time so I don’t have to worry about lunches at work and what not.  Thankfully I have a wonderful friend/neighbor (I convinced her and some of our other friends to move in down the hall!).  Every Tuesday we have “family dinner” where one of us will cook a meal for everyone else.  It really helps when it comes to meal planning because unless it’s my turn to cook, I at least know I have one meal for the week taken care of.

Pasta is always a good go to, but every once in awhile I like to mix it up and not use the traditional tomato sauce.  I love Prego’s Homestyle Alfredo sauce.  And in order to help reduce the amount of dishes I have, once the pasta has cooked and has been drained, I just throw the pasta and the alfredo sauce right back into the same pot!

Since pasta and alfredo sauce can be kind of boring, I just cut up some zucchini (and usually some squash too!) and throw in onto a pan with some vegetable oil or olive oil, salt, and pepper!

It’s a very easy dinner with minimal work and clean up afterwards (a huge plus!) and it tastes delicious.  Plus, you can always make a little extra to have for lunch the following day.
