I really didn't feel like cooking a big meal a few nights ago. You know even the Southern Foodette gets lazy every now and again. I try to keep stuff on hand that doesn't require a lot of effort to prepare like raviolis, tortellinis and tortellonis. I always have spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese too.
Ricotta and Spinach tortellonis are what I had in the pantry.
I also had a jar of good quality spaghetti sauce.
Boil some water
Add the tortellonis.
Drain and add sauce.
Top with Parmesan cheese.
How easy is that? Super easy I tell you!
Even when I am feeling lazy, I still try to cook something or make a sandwich instead of relying on fast food. Over the weekend we ended up grabbing some fast food from McDonald's but it was not good at all. When I met my husband, Mark, almost 9 years ago, he was a fast food junkie and still was until about 6 months or so ago. That night I got the biggest complement ever (food wise) from my husband when he threw his half eaten food away and said "you have spoiled us with your home cooking. I don't even want this crap anymore." I just about fell out in the floor. Even JW didn't want his happy meal food.
There is the proof that your family does benefit when you cook at home even when you are lazy. And you end up saving money!
