Yesterday, I knew I needed something easy for dinner. It was just that kind of day. I chose a super-easy meal from my menu: Rigatoni with Meat Sauce.
I simply boiled the rigatoni, drained it, and dumped it into an oven-safe dish. Then I mixed the pasta with some meat sauce from the freezer and half a jar of marinara from the fridge. Finally, I sprinkled a bunch of mozzarella cheese on top and popped it in the oven until melted. It really couldn’t be any easier.
I was happy that I didn’t have to work too hard and I was able to use up some stuff from my fridge and freezer. But my kids were happy that I had made one of their favorite meals. Say what?
When my youngest kiddo saw what I was making, he surprised me with a big hug and said, “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” Um…you’re welcome? Then, when my daughter came to the table, she was too excited and told me this was one of her favorite meals. Really? Who knew?!?
