Mother of three Ashley Rodriquez (of the blog Not Without Salt) writes about preparing a
quick dinner that satisfies her kids—and then taking it up a notch to satisfy
both herself and her husband. So many weeknight dinners happen this way, and
we’re happy to have a simple and delicious pasta recipe to reach for on harried
nights when spending time on dinner prep just isn’t in the cards. Ashley would
know what this is like: With three little ones racing around, cooking elaborate
weeknight dinners is rarely in the cards. For this recipe, she recommends
tossing the pasta with whatever vegetables “strike your fancy.” Because of
this, it’s a wonderful excuse to use up what you have in the crisper. Easy,
adaptable and satisfying: all the right notes for busy parents.
notes: Ashley recommends serving your kids first and
then dousing the adult portions with a bit of Sriracha. We think a poached egg
on top would be wonderful, too. Also swap out the pasta for soba noodles for a nuttier taste. Just follow the instructions on the pack to cook.
