Pasta Puttanesca

We don't get home from work until 730. Then we have to cook, eat and get ready for bed at least by 830. That doesn't give us a lot of time to make some of our favorite recipes.
This is where Veggie Kids comes in. Sarah posts healthy vegan recipes. I love trying out new recipes but sometimes the prep/cook time is too long. Sarah just started a new feature on her blog called easy weeknight meals. She will be featuring 2-3 quick & easy, family-friendly vegan meals each week that come together in 30 minutes or less using 10 ingredients or less.

Dave made the Pasta Puttanesca. He was finished and had it on plates in less than 30 minutes. Perfect for our quick nighttime schedule and it was delicious. We will be printing this out and adding it to our binder.

Remember how I said Elinor is not eating a lot since she was sick? Well she ate almost a whole bowl of this. I was surprised. I thought she would just pick out the noodles but she loved the tomatoes, mushrooms and olives too.
Check out Veggie Kids. Even if you aren't vegan, give a meat free meal a try!
