Pasta for sure. Baked ziti(3 cheese with whole wheat pasta and sauce, then baked)or cappalini with shrimp scampi for me and tomato sauce with frozen meatballs for the family. Always with with French bread and a salad. I can have that on the table in less than an hour. 30 minutes if I have bread on hand and don't have to make it.

Sweat is just fat crying!

Quinoa Salad.

You can cook this in as little as 15 minutes in a rice cooker. Meanwhile, I dice some onion, tomato, and mabe add a can of beans (black, red, kidney). Throw it all together and add a little olive oil or lemon juice and you have a hearty vegetarian meal with a complex protein to boot.

Quinoa has become my replacement for white rice. What a great food!

My go to meal is quick and easy homemade minestrone soup. I love making soups, but most of my favorites are time consuming (like my red lentil indian soup; not a lot of chopping, but it has to be pureed which is the time consuming part). I make a minestrone with dried basil/oregano, fresh garlic and onion, potato, celery and carrots, a couple cans of kidney beans and a tomato base with Pacific Organic veggie broth and canned diced tomatoes. I always make extra for leftovers.

In cold weather, I open a can of beans and add whatever sounds good - tomatoes, garlic, onion, spinach, etc. Then, I pour some over the top of brown rice or baked potato half, sprinkle a little cheese on top and YUM! This makes more than enough to have some to take to work the next day.

During warm weather, this tends to be a tuna salad sandwich (I add chopped egg, sweet pickle, mayo and sometimes green onions).

But this time of year, my stand by is pasta with marinara sauce and sardines (olive oil packed and drained). Sometimes I make the sauce from scratch (onions, can of diced tomatoes, can of tomato paste, spices -- all organic) and sometimes I use a bottled sauce.

Sometimes I swap out the sardines with tuna or any leftover fish I have.

We've all got one -- that meal we turn to when we're not in to mood to go out and not in the mood to cook something elaborate. It's fast, it's tasty and the ingredients are almost always in your pantry.

So share what it is here!
