Life gets busy. By the time you get home from a long day at work, the last thing you can feel like doing is trying complicated food recipes to feed your family. Instead, you probably want to relax with a nice glass of wine.
However, there is a way to feed your family nutritious, delicious food without all that prep time. And that’s by preparing meals in advance so you can microwave them when you’re short on time. Here are a few microwave-friendly meals for those days when time just isn’t on your side.
The Italians were onto something when they experimented with pasta dishes. Pasta is a versatile, delicious, and often nutritious meal that the whole family can enjoy. It’s also affordable and something you can prepare in advance in bulk, then freeze and microwave at a moment’s notice.
Thumb through the pages of your recipe book and highlight pasta recipes your family will love. Mac ‘n’ cheese, pesto pasta, carbonara, and similar, are standouts that can taste as delicious reheated as they do fresh.
