This is a quick and easy dinner that you can make in just 10 minutes. I like easy and fast meals so that dinner can be less stress to me on busy weeks and busy nights. Got home late? This meal will help you get in plenty of veggies in no time flat.

  3. Sautee veggies and sauce uncovered for 2-5 minutes until sauce thicken.

This recipe is a go to for me when I’m busy and need something simple and easy to whip up. It’s also delicious and filling so it’s a staple on busy weeks.

As far as the protein of choice, I like to batch cook chicken thighs early in the week for grab and go on meals where my husband wants them. I also buy precooked chicken thighs from Costco on weeks I’m strapped for meal prep time. Whatever works for you is best, these are just a few options for easier prep.
