Allergy-friendly quick and easy meal your husband can make when you haven’t gone shopping

Now that I’ve gotten your attention with that mouth-watering title, I need to give a disclaimer. I would heartily recommend ANY of those delicious recipes on the right to anyone who wants a good meal. This recipe is not really one of those types. I am listing this meal here for moms of kids with allergies like Sam, to make on “one of those days.” Today, Saturday,  was “one of those days.”  We had a busy day and arrived home at 5:30, all of us grouchy and starving. No groceries, no meal plan, no ideas. It is always a challenge with kids like Sam who are protein-challenged. The staples aren’t an option. Mac and cheese? Nope. PB and J? Nope. Grilled cheese? Oven pizza? No and no. So I was pleasantly surprised when I made this with Sam in mind – and liked it! Actually, check that, my HUSBAND made it. So you know it’s simple! 🙂 It is nothing special but perhaps another family grouchy and with bare cupboards could try it and like it!

Ingredients:

Fun shaped box of pasta (Sam likes shells)

Especially yummy jarred spaghetti sauce (as it will be the star of your un-gourmet meal…I used Bertolli’s 🙂

Olive oil

Jar of great northern beans

salt and pepper

 

Instructions:

Cook pasta, heat sauce, wash and drain beans. Combine pasta and sauce with a handful of beans per bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. You’ve got your protein (beans), fat (olive oil), and carbs (pasta!) And, yes, it was actually tasty!!
