I made two quick fixes one week, Pasta Fagoli and Angel Hair Caprese. Pasta Fagoli is a soup with pasta and beans inside, and was a very quick fix, around 30 minutes. It was really good on a cold evening. Angel Hair Caprese was pasta with a light olive oil and garlic sauce with fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and parmeasan cheese topping it.
It was light but very filling. Both recipes went over well with my family and were simple to prep and clean up!
"The Chew: What's For Dinner" is published by Hyperion. It is $19.99.
