Two Timin’ Pasta

two-timin-pastaWhat is it with my family thinking they need dinner every night.  I mean, if I made a good dinner with a great side and a salad and rolls, that should at least count for 2, maybe 3 nights right?  Alas, at the end of each day, everyone thinks that they need dinner whether last night’s was spectacular or not.

So, after putting forth a 5 star effort, it’s nice to a dinner (or two) in the line up that can be pulled together in a snap.  This Two Timin’ Pasta from Pearls, Handcuffs and Happy Hour is exactly what I need on nights like this, and I know that you do too.


How easy is this: Boil pasta; mix together two jarred sauces, add pasta and cheese, mix together, pour in pan and cook.  That’s it!  This would also be a great starter meal for older kids/teens who are learning to cook.

I thought that this would be too saucy, with two jars, but it was the perfect amount.

Everyone really liked this dinner and I liked the fact that dinner was a hit and I had extra time so I l could watch the new Goldbergs episode instead of being in the kitchen.

–And it’s Mom for the win!
