By the time Friday afternoon rolls around my energy for the week is gone.

The temptation is to order pizza or some other meal out instead of cooking. However, I finally decided that Friday nights would be a good time to use quick recipes with pre-packaged ingredients (you know, ALL of the ones that you see on Pinterest ;).

They definitely aren’t the most healthy recipes, but they are less expensive then eating out and healthier.

And, I’ll gladly share the winners, we all need quick recipes from time to time.

With only four ingredients, this Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta recipe passed the test with flying colors. My WHOLE family (brother and parents included) loved it, and it really couldn’t have come together much quicker.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 25-oz package crispy chicken strips (or any other chicken you have on hand)
  • 1 12-oz package penne pasta (or other pasta of your choice)
  • 1 15-oz bottle alfredo sauce with garlic (or your favorite alfredo sauce)
  • 1 7.5-oz package Ham
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Directions:

For directions, please visit Six Sisters’ Stuff, the creators of this quick and easy week night recipe! :)

I do have to say that when I first read the list of ingredients I thought “it looks pretty simple, I bet the kids will really like it…” But after trying it, it actually has a ton of flavor, and the ham and chicken are such a great combination…the adults loved, it too!

Plus, all of the ingredients are easy to have on hand for any night when you are running late or need a quick dinner solution.

Enjoy!
Dawn

While you have less furniture in your home, and want to be minimalist, I am not sure if you really understand what it means to be a minimalist. To me, being a minimalist is about my attitude about what i purchase. It has to do with me being without new things and learning to buy only what has been used and handing down when Im done with it. It is about doing without the glam and hype of this world and appreciate the natural and organic life. Its about gentling stepping on this earth and appreciating the natural processes enough to stop getting in their way. It is definitely not about keeping the big salaries and spending constantly on immediate gratification, but to put off purchases.:!To have only three pairs of shoes, a couple of pairs of pants, etc. This was the way it was before 1960, so if you have any questions about minimalism, ask a senior.
