Italian Monday!

Every Monday, I have the same thing - spaghetti.  There are a couple of reasons for this.
  1. I like spaghetti.
  2. Having a set meal on certain days, makes my life easier.
  3. Spaghetti supplies are shelf-stable so you bulk up & always have them on hand.
  4. I can't think on Monday's so, planning out a dinner would be a disaster.
  5. If I'm late, my boyfriend can start dinner. :)
  6. Lots of variety with spaghetti - different pasta shapes, different sauces, different add-ins, etc.
  7. I like spaghetti.
So tonight's dinner consisted of traditional Spaghetti with Prego Light Smart Spaghetti Sauce, plus one, 15oz can of Tomato Sauce - I find this is the perfect amount of sauce for one pound of pasta.  I always make one pound of pasta, so I can have leftovers for lunch the next day & sometimes enough for a snack later in the week (depends on how hungry my boyfriend is).  To the sauce I added 1 Zucchini (shredded), 1/2 cup of diced Spinach & 1/2 cup of diced fresh Cilantro (courtesy of my Tupperware Time Saver Chop N Prep Chef).  I also added one can of Black Beans (drained & rinsed).  I threw that all together and topped with a generous helping of Nutritional Yeast (pretend it tastes cheesy).

That's it!

A super simple, quick, no-brainer dinner and now you know what I'm eating every Monday and for lunch on Tuesdays!
