Everyone needs more 30 minute meals. Life is getting busier, and we are running out of time all over the place. Is this a self imposed busyness? Who knows. But whatever it is, we don’t have time, and at least for us, finding time for a quick dinner is becoming harder to come by.
This is the second recipe I have made from Heather Christo’s new cookbook Pure Delicious. And as I was scrambling to find something to make, I realized I was short a few ingredients, but I made a few substitutions based on what was in the pantry. And you know what, if this recipe is THIS good with these simple subs – it is INCREDIBLE as written.
See what changes I made for this meal – that was done in, wait for it, 25 minutes!
We are on a mission to eat our way through our pantry staples in the house. We are over brimming with multiple jars and cans of the same thing, because I am terrible at the whole “check what you have before you buy more” game. *eye roll*
So now that I have four cans of garbanzo beans, three jars of pasta sauce, five cans of tuna, and 2 bags of flour with two open in my cupboard – it’s time for a serious purge. The delightful thing is, when I saw this recipe, I had nearly everything to make it – or well the right things to substitute to widdle down my stores a little bit.
Heather’s original recipe calls for white cannellini beans, but garbanzo beans were substituted for easy. And since I couldn’t get my mitts on mustard greens, I used spinach. This recipe turned out absolutely perfect and I can’t wait to make it again.
If you haven’t seen the other pasta recipes I made from Heather’s book – check it out! It’s another staple in my lunch rotation now.
