Who knew that families need to be fed every single night? What is up with that???? Coming up with yummy food that my family will actually eat is an everyday battle but sometimes I feel like I am making it too hard. Kids don’t want the newest food fad. They want delicious familiar flavors presented in a slightly different way. Do I give in to that every night? No. Otherwise we would eat pasta or pizza every night. I do give in to it occasionally, though, and tonight was one of those nights. Thankfully I had lots of yummy ingredients in the fridge to make this easy and delicious skillet dinner.
Many of these ingredients are also in my Italian Sausage Pasta Bake but by making it a skillet dinner, it comes together much faster. Stirring in a handful of spinach would work well if your littles are okay with green stuff in their pasta (mine is not). You could also add any other vegetables you would like such as onions, green peppers, etc. I also think a handful of sliced pepperoni would turn this into pizza pasta quite easily. Serve with a salad and a piece of garlic toast and you have a complete meal on the table in well under an hour.
