I’m excited to launch this new series of recipes called ‘Easy Weeknight Meals’. This is a collection of my midweek throw in the pan concoctions that have worked well and I decided to share them with you to inspire you to get over that midweek hump and get cooking!

I’m making something my grandma simply called Chow. It’s a really quick recipe if you can even call it that – basically you toss together some meat protein together with veggies & boiled eggs with Sphagetti and ketchup. It certainly started out and being something that was made for the kids to enjoy, but adults can’t help chowing down on it either.

I surveyed the pantry and have a ½ pepper, some mushrooms, some super greens spaghetti, celery, hot sauce, some frozen peas, ketchup, some turkey sausage, some precooked chicken breast, an onion, green onions, garlic, an egg,

To save time, it is a busy weeknight I’m going to boil my eggs and the pasta together. I’m going to give my eggs a 5 min head start and then I will also add the sphagetti. Cook the pasta till it’s all dente. I’ve add 150 of pasta and I’m going to wait till it softens and slides into my pot.

I like recipes that allow you time to do prep in between so while my egg, spaghetti and peas cook, I like to prep all my veggies and meat protein. In the recipe I’ve listed all the ingredients I had available but you can switch up these ingredients very easily.

All the protein & veggies are then cooked and tossed together with the cooked spaghetti and ketchup – such a simple and delicious meal!
