Being creative with meals 7 nights a week is a huge task. I hope this weekly meal plan inspires you this week with your dinners!
BENEFITS OF MEAL PLANNING
Each week I plan my meals for the following week. This is called meal or menu planning. It really is a simple task that takes 5-10 minutes. The money and time this saves me throughout my week makes it well worth the effort.
Mince Pasta Bake – I have many pasta bake recipes that I make from scratch. However, there are busy weeknights where I am tired, I’m kind to myself use conveniently prepared sauces. I’m OK with that!!
RECIPE: To feed my family of 5, I cook 3 cups pasta (following packet directions), brown 500g mince, add jar pasta sauce and cook until heated through. Stir mince mixture through pasta, pour into a casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese and cook in oven 180C for approximately 20 minutes until browned. Serve with salad or vegetables.
