Making the same turkey sandwich every day can get boring (I know because that's what I used to do for myself every day). So maybe by doing this series, I can not only inspire you to try out some different ideas, but also challenge myself to think up new options for Danny as well. I'm thinking I'll probably do a Brown Bag post about once a week... believe me... the camera is the last thing on my mind at 3:30 in the morning... so I need to give myself some leeway with this :)
Today we have: Quick Angel Hair Pasta
Ingrediants (1 serving of pasta; 1 lemon, handful Kalamata Olives, 2 slices of tomato chopped up, 1/8 cup chopped parsley, pine nuts for sprinkling).
I used some leftover angel hair pasta that we'd had the night before, but I've made this for him a couple times the morning of using penne or rigatoni. Since you're making a smaller portion, the water heats up much faster than if you were making an entire meal for dinner.
Sqeeze juice from half a lemon onto pasta to flavor and moisten. I saran wrap the other half and put it in the lunch for Danny to squeeze on later as well. Chop up 2 slices of tomatoes, half a handful of parsley, and a handful of kalamata olives. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
If you have some on hand, sprinkle on some cheese, or substitute some of the ingrediants for flavors you like more. I usually put in some mozerella and basil but we were out, so I substituted with parsley and kalamata olives that I'd used for 2 seperate recipes earlier in the week.
And there you have it. A quick, healthy, and new option for lunch... and all done in less than 15 minutes. Enjoy!
