Baked pasta dishes are great for groups, because they are low-cost, filling and very easy! Plus, I usually have all the ingredients on-hand from weekly sale deals. This one came from taking what I had on hand and tailoring them to work well in a baked version of my favorite pasta, Ziti.
A key with baking pasta, is to way under cook it, I don’t even get mine to “al dente”. It is usually a bit tough to the bite. Then once it cooks in the oven, it is perfect, and not mushy. I don’t care for mushy pasta.
Needing to get a few veggies in? I add things like spinach, caramelized onions, sauteed squash, or whatever I can add that will give it more nutritional value. Head to Faithful Provisions for this recipe.

Looking for an easy, family friendly meal idea? Look no further! This Chicken Fried Rice takes minutes to cook, and is kid approved!
We used some chicken that was seasoned with salt and pepper for today’s meal. It was cooked last week, then we diced it up and froze it. We took it out of the freezer right before preparing the rice, as it didn’t take long to cook it up in the skillet. You can also use a rotisserie chicken for a quick cooked chicken substitute.
My daughter prepared the brown rice first, which only took about 15 minutes total. Once that was finished, she scrambled the egg in the hot skillet. Added the remaining ingredients and cooked it all up until it was hot. Feel free to add your own ingredients for your liking. Carrots and peas would be delicious in this fried rice recipe! Although my kids love the bean sprouts! Head to Shugary Sweets for this recipe.
