  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently (this can also be done in the microwave; use a tempered glass bowl, like pyrex, cook for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth). Remove from heat. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add tofu, onions, and carrot; drain. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl. Add peanut butter mixture; toss gently.

  • Sloppy joes. Taco's and yeah I'll admit it I have used frozen meals but I also used to work like crazy and my husband (who is an amazing man is so many ways) isn't exactly a chef lol. So when I would get home a 7 o'clock I need something that takes less then 15 mins lol. Those TGIF Chicken fajitas or those chicken voila things are awesome.
