I'm always looking for quick meals because my family is always on the go! I get a lot of ideas from Kraft foods online. Got any you want to share?

  • Casseroles are always good and quick to prepare. They always take about 30-40 minutes in the oven though. If you are interested in some recipes message me and ill get you some. GL

  • tacos, spaghetti, I love putting a simple stroganoff in the cockpot (1 min of prep!) and then having it ready for dinner.

  • Pasta with tomato cream sauce. Put 3-4 cups pasta (penne) on to boil. When half way done start this sauce.....saute 1t of minced garlic in a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Add in this order - 1 can diced tomatoes drained, 2t tomato paste (from a tube), 3-4 sundried tomatoes cut up, 1/2 cup cream. After it is hot combine with pasta.

  • I meant to say I also like the sauce without the cream for a quick tomato sauce.

  • Pasta with Finger-Licking Peanut Sauce
    1/2 cup low or no sodium vegetable broth
    1/4 cup chunky peanut butter (I use smooth)
    1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
    2 teaspoons chile paste with garlic (add to taste, it is pretty spicey)
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    8 ounces uncooked whole wheat angel hair
    1 pound firm tofu, drained and cubed (optional)
    1 cup (2-inch) sliced green onions
    1 cup shredded carrot
    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 g
