Spaghetti with meatballs. I don't make it the same way every time, the meatballs, that is, but they usually include Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, tomato paste, an egg, and various other seasonings, including lots of red pepper flakes - we like them a bit spicy. :)

My quick go-to is pasta with veggies. Lately I've been getting the pasta side dishes that Lipton makes and putting veggies with them and getting some very happy girls. But a lot of times, it's just rotini put on to boil, and while it boils I cook some spinach, onion, & mushrooms in a little olive oil, then throw in a can of tomatoes, and once the pasta is drained we toss it with a tiny bit of parmesan. SO yummy.

Hahahah, hey, you just reminded me I forgot to take something out of the freezer for dinner tonight. See, who says Cafemom is not good for the home? Bahhh

My favorite fall back is noodles with chicken and something green. As in a veggie, not green chicken.

I LOVE chicken.

Tonight I'm going to make cheese burger macaroni. My husband made it up. We cook a package of mac & cheese, then add browned ground turkey. A can of well-drained plain diced tomatoes, some chopped onion, and a little dill relish are mixed in. The girls like it with a little drizzle of ketchup on top (like a cherry).

I think I will try the Creamy Crockpot Chicken on Friday evening.  I'm going to use fat free cream cheese and fat free/low sodium cream of chicken soup for it though, I'll let y'all know how it tastes!
