Cook some Sausage until it is done.

Add in some cooked peppers, and onions.

Put all that on top of some rice.

abjcooking,

I have spaghetti on the brain today - I really like your spaghetti wrap ups recipe. I tried to do the karma thing for/to you, but it isn't working for me (I click on the give karma link and the first post in this thread is displayed) . So, here's my thanks:
Thanks! My family will like this. Sandy

Hi Chrizzle, welcome to our DC family

Salads are really easy, you can keep them as simple or complex as you like, and as I've found they give you a lot of leeway to be creative. The same really goes for soups too, especially if you just start with a vegetable stock (no need for meat bones) and build the soup up from there.

I have a question which will help in picking a few recipes I have in mind. What time do you get home in the evening and how much time from there do you have before dinner should be served?

Here is an easy recipe that I just saw on Real Simple (the PBS show)

Real Simple Lasanga

20 oz bag of frozen cheese ravioli
jar of spaghetti sauce (I use Muir Glenn)
10 oz box of frozen, chopped spinach, defrosted and wrung dry
2 C moz cheese

Spray a 10 x 10 pan with Pam Spray. Preheat oven to 375.
Place 1/3 C sauce in the bottom of the pan.
Place frozen cheese ravioli on top of the sauce to form a uniform layer.
Sprinkle the spinach on top of the ravioli (I only use half of the package).
Next sprinkle with a handful of cheese.
Add more sauce, another layer of ravioli and the rest of the sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese ontop.
Cover with aluminum foil tightly and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and continue to bake 10-15 more minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

One more easy one -

Feta Chicken

2-3 boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin
2-4 slices of feta cheese
fresh basil leaves (can used dried basil instead)
1 T olive oil
salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375
Spray baking dish with Pam spray.
Pound the chicken breasts thin, add a layer of feta cheese and one fresh basil leaf (or a sprinkle of dried basil) and roll them up, securing with a toothpick.
Place into baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
Bake for approx 30 minutes or until breasts look done.

I serve this with rice pilaf and a greek salad.
