Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Saving time on weeknights: Pre-cook pasta & Prep side salads ahead

Here are two tips that can save you precious time on those hectic weeknights when everything feels like chaos! On the weekend, make pasta ahead and refrigerate it in a Ziploc bag. It’ll keep for about a week. Heat it up in the microwave before serving. Buy all the fresh lettuce, shredded carrots and cucumbers you will need for the week, wash the lettuce and allow to dry, tear into small pieces add some shredded carrots & chopped cucumbers, store dinner size portions (portions size will depend on the number of people you’ll be feeding) in sealable bowls or zip-bags in the fridge (make sure to dry them very well and it’ll hold for up to 5 days). Instant side salads!
