Quick Meal Idea

I wanted to share one of my favorite meals with you all.

It was so easy and pretty quick (less than 40 minutes).

First things first, the pasta is none other than Pioneer Woman's Baked Lemon Pasta, the green beans are a Sandra Lee recipe and the bread is just parmesan Texas Toast.

Pioneer Woman gives a really easy to follow tutorial on her site for the lemon pasta and it is so fun to make. For the green beans, I don't have a link for you. However, it's so easy a kindergartner could do it (but I don't recommend that). You need:

* a large can - 28 oz - of french-style green beans
* 1 tablespoon of butter
* 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Put the butter in a saucepan and melt over medium heat. Toss in the green beans and heat about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and add in the parmesan cheese and pepper. Stir together and serve.

I told you it was simple! And seriously, the guys ate all of those green beans... I was impressed. Thanks Sandra!

Darn! I wish I would have seen this before supper time tonight. I did, however, make a wonderful butternut and leek soup.
I can't wait until the weather gets colder, I love to make soups and homemade bread and rolls for dinner.
Maybe I need to just check with you every night to see what you're making.
