Delicious and Ready in 5 Minutes?!

Welcome to a Foodie edition of The Cherry On Top.

Here, at The Cherry we are all about easy and healthy or healthy-ish.  This meal is whipped up in about 5 minutes.  It fills the gut and is totally kid friendly, too.

Often when we make pasta, we make extra and keep it in the refrigerator without sauce, for future use.  You can throw it in a salad, cold or heat it up with some sautéed veggies or even drizzle some olive oil over it and add dried Italian herbs and a dash of garlic salt for a quick tummy filler.

I had this lovely spiral pasta left over.  I heated a pan, added a pack of cream cheese, stirred until melted, added the pasta and some tuna and cooked until heated through.  Then sprinkled some fresh window herbs, salt pepper and was ready to eat.  You could use some chicken or just about anything in there.  Salmon would be lovely!


 For a healthier meal, you could substitute quinoa pasta or wheat pasta.


A sprinkle of fresh parmesan over the top would be yummy, too.

There ya go!  Another meal made on the fly.

Bon appetit!
