My son loves to nosh on pasta, my husband is a fan of meat and this recipe takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, which makes this dinner a win win for the whole family! This recipe is great for sneaking in whole grain pasta since the sauce is thick and flavorful and will cover up the flavor if your kids are not usually a fan of the healthier carb.
My older sister Rivky lives in Florida and juggles taking care of her energetic (and adorable!) three sons while working full time. She is probably the only person I know who can whip up shabbos meals two hours before candle lighting and still fit in making home baked brownies! When I need a dinner that is quick and tasty, she is on my speed dial of who to call (along with my sister Tova and certs!) The following is a delicious blend of pasta, sauce and tender chicken that wont leave room for dessert.
- Pasta such as fettuccine or spaghetti (whole wheat, whole grain or white can be used)
- 1 large can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano
- 1 small can of tomato sauce
- Chicken breast cut into pieces
- 1 onion chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic diced
Cook the pasta as directed on the box. While the pasta is cooking saute the onions and garlic. Once that has browned add the pieces of chicken and cook until white and no longer pink. Once that has cooked add the can of tomatoes and the tomato sauce. Then combine with the pasta and mix well.

I heart pasta. It is definitely the carb that is hardest for me to resist! I like all sorts of pastas however when I am craving it and don’t have much time to spend in front of the stove, this is a quick and easy recipe that helps satisfy the craving.
- Pasta of your choice (for cheesy recipes I like using elbow or rotini shaped because they grab the cheese and get it to stick!)
- 1 can of tomato sauce with Basil, Garlic and Oregano. (this is a great tasting sauce and not as heavy as the marinara sauces. It’s also cheaper!)
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta in a pot. Once it is prepared and the water has been drained, add the tomato sauce and Mozzarella cheese. Allow it to melt and then when you serve sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese.
The first photo is before it was cooked, the following one is after it was cooked:
1 package of lasagna noodles
1 jar of marinara sauce
container of mushrooms
1 package of frozen spinach
1 yellow onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 small container of ricotta cheese
1 package of mozzarella cheese
2 9×13 pans
Prepare lasagna noodles by following the directions on the box. Slice the mushrooms, onion and garlic and saute in a pan with some olive oil. Prepare the spinach as directed on box. When the mushroom mixture and the spinach are ready, combine in a bowl with the ricotta cheese, half the bag of mozzarella, and the egg. Once the noodles have been cooked, lay them out individually and spread some of the spinach/cheese mixture onto each one. Then roll them up, pour some sauce on top and cover with remaining mozzarella. Pour some sauce on the bottom of the pan, then place the roll ups in the pan, cover and bake on 350′ for about 45 minutes.
