My 15-minute Meal

by in View All Posts, November 18th, 2008

So, I’m a mom of an 11-month-old and a 4-year-old, and I work full-time and still have to feed everyone and pack lunch.

Here’s my go-to 15 minute meal (even 30 minutes is too long!) that feeds the whole family and can go to preschool with my daughter for lunch:

Take 1 (32-ounce) box organic low sodium chicken broth and bring it to a boil in a saucepan. Add 1 cup alphabet pasta and cook. Chop up about a cup of spinach leaves (or just use frozen spinach) and add it to the pasta to wilt.

At this point, I remove a cup or so for my 11-month old, since he can’t have whole eggs yet. Beat up an egg or 2 and add some grated parm. While soup is boiling, drizzle in the egg mixture and boil another minute. Ta-da! Dinner, lunch, and we can work on letters while we eat it.
