pastaA fast and healthy weeknight meal is coming right up! We’ve rounded up a few of our family favorite go-to meals that come together in no time and are sure to please even the toughest critics.

Grilled Cheese to Please

Grilled cheese sandwiches are quick and can serve as a vehicle for sneaking in healthful ingredients. Start with whole-grain bread as the base and add layers of baby spinach, roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and Kraft® Natural Sliced Cheese. Made with fresh milk from U.S. dairy farms, their Provolone Cheese adds a mild smoky flavor to grilled cheese and panini sandwiches and quesadillas. Try it melted over pasta too! Beyond Provolone, their collection of natural cheese includes Pepper Jack, Aged Swiss, Cracker Barrel® Havarti, Asiago and Extra Sharp White Cheddar.

Salad Roll-Ups

Wrap and roll salad greens, veggies and rotisserie chicken, reduced-sodium deli turkey or StarKist® Tuna in a whole-wheat tortilla with light salad dressing or vinegar to create a no-cook meal in minutes. Choose from recipe-ready StarKist® Salmon Creations® Lemon Dill or Mango Chipotle, Gourmet Selects® Thai, Mediterranean or Mexican Style Tuna or Chunk Light Tuna varieties. For the ultimate kid-friendly option, pick up their new Kid’s Tuna Creations™ in Honey BBQ and Bacon Ranch flavors. Adding canned and pouch-packed tuna to meals is a quick and affordable way to get fish into your diet each week.

Build-Your-Own Pizza

Using prepared pizza dough from our deli or whole-wheat pizza crust, English muffins or pita bread, set up an assortment of sauce options, veggie toppers, cubed chicken sausage and Hormel® Turkey Pepperoni for a build-your-own pizza night. It’s fun to mix and match ingredients and dinner will be ready to serve in a flash. Hormel® Turkey Pepperoni delivers the same bold and zesty flavor of regular pepperoni, but with 70 percent less fat per serving. Add it to egg dishes, stuffed peppers and pasta casseroles too.

One-Skillet Pasta

All it takes is one skillet to sauté the veggies and cook the pasta–no colander or extra pot needed! Versatile, butterfly-shaped Barilla® Protein Plus® Farfalle Pasta cooks to a pleasing al dente texture as it soaks up the cooking liquid in our Cheesy Veggie & Pepperoni Skillet Pasta. All ProteinPlus® Pastas including Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Elbows and Penne are made with a unique blend of golden semolina flour, ground flaxseed, spelt, oats, barley and legumes. They supply 40 percent more protein from vegetable-based ingredients than regular pasta, along with whole grains and ALA omega-3s.
