It’s a common theme around here. Busy weeknight. Hungry family. Limited time. All too often, our weeknights go like this. It can be really tempting to order out or pick up something up on the go, but that’s expensive and not always the best for you. Some simple hacks can help you get a meal on the table every night in no time at all. One strategy I use is to meal prep on the weekends and the other is to use meal starters to make cooking faster and easier, without sacrificing on the quality of a home- cooked meal.
This recipe for Chicken Piccata with Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes is literally amazing, and tastes straight out of your favorite Italian restaurant. You only need a few items to get this meal on the table in minutes.
Michael Angelo’s High Protein Meal Starter: Chicken Piccata (Easy to find at Walmart in the Frozen Meal
Spaghetti of Choice
Cherry Tomatoes – 2 cups, halved
1 TBSP EVOO
1 TSP Italian Seasonings
1/3 C. Parmesan Cheese – Freshly Grated
The meal starter kit is best prepped in the oven, but at only 30 minutes cook-time, you can prep the spaghetti, set the table, pour your favorite beverages and be ready for a this amazing dinner. (Note: you can cook in the microwave if need be!)
While the Chicken Piccata is cooking, in the carton, at 400 degrees, with film on, you’ll want to boil your water and cook your pasta to desired consistency. Once drained, add the pasta with a little reserved pasta water to the pot. Add olive oil, salt, pepper to taste, and Italian seasonings. Gently combine.
Add cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese and combine once more.
Once the Chicken Piccata is cooked, serve pasta and chicken piccata family-style.
It’s a fast, delicious meal that is good enough to claim credit for. That’s because Michael Angelo’s meals are premium, slow-crafted authentic Italian meals, inspired by Italian traditions. They contain ingredients that you can actually pronounce and find in your own kitchen – presented in simple, clear labeling. You can find Michael Angelo’s products at Walmart – in the frozen meals section.
These kitchen crafted meals, made with simple ingredients are cooked to perfection, just like their Nonna Foti did. I love that Michael Angelo’s doesn’t make any compromises – using no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, making every bite, full, vibrant and full of flavor. The meals are easy, family favorites that can be served in minutes – pairing perfectly with garlic bread or a fresh salad.
Not cooking for a bunch? I love picking up the Single Serve Michael Angelo’s Meals. The Lasagna with Meat Sauce is my absolute favorite. It tastes authentic and is perfect for when I’m cooking for myself. These are also available right in the same section at Walmart – in the frozen food section.
