Weeknight Recipes

I've said before that I like easily-prepared meals. I've since found some winners. Although neither of the recipes are ridiculously healthy, they both hit the spot!
I found the pasta recipe on Not Martha. I was expecting the pasta to be a little bland, but it was actually really delicious. Plus, the recipe uses kale, so I felt a little healthier eating it.These french fries were yummy, too! I cut up some potatoes and pan-fried them in a little olive oil, adding Italian seasoning, paprika, ground black pepper, and a little salt. I popped them in the oven to get crispier and ate them with soup-- yum :)

What are some of your go-to recipes on weeknights?

i love love love homemade "fries" - but i make mine in the oven - coated in olive oil, salt, pepper, roasted for 20 minutes until bottom is browned, flipped over and roasted until the other side browns too and they're cooked through. then i serve them with a dipping sauce of mayonnaise spiked with vinegar. yum!

I love fries with vinegar! I usually make mine in the oven, too, but I was a little impatient that night..

That pasta looks delicious. Maybe I will have to try that recipe this weekend when I have some extra time. Yum....Thanks for sharing.

I would highly recommend making it. It's pretty inexpensive if you have basics like olive oil, pasta, and garlic already.
