It’s time for another quick and easy weeknight supper! Stuffed bell peppers: who doesn’t love them? My kids don’t necessarily love the pepper part, but they will eat the inside. I always make sure to include a side they will enjoy as well. These peppers are so incredibly easy, and I can give you a few hacks as well to make it even easier.

First of all, traditionally I see most stuffed peppers being green, but I use the fun colors. I love yellow peppers best personally, so I usually grab one of each color. You can absolutely use whichever color you prefer. My kids aren’t eating the pepper anyway, so I go for pretty colors in my pan. Speaking of the pan, I use a 9x13 Pyrex and I take foil and make little foil bowls to set the peppers down in, so they don’t fall over and make a mess during baking. That’s definitely not a necessity, but I like to do it in case one was to fall as well as it makes clean up easier also…

I also use minute rice. I can stick it in the microwave when I see the meat is about done and its warm and ready to go into the mixture. Again, use whatever you prefer, I just don’t have time for all the steps most days!!

Hope you enjoy this week’s recipe!

This week we’re serving up stir fry. It is so simple and so delicious. I’m sure by now y'all have noticed a trend with my cooking; simple & easy. So, this one is no different!

There are several little hacks that you can use to make it even easier. If I’m in a hurry, and have it on hand, I will use frozen stir fry vegetables instead of actually chopping up fresh bell peppers. I like to keep bags of the frozen bell peppers and onions on hand for a quicker and easier stir fry because I don’t always have the time and I also don’t always have the fresh produce! So, frozen will be just as good.

Also, I have used beef stew meat for this recipe as well. Again, if I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to mess with cutting up the meat, I will grab something on hand already cut up!

This one really doesn’t take much time and its full of flavor…Let it simmer a little longer if needed to really soak up the sauce and serve over rice!

I love a good lasagna, or pretty much any Italian dish for that matter, but rarely have time to actually make something from scratch. I think I’ve burnt my family out on the frozen Stouffer’s ones over the years as well, so this recipe is a great compromise. It’s quick and easy and has all the flavor you would expect a good lasagna to.

I tend to have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe, so it’s great for a night you don’t have something planned. You can use any marinara sauce you prefer and I’m sure it would work with other types of noodles as well. The bowties give it more of a lasagna feel, but I wouldn’t think different noodles that you may already have on hand would ruin anything!

I serve it with a green salad and some type of garlic bread. You can throw everything together in about 30 mins or less and have a delicious weeknight meal that is quick and easy!
