Then I had an idea!!!!!
Garlic? Of course. I always have my favorite freeze-dried garlic on hand.
Cottage Cheese? Check
This was perfect because A) it was hot and B) I didn't really feel like cooking and this was quick and tasty.
All I had to do was cook the spaghetti, then briefly stir-fry the tomatoes, garlic and basil.
I drained the spaghetti, tossed it into the wok with the tomato basil mix, stirred in the cottage cheese to warm, and serve.
I also happened to have a fabulous multi-grain baguette to go with it. I could have added a salad, but I didn't. ;)
There you have it - carbs, veggies, and protein in about ten minutes.
So what are your go-to meals in a hurry? Isn't it nice to have Yankee Belle friends like Mary Connealy to fall back on in an emergency?
