Freezer Meal Qualifier?
I've wanted to dabble in freezer cooking for so very long, but just don't have the room in the freezers to do so. Well, I suppose I could thaw the stuff, cook it up and refreeze it, but I do believe that's not politically food safe?
So when I can pull stuff out of the freezer and toss it all together with somewhat minimal fuss, I'm so very excited! I sort of, kind of, did a freezer meal!!
This turned out to be a pretty darn good italian dinner that was ready in LESS THAN 30 MINUTES. The time it took to bring the water to a boil and cook the pasta.
Red Sauce (Hubby had made this back in late January I believe)
Salad in a jar (free from Architect at office, they had a catering job and tons of salad leftover from Panera Bread, so they gave me the large bowl)
Frozen (thawed) italian bread with butter and a heavy garlic and herby mix spread over top
And you have a pretty quick yet yummy dinner
Did you know that you can freeze pasta that's already cooked? Just let it cool, put in a ziploc bag (or other freezer safe container) and toss in the freezer. To use, let it thaw and heat up a bit in some hot water and you will be good to go in even less time. Unfortunately, I didn't have any premade stuff in the freezer, but that was ok as everything else was ready to go!
