Notes

as a single mom who works full time, i need to have meals that are not only quick and easy to prepare, but also healthy. i love that trader joe's has these noodles that you don't need to boil!!! to make this microwaveable noodles and sauce package into a real meal, add healthy protein and veggies... you may try this also with cooked chicken breast (perhaps your leftover from the day before!)
