Time. Sometimes there just isn’t enough of it! I remember the days when our kids would come home from school, pile in the car, and I spent the next several hours carting them from one activity to another. We would walk back in the door at dinner time and everyone was hungry, then I would scramble to figure out what to make. I wish I had a blog I could refer to back then that would have told me how to make a fantastic, filling dinner in 20 minutes. Luckily you have the internet…and me!
The following pasta dinners are all quick, budget friendly, delicious, and not one of these recipes uses hamburger or jarred pasta sauce! 10 Pasta Dinners In 20 Minutes or Less!:
