I had this entire week of Christmas off, so I decided to stock up on freezer meals for Matt. I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to freezer meals for the hubs 🙂 So, Christmas night before he had to leave for WI, I sat him down with Pinterest and told him to look through the board and pick out stuff he’d like me to make next. He chose Chicken Sausage & Pepper Pasta, Bruschetta Chicken Bake, & Shredded Buffalo Chicken.
Both the Pasta & Chicken Bake I found on Kraft. Kraft has some really good & easy recipes! I used to go on their website all the time, until Pinterest came along… but every once in a while I head over there to find some quick & easy meals!
Here’s the original recipe for the pasta dish and here’s what I did:
5 Chicken Sausage; cooked and sliced
1 each red, yellow & green pepper; sliced & sautéed
1 box (8 oz.) Penne Pasta; cooked & drained
2 cans (14 oz) Diced Tomatoes (I used Garlic & Onion, but you can choose), undrained
1 c. Shredded Parmesan/Asiago/Romano cheese blend
1-2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Freezer: Mix everything together in a bowl until combined, place in freezer safe containers & freeze. When ready to eat, thaw & move on to…
Ready to Eat: Prepare a baking dish & preheat oven to 350*. Place pasta in dish, spinkle with cheese (if you want) & bake for 20-25 min. Or, you can just microwave… 🙂
**I was able to fill 6-8 tupperware (I get the Gladware… I think it’s the 2nd smallest rectangle… 🙂 ).
