After a long day of work, it can take every last ounce of your willpower not to grab your phone and order up a meal from your favourite restaurant.
But after awhile, those delivery fees can really add up. And if you’re being honest, in the time it takes to wait for your delivery guy to arrive, you could’ve made a home-cooked meal for a fraction of the cost.
Most people have a can of tomatoes on hand, right? To help you get those creative culinary juices flowing, here is a quick roundup of super easy tomato recipes that you can whip up in under an hour.
Baked Gnocchi, Tomatoes and Bocconcini
Pasta is many a young professional’s go-to dinner, but an easy way to mix it up a bit is with your veggies. The addition of peppery arugula and Mutti cherry tomatoes make this gnocchi anything but basic. Recipe here.
This is the perfect “clean out the fridge” meal. Whatever kind of vegetables you have on hand will probably work in this dish. Plus, it freezes well so you can cook up a big batch and portion it into smaller containers so you always have a healthy meal on hand. Recipe here.
Spaghetti balls! (Trust me, these are SO cool). The second video in the series! These were something I had seen for a while online and was craving. When I knew I was getting to work with @mutti_pomodoro to bring you the videos featuring some of their best products, I knew this was a chance to make this fun recipe. This took me a few tries, but it seems to be finally right! If you want to try this yourself, or want to learn more, you can find the recipe on my site! Enjoy! And tag a friend if you think they’d like it too!! #eeeeeats #tasty #yahoofood #iifym #spaghetti #omnomnom #protein #beef #huffposttaste #gastropost #gastronomy #food #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #f52grams #feedfeed #dinner #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #nomnomnom #breakfast
This creative concept turns traditional spaghetti and meatballs on its head. This is certainly not your mom’s pasta, but it’s hard to go wrong with such a classic combination of ingredients. Recipe here.
Cauliflower, Potato and Chickpea Curry
This flavourful Indian-style curry will fill your kitchen with an aroma so delicious, it might be hard to stop yourself from sneaking a few bites before it’s done. Oh, and it just so happens to be vegan and gluten-free. Recipe here.
On those cold winter nights, nothing hits the spot quite like tomato soup. Celery, onions and Mutti diced tomatoes come together for a meal that’s pretty much the definition of comfort food. Serve with grilled cheese croutons for a fun dose of nostalgia. Recipe here.
