One thing you should know about me is that I am a totally suggestive eater. Meaning if I read a story that talks about pizza, I suddenly crave pizza. If I see a commercial for burgers, I want a juicy double decker with extra pickles. It is a tough life! Anyway, I digress…so the other night I had everything out for Orange Chicken, one of my family’s favorite meals, and then I see an Olive Garden commercial. I don’t even really like Olive Garden, but I love pasta. And so naturally the chicken went back into the fridge for the next day, and I stared defrosting ground beef and sausage, and started chopping vegetables.
I love a great homemade marinara, and will share one of my favorite recipes soon, but because good marinara from scratch takes at least 24 hours, and usually involves a lot of time, I keep Prego on hand. It is my favorite. All you Prego haters, go ahead and just keep on enjoying whatever marinara you like, I won’t judge (much!). So my disclaimer is that this recipe uses a pre-made marinara. This is Eazy Peazy Mealz after all.
