Pasta Recipe + Meal Prepping!

Hey everyone! I have another new recipe for you! It was great to see the feedback from my last summer salad recipe post. You guys really love that healthy salad as much as I do! This recipe may not be as healthy as that kale and grape salad, but it is just as delicious and can be modified to be more health friendly. It is one of my favorite dishes that my mom always makes when I come home, so I thought I’d try making it in my apartment! I also made extra of everything so I would have it for the first week of school. I have a small meal plan this year, so I’m planning on bringing my lunches mostly everyday. It was super easy to make and great to take on the go! Keep reading to learn what ingredients you need, how to make it, and how I organized the extra food for the week!

What You’ll Need

  • Farfalle pasta
  • Peas
  • Corn
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Ranch dressing
  • Salt (optional)

  1. To start off, simply cook the pasta! (I put salt in the water so it boils faster and that’s good to do when cooking pasta).
  2. Cook the corn and peas (cooked separately and not in the same pot).
  3. Toss together the pasta, corn, and peas.
  4. Once those three ingredients are in a bowl, add in however much ranch you prefer.
  5. Add on some parmesan cheese, again to your own liking.
  6. Mix together and you’re done!!

Time to Meal Prep!

Here’s the part I’ve been excited for. Since it’s a new year, I bought nothing but healthy things at Trader Joe’s. I want to start off on the right foot with meal prepping and knowing exactly what’s going into my food. I brought a ton of tupperware for the apartment, so I split all the extra food into separate containers that are easy to take on the go. All I’ll have to do is add on the ranch and a little parmesan before I leave and I’ll have a fresh lunch! I’m planning on meal prepping on Saturdays or Sundays so I’ll have meals and snacks for the entire week. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up, and I really hope I can to stay healthy!
