Easy Recipe for Dinner: Spaghetti in scallop and Marinara Sauce

Looking for some easy dinner ideas for a weeknight than this recipe is a solution to it. You can describe this recipe as - Super easy, fast, and delicious!!! This recipe is spicy yet yummilicious.

If I talk more about dinner ideas and menus, then I personally prefer to eat healthy and light food in night and a whole-grain pasta or spaghetti is always a good option for it. Red sauce or a sauce which is made from tomatoes contains less-fat or no fat as compared to the white ones. It’s easy to digest and if you like spicy tangy flavors then you will surely enjoy this recipe. Tomatoes are beneficial for our body; as they are sweet, juicy, and delicious and contains vitamin C in it. It is also a good source of Vitamins A, C, K, folate and potassium. On top of that, one serving of tomatoes can gives you 2 grams of fiber, which is 7% of the daily recommended amount. Tomatoes also have a relatively high water content, which makes them a filling food. So, if you are planning to reduce some weight tomatoes can surely help you here.

Talking about this recipe; this pasta recipe is really simple one. And it can be made within 30 minutes i.e. including the preparation and cooking time. In this recipe I am adding some scallops as well to make this recipe not just healthy but super yum too.

Let’s not waste any further time and start cooking –

When you have friends and family come together just to watch some soccer game – Live. It’s like a grand event at your place. And if you are an American whether you love soccer or not, it’s still hard to avoid. Soccer is not about sitting on your food table and grazing food. But it’s all about Finger Food! And in this I love to serve chips and dippers with my favorite dips.

Anyways today I was in mood to indulge while eating. So I decided to make Chicken Jalapeno Dip. Different from any regular chicken recipes; jalapeno dip is an addiction.

The spicy taste of jalapeno, bell pepper and Tabasco sauce makes it really spicy and lip-smacking dip recipe to be served. But don’t worry about its heat, it can be adjusted as per your wish. Even kids love this recipe. So, without wasting any more time; lets jot down this disappearing chicken dip recipe, ingredients first and then the method.

Cooking Tips for the Singletons

Cooking for singles isn’t easy, in fact is it’s costly. We rarely get food items sold is smaller proportions and in the time of credit crunch it’s not affordable. So, what can we do? Well, Bulk cooking is one of the solution to this problem.
In bulk cooking, you can make recipes in a bulk and later store them in the refrigerator. It will not just save time but it is an easy method too. Here, you can try some easy recipes like stews and curry recipes which can be stored easily and you can have it later by just reheating the food. Believe me it’s better than frozen foods which are available in the market.
Another thing that you can try is, make some nice hearty soups for you. Soup recipes are not just healthy and nourishing but it’s super easy to make too. Just boil some veggies, chicken or chili (beans) together or blend or you can also have the way they are i.e. if you like chunky pieces in your soup. You can store soups too, and again they are better than canned soups or prepackaged soups.
What else one can do?
