Trader Joe’s Pasta Medley: A Quick Supper Idea
Now, before I begin, let me preface the statements I'm about to make with the fact that I'm not a chef, a food critic, or even a casual "foodie," but I want to recommend this food product from Trader Joe's. I can’t say enough great things about the Pasta Medley frozen dish-in-a-bag. It’s good. We think it's really good. We don’t eat a lot of frozen, pre-made foods, but this one is an exception. Veggies and pasta, for $2.49 at Trader Joe’s and it feeds about four people. I add a handful of frozen broccoli to stretch it, and to add more veggies to our plates. We usually have it as a side to grilled chicken or fish.
