A deliciously good dinner dish that is whipped up in no time at all!

This dish is one of the best meals for a busy weeknight feed. It’s whipped up in under 15 minutes and takes hardly any effort in the kitchen so it’s ideal for meal prepping throughout the week. If you’re someone who doesn’t feel like making dinner every night, just cook this dish in bulk, pop it in a few containers and leave in the fridge or freezer (depending on how long you want to keep it) to enjoy it throughout the week. While this particular recipe calls for noodles, you can always switch it out for rice if you prefer. Enjoy!
