Hello folks.

Are you enjoying the World Cup? I know I have! Even if you are not into football, you look out for the World Cup advertisements. Some are so hilarious, while others resemble a mini movie. Definitely worth looking out for.

With summer and all the football, I need to make meals even easier and faster. So on these warm summer days, I have been cooking quite a fair bit of these noodles with meat sauce.

It’s already a quick and easy to make meal as it is. However, I like to cook up a bigger portion of the meat sauce and refrigerate the leftovers. That way, all you have to do for another (even quicker) meal is boil up some noodles and heat up the sauce. You will be able to serve dinner in less than 10 minutes. It really is all about the prep.

Here, I added some blanched kale and layered it on top of the noodles, followed by the meat sauce. Let me tell you, it’s a great way to eat your kale!

You can use any noodles you like, but I used fine egg noodles here. It also goes well with some vermicelli. I hope you try it!

  2. Meat + noodles = two of my favorite things! This looks so incredibly good and is just packed with flavor! I love how you worked the kale into it. It kind of reminds me of my Italian meat sauce only with different seasonings.
