The frozen foods section of the store contains a lot of “friends” of mine.
Sure everybody has their old friends peas and corn. Maybe they even know carrots and Brussel sprouts too. But I have someone very special in my freezer. In fact a pair of them.
Frozen chopped onions and frozen sliced red/green peppers!
And before you wonder…the only ingredient in the bags.. are chopped onions and chopped red/green peppers. No additives, no chemicals, no nothing.
I think if more people knew about these the price might go up with the demand on the supply. Because did I mention these bags of veggies are cheap too?
Individually quick frozen veggies are great! They are usually picked and frozen at the height of their ripeness. And to be honest this time of year I am paying an arm and a leg for a sub-standard fresh red bell pepper. This is a great solution and great for dinners on the fly!
So here is what I made for dinner this week. Using these simple ingredients.
I sautéed all of this together while I boiled the pasta. Look at those peppers and onions!
I added a jar of red sauce, topped it with some cheese.
Baked in a 350 degree oven until hot, melty and bubbly.
Good to the last bite!
