Stuff Shells Your Way for Sunday Supper

In the busy business of life, reaching for what you have on hand can be as good (or even better) as a plan ahead specialty meal. For my latest experimental concoction, I pulled out whatever flavors I wanted to include for this make on the fly cannelloni. The only criteria for inclusion was that the ingredient was already in the cupboard or fridge and a taste that I loved. Get all your available/must have ingredients together, stuff into the uncooked pasta shells.

Line up the filled shells in a baking dish, smother with salsa, sprinkle with cheese, bake for 30 minutes, and you have a delicious, grocery store trip free, one pot meal.

Sunday Supper: Zucchini Pasta with Tuna and Tomato

I adapted this recipe from Five and Spice for Zucchini Noodles with Tuna and Tomato. Using thin slices of zucchini instead of pasta is a great way to eat more veggies and half your carbs. Not to mention, absolutely delicious. Be careful to use only a few tablespoons of water when you blanch the zucchini.
Otherwise the water is really difficult to drain out (I ended up broiling mine).
