Dinner in 15 Minutes! Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Triangolis with Spinach, Crimini Mushrooms and Parmesan Cheese

Published in: Daily Photo

You know I love me some Trader Joe’s. This 15-minute meal for two, which uses ingredients all found at TJ’s, is my new fave semi-homemade dinner.

Cook a package of Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Triangolis according to directions. When the Triangolis are just about done, drain them in a colander, reserving some of the pasta water.

Chop sliced crimini mushrooms; saute in olive oil.

Add fresh spinach along with a little bit of the reserved pasta water.

When the spinach is just about wilted, add the Triangolis into the pan along with more pasta water; gently mix everything together. Place on plates and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Note: if there’s meat eaters in the mix, you can modify by adding cooked Italian sausage.

To round out the meal, I also like adding Trader Joe’s Country Italian Salad as a side, swapping out the dressing that comes with it (a little too oily and heavy for me) with TJ’s Fat Free Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Bon appetit!

    Perhaps add some pinenuts or almonds for protein? Or some grilled chicken breast? I know I feel hungry if I don’t have enough protein in my meals. Just a thought!
