Notes

  • Cut your time down even more by buying pre-sliced mushrooms.
  • When choosing your pasta sauce, look at the label, don’t go for a variety that has added sugar, and don’t buy kinds with 50 unpronounceable ingredients.
  • We buy Wegman’s Diavola sauce and here’s the ingredient list: Tomatoes (Crushed Tomatoes, Diced Tomatoes, Citric Acid), Water, Onion Puree, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt, Roasted Garlic (Garlic, Soybean Oil), Crushed Red Pepper, Basil. Yup that’s it, sounds like something you’d make at home right? But without the hassle.
  • Fresh greens can mean anything, from spinach to arugula to field greens.
