I'm still recovering from December.

I'll full on admit it.  Our holiday celebrations were long and drawn out, we traveled around, a bout of sickness hit our youngest {which in turn put me way behind in many areas} and already our kids have a day off of school this Friday.

Didn't they just go back?

But finally, THIS WEEK, I'm getting back on my game.  I'm finally focusing on what I'm eating {versus having peanut clusters for breakfast like I did last month} and my new planner {you can buy mine HERE , use code SWEETSAVORY10 for 10% off} is getting filled with meal plans and practical to-do lists.

I'm back on my game.

Did you set any goals for 2019?  Or pick a "word of the year"?  It's super popular to do in January and I'm cool with that.  I think it's good!  Why not have a goal?

I recently had someone ask me, in front of a table of others, "what is your New Year's resolution that you'll break in 5 days?"

Hmm. Interesting.

I'm not sure if the comment was genuine or not, but it did get me thinking.  I didn't want to pick a goal that was super easy to break {like losing 5 pounds by tomorrow}.  Instead I choose to just work on my blog in 2019.

Work on your blog?  I'm sure many of you are already thinking I do that....and I do....but I want to build it, increase my followers, bring you more and use my time on it more wisely.  Like this pasta dish!

I wanted my first few recipes of this year to be something my readers NEED.  Recipe #1, my Loaded Healthy Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos, really are an easy prepped food that CAN HELP YOUR LIFE.

Recipe #2, this 10-Minute Tomato and Garlic Whole Wheat Spaghetti again, is a dish that CAN HELP YOUR LIFE.  

I don't know about your family, but we currently have three sports going on between two of our kids.  I need my meals to be planned, intentional and easy.  Recipe #1 fit that bill and recipe #2 certainly fits that bill.  January is a much busier month than many people think.

This year I want to make sure my recipes in 2019 have better timing.  Do I have a great, over-the-top chocolate cake that I'm dying to share?  Yes, I do.  Is it the right time to showcase it?  Probably not.  While we all want to sink our teeth into that decadent splurge, for many of us it's not going to happen.

We just ate ALL THAT STUFF last month.

January is a detox month for many {don't worry I'll bring that cake back around Valentine's Day}.  These first two recipes for the year have been about healthy and ease.

Healthy for obvious reasons and ease for all us Moms who are scrambling through these winter sports while simultaneously trying to feed our humans.

Let me tell you THIS.

I started this recipe at 9:07 a.m. and it was finished by 9:16 a.m.  If you're doing the math that is less than 10 minutes!  And yes, I often make savory, dinner style dishes at odd times of the day for a few reasons.

1 ---- > The natural light is better in the morning in the winter for photography purposes.
2 ---- > It's the time of the day when I have the least amount of people in my house.
3 ---- > I'm weird and cook when I want.

I'll be honest.  I wasn't quite sure if I could tackle this quick dish in just 10 minutes {is that really possible?}, but the sauce is just three main ingredients and the angel hair pasta cooks up super quick.  It can be done!

And let me tell you.....the aroma that fills your house is like angels singing.

I like this quick dish for so many reasons.  You can easily make it a lunch or a dinner.  Kids and adults both love it.  It's made with whole ingredients and healthier whole wheat spaghetti.  It can be fancied up for a more formal dinner by adding a side salad and a hunk of crusty bread.  

Do you want me to keep going?  Because I can.

I love this dish.

Tonight my kids have youth group right after school.  Then once they get home from youth group we have about 45 minutes before the oldest and the husband head off to batting practice for baseball.  Normally, 45 minutes to cook, serve and eat dinner might not be enough time but with this simple dinner it's fine!

More than enough time.

If you make this fun, simple dish soon please let me know!  Tag me on social media {@sweetsavoryeats} and I'll be sure to comment and share.  

Cheers to a great 2019.
