I heard your back to school calls for help. Your exasperated sighs. The shrieks of ‘What am I going to feed the kids between their homework and soccer?!’
Forget fretting, I am here for you. My friend Andrea told me that she calls this meal ‘Linner’. You know, the meal that needs to be more than a snack but not a huge meal. It needs to be quick, easy to transport and keep the kids going during soccer, dance or gymnastics.
Personally, I think that this Hard-Boiled Egg Sandwich with Spinach & Sprouts is an amazing option but I know you want more ideas and so I present Potato Gnocchi & Mozzarella.
1 bag of frozen potato gnocchi
8 ounces or so of mozzarella balls or chunks
2 cups or so of your favorite marinara sauce
Fresh basil, torn
1. Bring water to boil and cook the potato gnocchi according to the package instructions.
2. Meanwhile, warm up the marinara if you wish and place in four separate bowls/container and add in the mozzarella.
3. Drain the gnocchi and mix with the mozzarella and sauce.
Okay my friends, you may put away the blocks now as I have rescued you.
Would you call it Linner, Dinner #1 or Dinner #2?
