everything you've got pasta bowl

It's Friday! I'm not as excited as I should be though, since it's calling for rain all weekend and that will really put a damper on my bike race training. Good thing I can still go to back-to-back spinning classes at the gym!

Last night I got home after a long day in Kingston to not much food in the house. I usually resort to picking at random things (cereal, crackers, veggies) but last night I summoned up my energy and made some pasta!

Everything You've Got Pasta Bowl
2 servings

Your favourite whole wheat pasta (enough for two large servings)
Tomato sauce (I had some in the freezer) about 2 cups
1/2 can lentils (drained and rinsed)
A few handfuls of spinach
Frozen broccoli
Herbs and/or a spoonful of jarred pesto
Parmesan cheese
Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste
Plus- anything else you have in your fridge! Veggies (e.g. tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, asparagus), different cheeses (goat cheese or feta perhaps), proteins like shrimp or chicken. 

Cook pasta, warm sauce and toss in veggies until cooked through.


I even had leftover energy to go for a run! I had to enjoy the last sunny day of the week...

What do you do to stay active on rainy days?
