This is a vegetarian 20 minute meal if you decide to omit the Parmesan cheese. It is your choice. All you need to do is simmer the mushroom and the red onion together. Add a little water, sun-dried tomato sauce, pepper, garlic paste and finish simmering while you pop the fettuccine into a boiling pot of water. 4 minutes my friends for the fettuccine to boil and take it out, drain and toss into your simmering mushrooms and onion sauce. Serve with crusty garlic bread and watch your family smile. 

Saucy Red Onion Chicken Strips

Grilled chicken strips, red onion and chives are tossed into a homemade sauce of 1/2 cup of ketchup, 1 cup of water, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of garlic paste. I allowed it all to simmer for 20 minutes while I made the brown rice and the fries. A perfect meal in 20 minutes because I have other things to do, right?

Sun-dried tomato, mushroom, onion ranchero pasta shells is the perfect meal for us. It takes 20 minutes to make and it is vegetarian. I’ve been trying to include more vegetarian meals these days.

Sun-dried tomato fajita chips with bacon, hash browns, peppers and cheese

These chips were made by using sun-dried tomato fajitas cut into wedges. I added chunks of pizza cheese, hash brown, crumbled bacon, peppers and Mozzarella cheese. I sprinkled green onion on top and baked it for about 25 minutes. It made the perfect lunch time snack. 

Pasta Bake

This pasta bake was made with colored cheese tortellini. I added a Mozzarella cheese sauce with cracked black pepper, onion and garlic powder, and covered it with bread crumbs and more Mozzarella cheese and chives. You'll only need about 20 minutes for this to cook and you can serve it as a side or as the whole meal if you feel like it.
