Quick & fresh dinner!

Angel hair with garlic, basil & tomatoes, croissants with ham & swiss & chickpea salad:

This dinner you can literally just throw together. These are ingredients you already have on hand.

Angel hair pasta
cherry tomatoes halved
2 garlic cloves chopped
salt/pepper to taste
olive oil
parmesan cheese
chopped fresh basil leaves

Cook angel hair according to directions & toss with desired amounts of above ingredients.
Serve with ham & cheese croissants. Simply cut pieces of ham & cheese & roll up in a refrigerated croissant. Cook on baking sheet at 350 degrees until browned on top. My family LOVED these & how quick & simple!!!

I served these with a chickpea salad. Easy using the same ingredients as in the pasta, just toss with some canned chickpea beans.

Basil chopped
garlic clove chopped
cherry tomatoes halved
mini cucumbers cut into penny sizes
vinegar to taste
olive oil to taste
dash of honey
salt & pepper to taste

So quick to throw this all together!!! I didn't put measurements because you can just toss what you have together, wallah the quick & easy part. Just an idea for a fresh & quick dinner that everyone, including kids love! Enjoy~
