I love watching cooking shows. Growing-up I would come home from school, and instead of turning on the television to watch cartoons like a normal child-I would turn on the food network. Shows like Everyday Italian and Barefoot Contessa were my go-to’s, but every once in awhile the show schedules would change and I would get stuck watching (and usually changing) 30-Minute Meals with Rachael Ray. I’ve really got nothing against Rachael Ray, but as a kid I despised this show.
However, now that “adulting” is an everyday occurrence for me I can see how a meal made in 30 minutes is so appealing to people. You work all day just to get home to cook for an hour or more-not that fun. That’s why I love this recipe so much, it takes just 30 minutes to put all together and your result is a fulfilling a delicious meal. Enjoy 🙂
