Once in awhile, I meal prep something so yummy I want to eat it as soon as it comes out of the oven.
That’s what happened with this sausage pasta bake.
I mean, look at this!
Why you’re going to love this sausage pasta bake:
This prep is BY FAR one of my coziest! I had this for lunch the other day and I wish I could have eaten more but felt perfectly satisfied at the same time.
One of the big issues that meal preppers, especially beginners, have is not knowing how to make meals you’ll look forward to during the week.
This, my friends, is one of them.
Like all my recipes, I encourage you to change this meal up and make it your own!
- Other veggie options: mushrooms, chopped asparagus, chopped green beans, bell peppers, peas, brussels, eggplant
- You can use any type of pasta you want. I think penne works best, but it could be plant-based too – doesn’t have to be whole wheat.
- Instead of chicken sausage, feel free to use veggie sausage or any other meat sausage you like.
- If you’re vegan, feel free to use vegan cheese instead of dairy cheese.
Another reason why you’ll love this meal is that it’s freezer-friendly.
This recipe makes four to five servings, and I only needed three. It’s totally cool to freeze any extra servings you get from this meal.
When you want to unthaw the pasta bake, simply put it in the fridge a day before you want to eat it. Then reheat it in the microwave or on the stove like normal.
If you make this meal, don’t forget to share with me on Instagram by tagging @workweeklunch, using #wwlmealpreps or DMing me a snap of your prep!
