Family meals are an important part of family life. They allow everyone to come together, helping to strengthen relationships, self-esteem, and understanding. They also help parents ensure children (or sometimes other adults!) are eating a healthy, varied diet. Here at NetCost Market, we want to encourage families to eat together, which is why we’ve got three great recipes for quick and easy family dinners using ingredients from our Weekly Specials, helping you save both money and time! You can find all our weekly special deals right HERE.
One-pot meals are the best for feeding the family. They’re quick and easy, and once they’re cooking you can use the time to set up the dining area or to relax and watch some TV. The whole family will love this one-pot wonder, and this week we have a selection of Barilla paste for 99c a box and Botticelli Premium Pasta Sauces for only $1.99 per jar!
Ingredients: 2-3 boneless chicken breasts – diced into bite-sized pieces, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, ½ tsp garlic powder, 1 yellow onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 box of Barilla Pasta of your choice – we recommend mini penne or ziti, 1 jar of Botticelli Premium Pasta Sauce of your choice – we recommend marinara, water, 1 cup mozzarella, ½ cup parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste, minced fresh basil or oregano for garnish.
Carrots are full of wonderful vitamins and minerals that make them one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat! They contain unique vitamins K1 and beta carotene, helping to promote healthy bones and blood circulation. Unlike some other vitamins out there, beta carotene is actually absorbed more easily once the carrots are cooked. This recipe is a great source of healthy vitamins and minerals for your family, and as we currently have Premier Baby Carrots on sale for only 99c per lb., it’s also a meal that won’t break the bank!
Ingredients: 1 packet of Premier Baby Carrots, 1 medium potato, 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, 1 medium onion – peeled and chopped, 1 clove garlic – peeled and crushed, ½ cup dry white wine (optional), 1 quart vegetable broth, salt, pepper.
It’s a good idea to have something quick, easy, and healthy on hand for dessert. This will stop the family reaching for those sugary snacks after dinner! This classic British dessert is quick and easy, using healthy Greek yogurt and fruit preserves. At NetCost Market, we are currently offering Chobani Greek yogurts at 79c per pot, and Gourmanoff Preserves for only $3.49 per 600g jar!
Ingredients: ½ cup cold heavy cream, 1 cup Chobani Greek yogurt – your choice of flavor but we recommend plain, ½ cup Gourmanoff Preserves – the fruit of your choice.
