With two kiddos to chase and a full plate of family activities, lunch can be the hardest meal for me to make healthier choices. It’s just a lot easier to snack on the kids meals or make something less than stellar because it is easy and quick.
I love grabbing a frozen entree for when I’m short on time and still need want a better-for-myself choice and putting a side of vegetables alongside it. This past week I decided to pair the LEAN CUISINE® Marketplace Spicy Penne Arrabiata with a quick and simple vegetable side dish, Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms for the perfect healthy lunch.
This recipe for garlic roasted green beans and mushrooms is almost as simple and quick as heating a Lean Cuisine. Preheat your oven. Slice the mushrooms and green beans or leave them whole, whatever suits your fancy. Mix olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, toss on veggies. Spread on pan and roast! So easy!
Plus I love the flavor of roasted vegetables! You can get fancy with lots of different kinds of spices, but really the garlic, salt, and pepper can’t be beat. I’m a bit of a salt and pepper snob thanks to my husband. We like to freshly grind ours from Himalayan Pink Salt and Tricolor Peppercorn. That and using fresh, minced garlic help elevate this simple dish to high flavor deliciousness.

Thankfully I recently took advantage of a great deal going on for Lean Cuisine at Target where you can find Lean Cuisine for $1.99 (normally they are $3!). You can find them in the freezer section and let me tell you, I stocked up. And then stocked up again because I ate them before I could photograph them all! (#bloggerfail #butiwashungry) Lean Cuisine has really upped their game with organic ingredient options, gluten-free, and protein-packed choices.
They have some pretty perfect lunch entree options for when you are short and time and want to make a healthier choice! Their Marketplace Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese and Sesame Chicken are two others I am loving for quick & flavorful meals!
