Quick and Healthy Dinner for One

Hubby had to work late last night so I was on my own for dinner. We didn’t do our weekly meal planning and grocery shopping, so I had to throw some stuff together. I got inspiration from a recipe from Allrecipes.com. This was a great meal that literally took 5 minutes to make and kept me full all night. And it was really healthy!!


Goat Cheese / Pesto / SDT open face sandwich
2 pieces whole grain bread
1 oz Goat Cheese
~2 Tbsp pesto
Sun dried tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350. While oven is heating, assemble sandwiches.

Put a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet. Place bread on foil and spread cheese on bread. Spoon on pesto (as much or little as you like). Top with sun dried tomatoes.

Bake for 5 minutes until heated.


Quick steamed Squash
1 summer squash – cubed
1 tsp olive oil
seasoning of your choice – I used Mrs Dash chicken grilling seasoning

Put everything in a microwave bowl and heat for 60 seconds. Stir and heat 60 more seconds.

    Yum! My coworker used to make something very similar to these and I would chow down on them 🙂 Thanks for participating!

    Yum! When no one is around, I dip pretzels into the Nutella jar my husband keeps in the pantry. These sound like they would be just up my alley! What a fun idea too – will have to try these with the kids sometime.
