Freezer pasta meal #1

Standard

First freezer pasta meal of Orange Chicken Stirfry down the hatch – success!  After thawing the pasta bag in water, I heated my, way to small, wok with 2 tsp oil.  I tossed into the oil 1/3 cup thinly sliced onions, 1 large sliced red pepper, 1 bag frozen broccoli, and 1 can of chicken.  When heated through, I added  1 cup frozen peas, 1 can of mandarin oranges (including juice), and 1 T. Orange Ginger wok sauce.  For the final step, I tossed in the 8 oz. whole wheat pasta.

Meal success is measured in different ways.  In our home, I measure success by clean plates or more simply quiet face stuffing.  Tonight, TOUCH DOWN!  Plus there are left overs for lunch!
