Creating inventive new weeknight meals Monday through Friday can be a daunting task for busy families. But, cooking doesn’t have to be a burden! I had previously only used Knorr Rice Sides as a side dish, and I had been doing so for over a decade. Though a delicious stand-alone side, I never though to combine the creamy, flavorful rice with protein and veggies for a quick meal made easily in one pan.
There’s nothing better than a simple skillet meal (with minimal cleanup), and this dish delivers. Hot, creamy rice topped with salty sausage, sweet tomatoes and fragrant fresh basil. This skillet meal is summer on a plate that warms your belly with every bite!
Knorr Sides are the perfect go-to for inspiring healthy, hearty dinner solutions for busy weeknights. This bruschetta chicken sausage skillet with fresh tomatoes and basil tastes incredible with a big green salad and a glass of crisp white wine! And with just 5 ingredients and 20 minutes needed start-to-finish, this mouthwatering meal is also quick and easy.
What are some of your family’s favorite weeknight dinners? Knorr Sides make delicious meals fast, easy and affordable, while still full of homemade goodness. With the great new 10-for-$10 deal at Meijer, you can discover an inspiring new family dinner idea every night.
