Anytime I go to my pilates class I come back late and starving, so I need to fix us a dinner super quickly, and doesn't require to much attendance to have time to do all I have to in the mean time. Psta are great for that: once they're in the boiling water you are free for 10min. And before the water was boiling it gives enough time to prepare the veggies for the side. Recently I found that spinach and shiitake go very well along and I like to serve them with pasta, eggs... The spinach are simply boiled or steamed, the shiitake grilled with a bit of oil (here served with pasta so olive oil). Then I just serve, add olive oil, pepper and ready to eat!!!!!
