That means that dinner needs to be fast and, of course, delicious too! Springtime is the perfect time for Cooking Light Magazine's annual quick issue - 40 meals in under 40 minutes. This year they out did themselves with main dishes paired with some rotating and out-of-the-ordinary sides
On one of our particularly crazy nights we tried the Soy-Marinated Pork Sandwiches with the Soba Noodle salad.
|Soy-Marinated Pork Sandwiches with Soba Noodle Salad - Cooking Light 4/13|
Wow! What a lot of flavor in a short period of time! It took less than 30 minutes to put together. Hubby, as chief dishwasher, was especially happy with this dish because it didn't even make much of a mess.
|Soba Noodle Salad|
The Soba Noodle salad is chock full of veggies and has a light tasting soy dressing. I put it into Weight Watchers and it comes up at just 4 points for a generous 3/4 cup serving.
The pork sandwiches have a quick sweet and savory marinade and are topped with colorful carrot ribbon quick pickles.
The sandwich with the carrot topping came up to 7 points - all included: bun, pork and carrot topping.
I served it with some melon and it made a delicious and filling meal.
So Cooking Light to the rescue again! A perfect meal for a busy Spring weeknight!
