College Cooking: Part 1

As a college student there are two things I don't like about cooking: the time and the mess. After about 4 years of dishes after dishes I got a little crafty and came up with simple, healthy (and quick!) meals that are not only satisfying, but delicious and are a much better option than your questionable dining hall food or midnight McDonalds run. Try out this menu:

Breakfast: Sausage-Spinach Egg White Omelet

What you need: (Feel free to substitute and play with these ingredients)

- Egg Beaters Egg Whites
- Baby Spinach
- Sausage Crumbles
- Mexican Shredded Cheese
- Mushrooms (optional)
- Hot Sauce (optional)

What you do:
1. Spray a small pan with cooking spray.
2. Pour egg beaters into pan.
3. While eggs are still liquid sprinkle in sausage, spinach, mushrooms and cheese.
4. Let it cook. When edges start to cook, flip omelet. (I like to turn this into scrambled eggs of a sort.)
5. Cook until done. (Like 3 minutes.)
6. Take off heat, put omelet on plate and cover with hot sauce if desired!

Lunch: Caprese Panini

What you need:
- mozzarella slices
- tomato slices
- basil (shredded)
- wheat bread
- sandwich press

What you do:
1. Spray sandwich press with non-stick spray.
2. Place one slice of bread on the press.
3. Cover slice of bread with tomatoes and mozzarella alternately.
4. Sprinkle with basil leaves.
6. Place other slice of bread on top and close sandwich press.
7. Cook for 3-7 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
(I like to eat this with sunchips or kale chips!)

Dinner: Whole Wheat Pea Parmesan Pasta

- grated parmesan cheese
- shrimp (optional)

1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. Prepare a bowl by placing baby spinach in the bottom.
3. Open a can of peas and rinse/strain. Put desired amount of peas in prepared bowl.
4. Rinse shrimp if using.
