This quick and easy 21 Day Fix Pasta with Sherry-Mushroom Meat Sauce really brings the flavor with shallots, fresh thyme and a splash of sherry. A perfect weeknight meal!
Hey guys! How are you?! I’m pretty good aside from coming down with a ridiculously rotten cold. You know the one. The kind where your whole body aches and you get winded just walking to the bathroom. It’s the WORST.
On the bright side, I have a crap ton (that’s metric) of Instant Pot* Lemon Chicken Noodle in the fridge that I tested the other day and it’s basically saving my life. It’s really delicious and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! It’s also my very first Instant Pot recipe on the blog and I’m pretty pumped about that. We’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship, my Instant Pot and me, but I’ll tell you all about that in my next post.
Back to the task at hand! So ya know what I love about pasta? It’s almost hard to make a pasta dish that takes longer than a half an hour or so. I can’t tell you how many times it’s kept us from picking up a pizza on a busy weeknight.
I don’t know about you, but most of the time that we need ground meat for something, like meatloaf, meatballs or lasagna rolls, we almost always use lean and mean ground turkey, but it’s really nice to switch it up sometimes for lean ground beef instead. Also, there’s something about the flavor of ground beef that just goes so well with sherry. It really is the sherry that makes this simple recipe shine, so I hope you don’t skip it! Worried about about the wine with the kiddos? Most of the sherry gets stirred in at the very end, s0 you can always dish their portions out before adding it 🙂
Hope you guys love this easy weeknight meal as much as my family does!
*An Instant Pot is basically an electric pressure cooker, that has some other awesome functions like rice-cooker and yogurt-maker, etc.. It’s another great way to keep from picking up a pizza on a weeknight because it cooks things so much faster than they would take in the oven.
