Easy Meat Marinara over Crispy Potatoes

Easy Meat Marinara over Crispy Potatoes

I hope you all are loving my Whole 30 journey on my instagram beacuse we still have 27 days to go together :) I started whole 30 for a reset, but also for some recipe inspiration. I wanted to push myself to think outside of the box and be a little more creative in the kitchen.

For me, quick dinners are always going to be my go to. That is why it is so important to find healthy dinners that are minimal ingredients and easy to put together, because who wants to spend hours cooking after a long day of work? This meat sauce + crispy potatoes is such an easy dinner and both components can be used many ways! I would love this sauce over brown rice pasta, steamed spinach or even on its on with a fried egg on top. The crispy potatoes can be a side dish to wow your family and friends! Serve with a fancy aioli and you'll have some crazy delish patatas bravas :)
