Caprese Cold Noodle Meal Prep is here for a fresh, no microwave meal prep to get your noodle twirling, cheese loving, hands all over!
Servings 4 lunches
- 8 oz dry whole wheat spaghetti
- 200g container mini bocconcini soft cheese balls approx 1 cup
- 2 cups cherry tomatos
- ¼ cup diced purple onion
- ½ cup fresh basil, fresh
- 4 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
- 4 tablespoons balsamic reduction
- to taste salt and pepper
Cook the spaghetti noodles according to the package. Drain and rise with cold water.
Divide the noodles into 4 meal prep containers.
Add ½ cup of tomatoes to each container.
Divide the package of bocconcini evenly between the containers.
Divide the diced onion evenly between the containers.
Add the basil. Note: it will discolor after being cut. The color changes, but the flavor is just fine.
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste on top.
Keep your dressing separate, and add at time of eating. My dressing for each container is one tablespoon of oil and one tablespoon of balsamic reduction. Feel free to use a balsamic dressing of choice.
When it is time to eat, pour the dressing over the noodles, put the lid on your container and shake (gently).
Caprese Cold Noodle Meal Prep can stay prepped in the fridge for 4 days.
