I absolutely love a good skillet meal on a busy weeknight. Being able to throw a bunch of ingredients in a skillet makes for a quick meal AND quick clean up. That’s a winning combination in my book!

Plus, I have a few tricks to making the meal even easier. A package of Knorr Sides helps me skip the need to gather a bunch of spices and seasonings. The ultimate meal starter, each package is packed with amazing flavor so that I only need to add a few things and I can whip up a tasty meal in a flash.

A family favorite is my Cajun Red Beans & Rice. Super flavorful, this dish is bursting with the hearty goodness of smoked sausage, a rich and flavorful rice plus a kick of Cajun seasoning. And the best part? It’s all made in one skillet with just a few ingredients. Right now you can get the ingredients you need PLUS big savings when you shop at Publix.
