March is an exciting time of the year! From spring cleaning to spring break, it marks a period of rejuvenation that sparks joy in many. For Working Solutions, it signals the launch of our brand-new agent newsletter! This newsletter, called the Work-at-Home Gig Insider, features articles and information relevant to succeeding as a work-from-home, independent contractor.
Work-at-home Wellness, called WAH Wellness, will be a staple feature that will deliver tips, tricks and strategies covering topics such as fitness, mindset, and quick, easy recipes to empower agents to achieve work-life balance.
For our first WAH Wellness, we’re showing you how to transform your typical Taco Tuesday into a delicious, one-skillet meal! This Tasty Taco Mac One Pot Pasta featured by goodcook® takes just 5 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook, making it the perfect busy weeknight dinner.
This dish is sure to be a hit because kids and adults can recognize its familiar flavors. This means that you don’t have to worry about wasting time on a new dish, only to be nervous about whether or not your significant other will like it and frustrated when your kids refuse to eat it.
Do you or does someone in your family have dietary restrictions? Not a problem!
For vegetarians, this recipe can be made meat-free by simply eliminating the sausage crumbles. If following a vegan diet, leave out the cheese and meat or replace with vegan cheese and protein substitutes.
Gluten-free? Simply prep with gluten-free pasta. Speaking of pasta, this tasty, one-skillet meal does not require pasta. If you are following paleo, medium-chop a head of cauliflower and use it in place of the pasta. The cook time for the cauliflower florets will remain the same as the pasta.
