Macaroni Omelet
For those like me who aren’t big fans of “breakfast foods”, this quick meal could be make faster with macaroni noodles cooked the night before. Just add chopped broccoli (also cooked during dinner prep) and you have breakfast!

1 cup cooked broccoli, chopped ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Mix eggs with broccoli and macaroni. Scramble in non-stick skillet until fluffy. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
