I have several posts in mind, for the next few, but I'll start with something simple and yummy today!
I printed out a recipe from Tasty Kitchen a while back and just happened to have all the ingredients on hand this week!
So, I whipped it up for dinner and tweaked it a little, and I was pleasantly surprised at the result! And to add to MY own delight, my husband had a second helping! He really liked it. Gotta mark that one down and make it again; it was such a hit.
Here's all you need:
Jar of marinara ( any one you like)
Jar of alfredo sauce
box of mini or regular penne
package of Perdue short cuts (chicken)
Mix the jar of alfredo in a small pot with 1/2 the jar of marinara. (the recipe called for 1/2 of each) but I shy away from too much red sauce, as my esophagus is not a big fan)
Heat the chicken in a pan with a little olive oil or cooking spray.
Toss the cooked pasta with the sauce in a large bowl and when serving individual plates, top with the chicken.
This dish was so delicious!! Kind of reminded me of a light vodka sauce or a blush sauce. Do try it!
** I added a photo of the recipe I found on Tasty Kitchen ** I didn't want to steal the photo - but I forgot to take one and recipes are just not as enticing without a photo.
I didn't add the peas or the pepper garnish(?)
I even made some home made garlic bread - YUM!
