Growing up my mom would always concoct things for dinner with what she had in the cupboards and freezer or fridge. I took a lesson from Mom and concocted some pretty good pasta for dinner last night.
Chicken breast, thawed
Pepper and some seasonings for the chicken
Pasta (I used penne)
1 1/2 sticks of butter
- Season the chicken and grill it
- Boil the pasta until al dente, drain
-Chop onion and saute in some olive oil in a skillet
- Add the cooked pasta
-Add the butter and stir until melted
-Drizzle lemon juice on top and stir
-Mix in some garlic
-Stir in diced tomatoes
-Let simmer for 5 minutes
-Cut chicken in to strips
-Dish the pasta and put chicken on top and top with shredded cheese.
It's pretty quick and easy but tasted like something you could get at Olive Garden or another tasty Italian restaurant.
