PASTA, PASTA, PASTA! I love pasta! If only I could escape to a vacation in Italy. The pasta...the wine...oh my! I would be like a kid in a candy store. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening anytime soon, so let's just bring Italy home to me.
I love this pasta dish because it includes fresh ingredients and takes little time to prepare. Let's face it, it's a bit challenging to cook up labor-intensive, gourmet dinner when there is a 2-year-old attached to your leg. The less time spent cookin', the more time I can spend playing with the little one. Instead of surrendering to the "just order in" voices in your head, check out this option.
This recipe comes from the "Stove-Top Success" section in Paula Deen's March/April 2010 issue of Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine (page 37). It is simple, fresh and delicious. In less than 30 minutes, you can have a healthy, well-balanced dinner the whole family will enjoy. Here's all it takes...
GARLIC CHICKEN WITH CREAMY TOMATO PASTA
FAT FREE Olive Oil spray
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts; cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 cups packed fresh baby spinach
I hope you decide to give this recipe a try. If you are a busy person, this is definitely a recipe to bookmark.
