Tonight’s dinner is a creamy chicken and pasta dish!

 

Here are the ingredients!

  • 1 tablespoon of Cantanzaro Herbs- Salt Free- from Savory Spice
  • 3 tablespoons of Original Nut Pod Creamer
  • 5 boneless chicken breasts- cut into thin slices- from Harris Teeter
  • 2 heads of garlic- chopped finely in a food processor- from Harris Teeter
  • 2 bags of Bird’s Eye frozen peppers- from Harris Teeter
  • 1 package of Barilla Angel Hair- from Target
  • 1 stick of butter- from Target
  • 1 package of frozen spinach- from Target
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic salt- from Target
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning- from Target
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano leaves- from Target
  • 1 cup of California Roots Chardonnay- from Target

 

To start with,  I heated up a large skillet on medium heat and added in the butter, the Cantanzaro Herbs, the Italian seasoning, the oregano, and the chopped garlic. I cooked it for about 10 minutes until the garlic started to smell yummy. I added in the chicken, spinach, peppers, wine, and creamer, covered it, and let it simmer on low for about 45 minutes.

 

When there was about 15 minutes left on the chicken, I boiled a whole box of Angel Hair in salted water that also contained a tablespoon of olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking.

 

When the pasta was done, I drained it and added it in with the chicken and let it simmer with the sauce for about 5 minutes to absorb all the flavors and then served.

It was so yummy! Enjoy!

Tonight's dinner is fettuccine alfredo! I love this dish because it's delicious and rich, but also so easy to make!

To start with, I boiled a large pot of water that also contained 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of salt. When the water reached a roaring boil, I added in the whole box of pasta, gave it a stir, and let it cook for about 12 minutes.

When it was done, I drained it into a large colander, and then put the pasta into a large bowl. I added in a whole jar of the Ragu classic alfredo sauce, gave it a stir and served.

I paired this with some Naked Grape Pinot Grigio. 

It was so yummy! Enjoy!

For a quick and easy vegetarian lunch today, I am making Greek seasoned four cheese tortellini!

 

Here are the ingredients!

  • 1 package of Archer Farms cheese tortellini- from Target
  • 1 tablespoon of salt- for the pasta water
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil- for the pasta water
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of California Roots Chardonnay- from Target 

 

To start with, boil a large pot of water, adding in the salt and olive oil.  Add in the tortellini and cook for about 15 minutes.

In a large saucepan, have the heat on low and add in the butter. Melt the butter thoroughly, and then add in the Mt. Olympus Greek seasoning, the garlic powder, the garlic salt, and wine.  Whisk to combine.

When the pasta is done, either drain it in large calendar, or just scoop the pasta out with a big slotted spoon, which is my preferred method.

Add in the pasta to the butter sauce and stir to combine.

It was so yummy! Enjoy!
