As promised, here is the recipe for One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken. Please make ASAP. You won’t be disappointed! And you can’t tell me that the recipe was hard to make….you just dump everything into the same pot!
One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken (Serves 6)
Recipe from The Slow Roasted Italian
8 ounces baby spinach leaves, divided
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and Italian herbs, drained (about 7 ounces)
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1/2” bite size pieces)
6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 pound dry linguine
2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup Chardonnay wine
4 ounces fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded
1. Combine 1/2 of the spinach with the tomatoes, onion, chicken, garlic, linguine, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper in a 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Pour chicken stock and wine over top. Cover and bring to a boil.
2. Cook 7-9 minutes until pasta is al dente (with a bite to it). Toss pasta with tongs occasionally to keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot. You will still have some liquid in the pan when the pasta is done cooking. This is going to make the base for our delicious cheese sauce.
3. Turn off the heat and add the cheese to the pasta. Toss pasta with tongs until the cheese melts into the pasta. Toss in remaining spinach. Serve and enjoy!
Friday night we took the kids to Pizza Rev for dinner.
This pizza is only 500 calories and makes me beyond happy. After dinner, we went to Valley View to see the Harlem Globetrotters. The show was seriously fabulous. Even my sports-hating daughter enjoyed it. If you ever get the chance to see them, do so!!
Saturday’s breakfast was scrambled eggs instead of a poached egg:
I went to the gym and did laundry. Lunch was the rest of the Quinoa Greek Salad, veggies, hummus and Trader Joe’s Spinach and Kale Dip.
Last night we went out to celebrate Cathi’s birthday. We saw the movie “50 Shades Darker” and we all wore gray. We went to dinner at Davanti. Lisa decorated the table with themed cookies!
Everyone shared a few different pizzas.
We also shared my favorite: Focaccia di Recco (Ligurian flatbread, soft cow’s cheese, honeycomb):
After dinner we saw the movie. I liked it better than the first one but the book is definitely better!
Today’s breakfast was a repeat of yesterday’s:
Today has been pretty chill. Just getting stuff done around the house. Lunch was tuna salad, hummus, kale dip and veggies:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend?
Have you seen either of the 50 Shades movies?
