I am sorry I have been away… the world has been a little crazy lately. But, I think I am back at it now and I have a yummy recipe you are sure to love… Basil-Asparagus Penne.
I found the recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Meals in Minutes and tweaked it a bit to fit my family’s tastes
I also popped a box of Penne in the microwave and cooked it to al dente.
Meanwhile, I heated 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil and added 4 Cloves of Minced Garlic.
As you can see below, I got mine a little toasted too far… had my oil too hot
I then tossed in a pound of cubed chicken breasts to beef…er… chicken it up.
I cooked the chicken until the juices run clear…
I then added 32 oz of Canned Tomatoes with the juices and 1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
Meanwhile I steamed a pound of asparagus in the microwave and then added it to the pan.
And 1/3 Cup Chopped Basil
Now add in those grilled peppers after you peel them.
Now pour your cooked pasta into a 9 x 13 pan
And cover with the chicken mixture and mix.
And top with 2/3 Shredded Parmesan
Broil for 5 minutes until perfection.
