Food and Family/Pasta and Kids


My daughters were in a wedding recently, so we just couldn’t resist a photo-op.

One of their high school buddies got married.

Anytime all of my children are going to be home at the same time Mom and I have a dinner.

This time we had pasta.

Mom made her famous lasagna.

Recipe to come as soon as possible.

I made this Chicken Pasta Primavera.

It was very good.

Here is the recipe:

 

4 cloves chopped garlic

1 C cut up broccoli

1/2 C diced onion

1 C  bite sized carrots

1 C sliced zucchini

1 C sliced yellow squash

2 C  sliced white button mushrooms

1 chopped bell pepper

5 T  butter

2 T olive oil

1 1/2 lbs cooked whole wheat penne pasta

4 cooked and cut up, large chicken breasts

 

Sauce:

1 1/2 C  chicken broth

1 C  heavy whipping cream

1 C half-and-half

1 C grated parmesan cheese

basil leaves to taste

salt and pepper to taste

 

Cook all vegetables, a few at a time, until al dente in 4T of butter and the olive oil in your skillet on the stove top.

Then remove all the vegetables and make your sauce.

Pour your chicken broth in skillet, along with your remaining 1 T of butter for about 1 min.

Add whipping cream, half-and-half, grated parmesan cheese.

 Tear in your basil leaves.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Stir everything together at this point.

YUM

 

But the favorite dish that was made was a Oreo pudding dessert.

That recipe is coming up next.
