I don’t know about you, but I’m always wishing for more hours in the day. You get up, go to work, spend far too much time on a commute, get home, attempt to unwind, walk the dogs, cook dinner, goof around on the computer, go to bed.
Either I’ve got too much on my plate or I’m completely inept at time management. So most nights all I want to do is snap my fingers and have dinner magically appear on the table. Unfortunately, I’ve yet to conjure up that fairy. So I make my fallback dish.
In some form or another, we eat a lot of pasta in my house. It’s cheap. It’s easy. And it’s incredibly hard to screw up.
This may also be the reason why I gain weight. Ah, at least I’m happy.
So for this one, you need 5 ingredients:
farfalle (bow tie) pasta
(salt and pepper)
heat oil over medium heat.
dice chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook in oil until browned.
meanwhile, boil pasta until al dente. drain.
once chicken is cooked through, add pasta, sundried tomatoes, and pesto.
toss together to coat well.
crushed red pepper
And now you can go have that glass of wine you want while you unwind instead of wasting anymore time slaving over a hot stove.
