I will be the first to admit that side dishes are not my strong point. I have grand intentions of beautiful salads, fresh fruit in a beautiful display, even just steamed veggies. Some days we get there others are pretty poor.
So I'm excited to tell you about this yummy noodle dish we made today. The entire dinner took only 30 minutes. First we cooked frozen Costco Chicken tenders sprinkled with Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning, this took about 15 minutes. The spinach steamed in a micro cooker for 2 minutes. The noodles were quick and perfect.
We will make this again often--maybe tomorrow, it was that good. We may add roasted summer squash, mushrooms, onion, pepper etc, add diced meat and it turns into a meal. Oh we do have plans for this dish.
This recipe came from the Cheese Pusher, we made it as written today but we do have plans!
Creamy Garlic Pasta

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
Heat olive oil and add garlic. Stir about a minute until fragrant. Add the butter, salt, pepper and chicken broth. Bring to boil and add spaghetti. Cook amount of time stated on package, ours cooked in about 5 minutes, stir often so it doesn't stick. Add Parmesan cheese and stir till all melted. Remove from heat and add cream, stir. Add parsley, stir and serve immediately. Enjoy! This is one yummy quick dish--trust me on this one.Even the baby loved it.
