Week One of my 10 New Meals project is underway. I have one dish and two desserts (which we will talk about next week) under my belt. Maybe you saw what I was making over on Snapchat. So far, It’s been successful. Nothing more satisfying that creating something – including food! 🙂
I’m a huge pasta fan. It’s my version of comfort food. Whenever I go to Noodles & Company, I choose the Penne Rosa, with Parmesan Crusted Chicken. Gahh – so good! It’s a spicy, creamy dish that is very tasty and filling.
I’ve been wanting to make it at home. When I thought of the dishes I wanted to make, penne rosa was at the top of my list. Over the weekend, I bought the ingredients and finally had time to make it happen yesterday. I wanted to keep it simple, so I did not include meat or feta cheese (which is sooo good).
The recipe and photos are under the cut. It took about 30 min (Prep, cooking time, etc.) to make. (But I was taking pictures so that added time.) This dish should serve about 4, but I did not use the 1/2 lb of pasta.
