As promised, here is the recipe for the Chicken Mozzarella pasta dish below. It's a definite keeper and will be making the meal rotation list.
Chicken Mozzarella Pasta recipe.
Chop chicken breast up in small pieces and brown in skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove chicken and toss in chopped onions and garlic. Next time I will add mushroom.
Add jarred pasta sauce and some herbs, then toss in chicken. The recipe in the cookbook Dinnertime neglects to tell you to toss the chicken at this point but the PW website does state to place it in the sauce now.
After a few minutes, stirring as the sauce heats, you will add 8 ounces of cubed mozzarella. It has to be a block of mozzarella and cubed pieces. If you use shredded it won't turn out the same. I imagine it will be good but this way you get the ooey bits of melting mozzarella chunks in the sauce.
While that was going on you can cook your pasta and plate it. Use Parmesan cheese liberally.
So far I have managed this list for 4 weeks. Let's see if I can keep going!! What has been on your meal plan for the week?
I had my tea brack post scheduled for yesterday to participate in Beth Fish Reads Weekend Cooking event. We went camping earlier in the week...
