Whewwwwww the workday is ov-ah! 🙂
In the words of Lucy Dog…. “it was a ruffin’ good day!….
… but I’m dog-tired, so get me home lady!”
I think someone had a good day at Doggie Daycare 😉
Onto dinnah!! I knew I wanted to do something with an Italian twist tonight, and here’s what I gathered up
I decided to do a veggie pasta saute with some chicken — “use up whatcha got” pasta night! I think ya’ll know how fond I am of nights like this, sparks up my kitchen creativity and that is funnnnn 🙂
I sauteed 2 cloves chopped garlic in 1 tblsp EVOO for a minute (medium heat), then added the chopped onion for a few (salt & pepper too peeps!).
Next I added the chopped peppers and broccoli, cooking til soft and they start to caramelize 🙂
At this point it was time to add these guys
Has anyone tried these fire roasted tomatoes before? They are SO GOOD! Check out the charred goodness inside omggggg
Chocked full o’ flava and only 75 cals in the whole container – yes please 🙂
So I dumped these bad boys in plus some red wine (shhhhh 😉 ) & oregano
and let it simmer for a bit (15 minutes?)
I chopped up what was prob the equivalent of 2 chicken breasts (Tom Leonards breasts are outta control big?) and added that to the sauce, letting it cook in all the flavors. Turn the heat down to medium-low at this point til its done.
Then I boiled up some linguine – which was not whole wheat *gasp*! Listen folks, we so rarely eat pasta, and The Man really enjoys the old school noodles – so you know what? That’s what we had!!! Everything in moderation 🙂
Sprinkled with some grated Parm to serve
Can I get a heck yea?!?! 😛
I also made a salad to go alongside – romaine, tomato, cucumber, onion, oregano, black pepper, deli cheese
Oregano is the secret to salad friends, I am fo realz!
Dinner was legit. We rarely eat pasta bc I just really don’t crave it often (The Man is Italian, does that make me a bad girlfriend :/) but tonight hit the spot!
Oh and in other news, check out this slice of heaven I found in our local grocery ad
Yep, you saw that right! Ohhhhh I can’t wait for some more of these bad boys 🙂
Alright peeps, we’re almost there (as in end of the week!) – I hope you have wonderful nights and see you tomorrow!!
