Darn Yummy Pasta!
I don't know what this is called, I have no clue because I came up with it tonight and all I could think of while eating was "Darn this is yummy pasta".......AND............AND........the kids raved and raved ending in Jasmine actually requesting it for her birthday dinner next week. WOW!
Oh and they both had two servings, I would say this is a hit.
I don't have a recipe for it, so just bear/bare (uhhh, none of those look right to me at this moment LOL) with me. I'm writing all this down here so that I also remember what I used otherwise, forget it, it will completely get lost.
In a skillet with about a tablespoon of olive oil, fry up 2 diced shallots and 1 diced garlic clove
Add a little white wine, it was about 1/4 cup or so
Now go to the refrigerator and pull out one of those handy dandy little precooked chicken strips bags thingies....you know the ones.....
Now give it a rough chop, don't go all nuts on it though, you want to bite into pieces of chicken ok?
Now take that yummy chicken and add it to the wine yumminess (lots of yummy going on here) in the skillet
Cook it for a few minutes, like 2 or 3 that's all it needs.
In the meantime, you need to cook about 8 oz of pasta, I'm using bow tie but you can use any you have.
And because Blogger has decided to stop letting me upload pics, I had to use another online site, so you'll have to click on the little itty bitty thumbnail to see the actual size.
Drain the pasta and add it to a big bowl....
Add the chicken mixture to it
Now sprinkle on some parsley and basil....don't ask me how much, I just eyeball things LOL
Here's the secret ingredient, you ready for this........it's shocking.......a jar of store bought Alfredo Sauce. *GASP*
Stir well, then add 1/3 cup of milk....again I just came up with that and it worked so go with it
Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on, mix everything well, then pour into a baking dish
Cover with foil and bake at 350º for about 15 minutes, then uncover and sprinkle some more parmesan cheese on top and bake for another 10 minutes or until heated through.
VOILA.........Darn Yummy Pasta......I'm not kidding, go make it and then come and tell me if it wasn't good.
