I haven't cooked. I haven't cleaned. I have generally lost interest in all things related to food in general.
Tonight, however, after a productive afternoon of laundry, I decided to treat myself to some comfort food, sans husband (he's working tonight)
So, I whipped up a quick, easy pasta dish that is full of delicious veggies - the perfect end to a busy day!
Balsamic Chicken Alfredo with Mediterranean Vegetables
Boil up some pasta - I like to use whole wheat penne or fusilli. Cook according to package directions, drain.
Grill or pan sear a chicken breast (or two, if you want to share with someone else!)
Chop up and stir fry:
1 red onion
1 small zucchini
1 small eggplant
1/2 a red bell pepper OR 2 large roasted red peppers (from a jar)
To the stir fried veggies, add 1 jar of alfredo sauce - I like to use Classico mushroom alfredo sauce.
Then add 1/2 cup of Balsamic salad dressing. Bring to a simmer. Add pasta. Plate and add a chicken breast. I like to serve mine with freshly grated asiago cheese. Voila! Enjoy!
