Things in my head and now …. not

Chcken Pasta with Spinach Sauce

When it comes to meals, our family has had unusual schedules for so many years I dont even remember.  Ever since the kids were able tow rok and drive their schedules went crazy and Al’s hours are usually 5 am to anywhere between 6 pm and 10 pm.

Even now with Brad moved out and Justin busy with work, college, and friends… it is still hard to put a good meal on the table with Al still coming in at anytime – and with my schedule…. we do a lot of simple meals, fast and shelf life friendly.  This weekend for instance, we ordered pizza on Friday and went to Buffalo Wild Wings on Saturday.  Tonight – I wanted to do something healthy and delicious.  Here it is:

1 package of whole wheat pasta

2 to 3 pounds of chicken breast strips (non breaded)

fresh mushrooms

fresh spinach (large bunch)

2 garlic cloves

Olive Oil

Grill the chicken with the mushrooms in a pan on stove.  While grilling, cook the pasta in boiling water with plenty of salt in the water.

While everything is cooking – tear up spinach into little pieces, peel the garlic cloves and add both to a food processor with 4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper.  (I used my Magic Bullet) Puree all.

When pasta is done and rinsed, add to the chicken and mushrooms and then add the purees spinach sauce over the pasta combo and mix.  This is a delicious healthy recipe that we loved!

I served it with fresh steamed broccoli and a side dish of cottage cheese with pears.
