Painless Pasta

July 13, 2008

I love to cook.   Okay, well-I love to eat.  At any rate, I really like to find recipes that are super quick and super easy.  I thought I would share one with you as I know that most women feel the same as I do, only more so because the have children.  It is also a great dish to take to events because of the fact that it is quick & easy-it also goes over really well.  Then everyone thinks you are Martha Jr-minus the entitled attitude.  Another fab fact, your husband can grill the chicken.  See where I am going with this…..

Painless Pasta

1-12oz. box Tri-Colored Rotini, 2-4oz. feta cheese (I am a feta FREAK), 1 pkg. cherry tomatoes, 1-12oz. bottle Girard’s Old Venice Italian dressing, 3-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts.

Directions:  Ladies slice cherry tomatoes in halves then bring your water to a rapid boil, add pasta then go back to watching TV.  Have your husband grill the chicken, stirring the pasta while walking by the oven to go check on the chicken.  He can also periodically taste the pasta to ensure it is not overcooked.  Then when he brings in the chicken, he can drain the pasta.  Then he can cut the chicken into chunks.  Meanwhile you hop up, dump the 2 containers of feta in with the tomatoes, pour 3/4 the dressing over the ingredients-and poof, you have lunch!

See, I told you it was easy….

    WOW. I love Feta too, but two WHOLE containers? Talk about a Feta love! My sister can tell you, I’m like the pickiest eater in the world, tomatoes being the all time top offender. So for me, well, if I switched the pasta for the non-tri color (green, eww), left out the tomatoes, the dressing….then I’d have very, very cheesy chicken.

    BUT I can think of lots of people who would love this! Keep it coming with the recipes. I’m always looking for something to break me out of the 2 year old eater diet!
