Tonight was going to be salads with grilled chicken. Slushy snow is falling from the sky. We had pasta, instead.
It’s been raining all day, we’re under a flood watch, it’s cold, windy, and the aforementioned slush just made my day. A lovely salad just wasn’t going to work.
I took the chicken breasts I was going to grill and cut them up and sauteed them in a braising pan. I added some chopped broccoli, orange cauliflower, zucchini, and garlic. And salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
Next was about 2 cups of chicken broth, then a cup of shredded Italian cheeses.
I then added about 6 ounces of cooked tri-color rotini pasta, some chopped parsley, and about 6 ounces of small fresh mozzarella balls. I mixed it all up, thickened it with a bit of cornstarch, and popped it into the oven for 30 minutes.
And while it was baking, I made some cheesy garlic bread.
It’s supposed to be in the mid-80s Friday and Saturday.
