This is a recent try from pinterest. I got the original recipe here
it! He went back for seconds so I know he wasn't just being nice.
In his words, "It's like a better Mac & Cheese."
So yummy, cheesy and easy!
What you'll need:
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 lb Kalbalsa Sausage
1 1/2 C Onion, diced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 C Chicken Broth
1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel, Mild
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
8 oz Penne Pasta
1/2 tspn Salt & Pepper, each
1 C Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1/3 cup Scallions, sliced
Start by heating your oil olive in your pan; I couldn't help but smile and wave for the camera in the refection he he.
Once your oil is smoking throw in your sausage...
...and your onions. Let them brown for about 4-5 minutes.
Toss in your garlic and let it meld with your onions and sausage for just a bit (recipe says 30 seconds).
Next add in the chicken broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt & pepper. Stir to mix together.
Bring you pan to a boil, the reduce your heat to low and cover. Let everything simmer for about 15 minutes or until your pasta is done.
While your pan is simmering you can chop your scallions...[below]
Once your pasta is done add half of your cheese and stir. The remaining cheese throw on top as well as your scallions.
Throw your pan in the oven [as long as it is oven safe] and broil until cheese is melted and browned. This will probably take about 3 minutes...
I am so in love
with this right now! I tried this Tomato Basil Chicken last night for the first time.
I got the original recipe here
good. I had it for left overs for lunch today. Just. as. good.
What you'll need:
2 Chicken breasts
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 C fresh tomatoes, chopped
*about 3 tomoatoes
2 tsp minced fresh garlic
4 Tbsp cold butter
1/2 C fresh basil, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
*I used Mostaccioli
Parmigiano reggiano cheese, for garnish (I didn't know where this was so I didn't use it; still good)
Start by defrosting your chicken and starting your water for your pasta.
While your chicken is defrosting you can also chop your tomatoes and basil.
You will also want to heat your oil, you need it hot! I put mine to medium heat.
The water for your noodles is hopefully boiling by this point. Go ahead and toss in your noodles to get them going.
Once you meat is thawed out beat it.
I did just say beat your meat. This is the time to let out some pent up frustration. Plus, its pretty fun, not going to lie.
I used a rolling pin because I'm not fancy enough to have a mallet.
You don't want them to break apart just get them thinner so they are easier to cook.
Add some salt and pepper on you chicken and then toss them in the the pan.
Watch out! You don't want to be splashed by hot oil.
I used tongs to avoid getting hit.
Let your chicken cook for about 4-5 minutes on the first side...
Cook the other side for about 4-5 minutes as well...
Next you will want to add your tomatoes, again be careful of flying oils!
Next add your fresh basil. It smells so good!
Add your garlic...
Then give your pan a good stir.
You want all your yummy ingredients to meld together.
Let your sauce heat through and simmer for a minute.
Your noodles should about ready; once the noodles are done to your liking drain them.
Serve your sauce over your noodles in individual bowls.
