Din-Din

So I got a wild hair up my behind the other night!  I should have been doing homework or cleaning my house, but I wanted to do something nice for my husband.  It was a special day....we are halfway through our first year of marriage!!  Mr. K had to work all day and I got out of class fairly early.  I played on Pinterest for a while and found a recipe I felt I could master.  I used this recipe as a jump-off point, but I changed things a little bit.  I couldn't tell you how much I used of all the ingredients, but here's what I used:
  • Sauce
    • Diced onion
    • Diced sweet pepper
    • Minced garlic
    • Olive oil
    • Salsa verde
    • Diced tomatoes
    • Heavy whipping cream
  • Rotini Pasta
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Rub
    • Sea salt
    • Chili pepper
    • Black pepper
    • Paprika
    • Garlic
You'll see that the ingredients are basically the same.  I mixed the sauce in a skillet on the stove-top on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes.  The pasta was cooked according to the directions on the box and the chicken was pan rubbed on both sides, pan-seared, and finished in the oven on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

The meal turned out so nice and it was very special to share it with my husband.  I hope to continue making dinners, because I think that a family should always join together around the dinner table.  This Pinterest thing is kinda nice.  Very easy to find new recipes and great blogs for inspiration!! 





What are your favorite dinner recipes?  I would love some fast, quick ideas for dinner!! 

Until then...
