Change of plans for dinner last night! Jarrod decided he wanted to make us some dinner, and of course I was not opposed to such a wonderful idea 🙂
Jarrod and I LOVE pasta. Prior to my 2010 plan to healthify my life, I’d eat pasta 2-3 times each week. Nowadays, it’s more like 0-1 times per week. As evidenced by the pasta dinner we had on vacation (and again, and again, and again, and again), we just don’t really EVER get sick of a nice pasta dinner.
First, Jarrod sautéed some garlic, sliced onions, sliced white mushrooms, and the rest of the banana pepper I grew in my garden:
Once the veggies were nice and tender, he added them to a simmering pot of Classico Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic sauce. Meanwhile, he threw some chicken breasts on the george foreman grill. They were seasoned up with a little olive oil and A TON of cajun seasoning. And he also dropped some Dreamfields Penne Pasta.
Pasta dinner comes to fruition:
On the side, we had a delicious salad consisting of romaine lettuce, sliced red onions, roma tomatoes, green pepper and Ken’s Steakhouse Lite Balsamic Dressing:
LOVE me a good salad! I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: that Ken really knows a thing or two about salads!
This dinner rocked my socks 😀
Jarrod didn’t measure all of the ingredients out like I do, so calculating the stats was more of an art than a science this time.
Stats for 1 4 ounce boneless skinless chicken breast with 1 tsp olive oil, 1 serving Dreamfields Pasta, 1/2 cup Classico Fire roasted Tomato & Garlic sauce, 1/4 cup sliced white onion, 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms, 1/4 cup sliced banana pepper: 434 calories, 57g carbs, 8g fat, 31g protein, 9g fiber
