So last night was another scrumptious dinner. I had forgotten how creative I get in the kitchen! We had pan seared chicken with 5 cheese tortellini. Yumm-o! This is a great recipe (that I made up in my head) and I just had to share. Sorry there are not any pictures of it.
Cut into bite size pieces and mix with brown mustard (just enough to lightly coat the chicken). For the seasoning I crushed about a cup of croutons, pressed 2 cloves of garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, a dash of oregano and a little bit of parmesan cheese. I mixed it all together and then cooked the chicken in a pan sprayed with Olive Oil spray and cooked until done.
Follow directions on pack. I got the tri-colored. It was just prettier.
I heated up a little Prego spaghetti sauce and made some home made Alfredo sauce, then mixed them together. Scrumptious I say!
¼ cup of butter (I used low fat)
1 cup of cream (I used reduced fat milk)
¼ cup fresh parsley
1 pressed garlic clove
1 ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
Melt butter in saucepan. Then stir in milk and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cheese and whisk together until everything is melted and heated thru. Stir in parsley last. I mix it with the red sauce to add a little oomph!
Now for dessert: I took Cool Whip Free and mixed a little in with 2 of the 60 calorie, sugar free chocolate pudding cups. It made a nice mousse. And it was quite tasty too! How easy!
You should try. This could be Chris’s favorite meal invention of mine! I can’t wait to have the left-overs for lunch!
