Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Tomato & Chicken Penne

With permission from Gooseberry Patch I’m bringing you another recipe from their brand new book
Rush Hour Recipes
The review of the book is on my main blog.

16 oz. package of Penne Pasta, uncooked
1/4 c. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic, chopped
28 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained ( I used the ones with the jalapeño's in it!)
1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped or 1 tsp. dried basil
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
8 oz package shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; sauté for one minute. Stir in tomatoes and basil; continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add chicken to skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until heated through. Transfer mixture in skillet to a large serving bowl; toss with pasta and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
This was a hit with my family. EVERYONE loved it!

Incredible Dish! I often get home from work before my wife and try to get dinner done before she gets home so she can relax. Fantastic Recipe
