Not sure what to cook for dinner tonight? We tried this recipe out last night and it was so simple to make, plus my family all enjoyed it. (I have a crew of little pasta lovers!) My friend Nikki sent it over with a few other recipes that I can't wait to try, and I loved that it was so simple to do the “cooking” early, and then pop it in the oven for dinnertime.
And, since my freezer is bursting with cheap chicken (thanks to recent deals at Earthfare & Kroger!), I was glad to use up a little food in our freezer! Let me know what you think if you try this one out for dinner at your house too.
