So after my big personal success last week, I was feeling confident about my ability to go with the flow in the kitchen. I was going out of town for the weekend, so before I left, I decided to use some of the ingredients I had sitting around the house. It was a gigantic, enormous success! If I do say so, I am very proud of myself! Not only was this dish amazing, but I made it up! You should definitely try it.
Pasta with lots of nummies
- 1 box of pasta, around 14 ounces
- 1 can of diced tomatoes, 14 ounces
- about 12 ounces of tomato sauce
- 1 box of frozen artichoke hearts
- 1/2 cup of white wine
- 15-20 kalamata olives, sliced in half
- 1/2-1 onion, chopped
- a few cloves of garlic, diced
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1.5-2 chicken breasts
I started by cooking the chopped chicken breast in olive oil until the pieces were browned and cooked through. I then removed the chicken to a plate and heated up the other tablespoon of olive oil in the pan.
I then added the onion and cooked for a minute or two before adding the artichoke hearts. I continued to cook the onion until it was just slightly browned. Oh, and about this time I started cooking the pasta.
I then added the garlic and cooked for about 30 seconds before adding the white wine. I then let the whole mix simmer for a few minutes in the wine.
I then added the tomatoes, sauce, olives, and chicken and let the whole thing simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
I then served the sauce over the pasta and boy was it delicious!!!
