Chicken pasta primavera (a basic recipe)

Over the weekend I was experimenting with different recipes. Now, different people like different types of seasoning for the pasta. I’d imagine folks can use anything from full on Alfredo sauce to Ranch, Italian, or perhaps a balsamic dressing. It’s entirely up to your tastes.

Ingredients:

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut up into small pieces
  • olive or canola oil
  • some sort of pasta (your choice) – I used penne (about 2 cups)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut up into thin slices
  • 1 zucchini , cut up into thin slices
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • Seasoning/dressing

Directions:

  1. Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan. Throw in chicken and and cook until the juices are no longer pink. Toss in vegetables and cook for another four minutes or so until the spinach wilts and the other veggies are tender.
  2. As the chicken is cooking, boil up the pasta according to package directions.
  3. Once both parties are done, toss together in a big bowl and add your seasoning/dressing.

 

Voilá! A fast, easy, tasty meal with good vegetables and protein 🙂
