Menu Plan Monday
Trying a new recipe this week, hopefully it'll turn out well.
Monday: Broccoli Pasta Toss - a favorite of mine, using frozen broccoli so it doesn't have a taste but we still get our veggies. the recipe calls for chicken, but i leave it out and neither of us seem to notice
Broccoli and Chicken Pasta Toss
2-1/2 cups penne pasta, uncooked
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/4 cup Italian Dressing
1/2 lb. Chicken breasts
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups tomato-basil spaghetti sauce
1 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese
COOK pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 min. MEANWHILE, heat dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and garlic; cook 5 min. or until chicken is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Stir in spaghetti sauce; cook 5 min. or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. DRAIN pasta mixture; return to pan. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Serve topped with the cheese.
Tuesday: Veggisaurus Chili Mac new recipe
Wednesday: fast food - basketball with the guys, so i won't be going back to his place to cook.
Thursday: Spaghetti and french bread, the girls are coming over to help with wedding flowers, so it'll be a double batch.
Friday: Fish sticks and fries, my usual standby Friday dinner. Eventually they'll get eaten and be out of my freezer forever! in the mean time, i'm just trying to eat a few at a time to make room for something else.
