If you missed last week's link up, no worries. Join now! It isn't that hard. Just type a recipe that either is a family recipe, a favorite recipe of yours or one you are wanting to cook for your family (or yourself) and put it in your blog. Then link back to me at the bottom so we can all follow your recipe and maybe add it to our personal cook book! Bring some friends!
I stole this recipe from another blogger Faith, Trust & a Little Pixie Dust back in October of 2010. Having a love for Italian food, I HAD to try it. I also ask you to try this recipe as you will want to make it ALL THE TIME!!!
Penne Rosa1 precooked roasted chicken
1 tsp. Montreal Steak Seasoning
1/2 lb. penne pasta
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 - 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 cup heavy cream
salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley - cut up
6-8 basil leaves - cut up
Parmesan cheese for garnishment
Boil water for pasta & put pasta on to cook. Cut chicken breast meat off chicken. (I leave it in pretty good-sized chunks). Melt butter in a large skillet. Add olive oil & garlic. Cook for just a few seconds. Add chicken breast chunks and Montreal Steak Seasoning. Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, cream, salt & pepper. When pasta is cooked (not too soggy!), drain & add. Add basil & parsley. Serve warm & garnish with fresh Parmesan cheese.
