Dinner Tonight: Seasoned Chicken Breast w/ Whole Grain Rotini and Baked Mozzarella Bread
Much colder out this morning, about 28 degrees. And it didn't get a whole lot warmer today, about 37 with a wind chill around 20 at times. For Breakfast I had an Eggo (Nutrigrain), topped with a Egg Beter's Egg White Scramble, and 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Add my morning cup of Bigelow decaf Green Tea and I was set!
Felt like staying in for the day so I thought I would bake some Devil's Food Chocolate Cupcakes. I
To start I opened up a can of LaRosa's Sauce, which I've decided to use as my Pasta Sauce. Emptied the can into a small sauce pan ; covered it with the lid and let it it simmer on low heat.
For the Chicken part of the dish I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts (2 of them). I had
For the Pasta part of the dish I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest 100% Whole Grain Rotini. I love pasta,
In a medium size dinner bowl; I made a bed of the pasta, topped it with the LaRosa's Sauce, and then topped with the sliced Chicken Breast Tender. I really enjoyed this dinner! The Pasta came out perfect and the Chicken came out browned, juicy, and seasoned just right. Then to tie it all together was the LaRosa's Sauce. It's my favorite Sauce, so well seasoned and just brings fantastic flavor to any dish!
I also prepared 2 slices of Baked Mozzarella Bread.Took 2 slices of Aunt Millie's Light Whole Grain Bread and topped it with a bit of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I added Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese and topped it all with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Had the oven preheated on 400 degrees, Put the 2 slices on a small cookie sheet and baked them until the Bread was toasted and the Cheese melted. An easy prepared Cheese bread, goes great with Pasta Dishes. For dessert later a Devils Food Chocolate Frosted Cupcake.
