I only had a little time to rest today before cooking for dinner, I took my girls to the pool and came back at almost 3 o’clock. Took a shower, laid down a little bit and did my mommy duty in the kitchen.

Anwyay, I planned of making my family some angel hair pasta tonight, so even if I was a bit tired, I had to make it. I did not follow any recipe. I just made up my own, bought a jar of Ragu Cheese Creations Classic Sauce and that’s it! It is tasty and sure is filling in my stomach. Now that the new Italian study says eating pasta does not contribute to BMI, might as well, cook pasta a lot and serve to the family.

With my pasta, I used the following;

Half a box of store brand pasta
two regular size roma tomatoes
a jar of Ragu sauce
sliced mushrooms
a whole flower of broccoli (cut up)
minced garlic
4 tsp. avocado oil (you can use any oil of your choice)
5 cloves minced parsley for garnishing
a tbsp of sea salt
half a teaspoon black ground pepper
cut up chicken meat ( guessing the amount of chicken, no exact measurement or weight how much I used)

Here’s how:
Boil 5 cups of water to cook the pasta. In another pot, boil 3 cups of water to blanch the broccoli. Brown chicken on a hot oil, stir occasionally. Brown the garlic when chicken’s tender, sautee that mushrooms, tomatoes and add the sauce, cover until mushrooms are tender.

Add the pasta and broccoli, sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste. Mix evenly. Garnish with parsley. Serve hot!

A healthful dinner that does not need rocket Science to make. You can make your own pasta recipe, anyway you want it, it is possible!
