Easy Pasta Salad and Easy Herb Chicken and Vegetables
Dinner last night was prepared in 5 minutes. I mixed 1/3 cup of water with a packet of Grill Mates Zesty Herb seasonings (you could use italian seasonings) with 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar. I place chicken breasts in a pan and snuggled some asparagus and carrots around the edges. I then drizzled the herb mixture on top of the whole dish. Ready to go into a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Quick and healthy 🙂
This pasta salad has to be one of the best tasting salads I have ever had. The best part, it is simple. These are the ingredients I used.
Of course boil your pasta. I was looking to find brown rice penne but the store I went to does not have it, so I used whole wheat penne. Place arugula, chopped onion, feta, a jar of marinated artichokes drained, and a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil drained in a large bowl. I did not measure ingredients I just eyeballed how much I wanted. I made a large bowl of salad because I want leftovers. It is best when all the ingredients marry each other if you know what I mean 🙂 Add cooked pasta and drizzle with a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste and it is done. So flavorful!!!
What is on your plate today?
