Monday's "Hearty" Pasta
This evening I put together a quick, beautiful and tasty pasta dinner in under 30 minutes. A couple of months ago I picked up a bag of gourmet multi-colored heart shaped imported Italian pasta at Fresh Market in Atlanta. I've been wanting to try it, but didn't want to make a sauce that the little hearts would get lost in. So...I diced a boneless Perdue chicken breast and sauteed it in a little olive oil, then poured about 1/2 of a jar of DelGrosso Vodka sauce over the chicken and let it simmer about 20 minutes while the pasta cooked and I made a salad. I made a chopped side salad and heated up some leftover Easy Cheesy Bread from Saturday night's dinner. I was careful not to overcook the pasta so the cute little hearts wouldn't break. I mean seriously...nobody wants to HAVE a broken heart, much less eat one! ;-) I served the meal on rectangular plates that really accentuated the different shapes and colors...it was a simple and delicious meal.
