When I hit the grocery store, I have a few key ideas in mind for feeding my family. I look for whole, fresh, and natural ingredients whenever I can but I also have to feed several hungry people on a limited budget. My solution to healthy eating on a dime is the addition of pasta, rice, or potatoes to just about every dinner I serve. When you are trying to feed hungry, athletic teenagers with an insanely high metabolism, you need plenty of carbs! This pasta recipe will go a long way towards feeding a hungry family but won’t cost you a fortune to make.
I chose to use organic chicken breasts for this pasta recipe, along with a large jar of roasted red peppers from Botticelli. I love the flavor of fire roasted red peppers but I am lazy and making them myself seems like way too much work! From start to finish, this pasta recipe took less than 30 minutes to make so you can even prepare it on a busy weeknight and maybe have a few leftovers for the next day’s office lunch (if you love a good pasta recipe, check out my recipe for spaghetti pizza).
Botticelli Foods offers a wide variety of olive oils, pastas, vinegars and fire roasted sweet red peppers. They even offer an Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for those of you who prefer organic foods. They have been providing high quality olive oils for over 5 generations and take pride in the quality of the foods they offer. I was certainly impressed with the items I was sent to help create this recipe!
Let me know what you think of this pasta recipe if you decide to give it a try in your own kitchen!
