Information about meal

This meal is an Italian pasta and chicken dish. This is traditionally a meal made during the spring and summer seasons.

Background and Information

The topic for this post is a simple and easy Italian dish that is good for summer or spring. This is a seasonal dish that can be made anytime as long as the ingredients are available. Luckily everything needed to make this dish tends to stay stocked in all grocery stores. A plus to this is that it only involves six ingredients to make this dish a success. Some of the best meals come with simple but tasty ingredients that come together in harmony. So to start by introducing this recipe I will give you a bit of a back story. I found this little gem when I was hunting for a light chicken dish with few things needed. But I have to tweak the recipe because I like more tomatoes than meat in my pasta. So this is the version I created but you can always tweak the recipe to your taste.


Now for the fun part plating the dish. You can either use a family plate or have everyone grab it from the main plate. Or make individual plates for everyone that is eating the meal. This recipe is set to feed 4 - 6 people depending on if seconds are needed. If you need more portions then you need to double the recipe to fit the need. Make sure you figure out the amount of food you need if you do not plan for leftovers. But this dish is a good freeze and save option or even sit in the fridge for 2 days to munch on. Never leave this dish to sit out of the cold or in the heat once the meal is finished.

Past experience

I have made this many times for my family in small and large quantities. This is a simple and fresh meal that highlights the tomato and chicken of the dish. The great thing about this is that could hand the recipe down to your kids, friends, or even neighbors. Be careful while making the dish to not smash, cut, or burn your fingers and hands. Always follow safety procedures to keep accidents down that way everyone stays safe. Make sure to keep the heat on simmer or you will have a burnt flavor in your meal. Nobody wants to eat burnt garlic in their pasta dish. Be sure to enjoy the meal and to thank whoever made the meal.
