Everyone needs a recipe of their own like this. Something that they can throw together in their sleep, but never get tired of, and is still tasty enough to serve to other people. Sam’s is Roasted Pork with roasted potatoes, spinach and a cream sauce. Mine is this pasta dish. I love it because the flavours taste so clean yet comforting.
Pasta with Chicken, Lemon and Bell Peppers
A dish we never tire of!
1/2 lb Farfalle pasta (bow ties)
Red bell pepper, diced
3 chicken breasts cut into strips
1/4 cup of heavy cream
clove of garlic
juice of 1 lemon
2-3 tablespoons of capers
salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan
I am a lemon using fiend. I go through so many a week. (I put slices in water to encourage me to drink more.)
Put your pasta on to cook. While your water is boiling start to cook your chicken in a skillet with a bit of garlic and olive oil. When the chicken is no longer pink add in your bell peppers and keep the dish on a low heat.
Sam doesn’t call them bell peppers. He just says, “peppers”.
When your pasta is almost ready, add the capers to the chicken (basically just to warm them.)
I also love capers. If you don’t you can easily not put them in and the dish will still be tasty.
Drain your pasta and toss it with the heavy cream first. Then with the lemon juice. Lastly mix in the chicken and veggies and parmesan. Salt and pepper to taste!
Simple, effective and delicious! What are your standard, “go-to” meals?
