A Simple Supper and the home of the week

This is one of the fastest easiest meals to make.  

Chicken with Pasta and Veggies.


1 chicken breast per two or three people, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic or too taste
Salt and Pepper
Pasta Sauce, whatever your favourite is
Veggies (see below)

In a saucepan with a little oil, brown the chicken breast.  Remove the chicken from the pan and add onion and garlic, and soften.  

Add the chicken back to pan along with the veggies that you are using.  In my case I had mushrooms and broccoli.  The more veggies you use the more this meal will stretch.

I had a jar of Alfredo Sauce, so I added that to the pan and let it simmer. 
 Meanwhile, in another pan I cooked the pasta.  In this case it was a Tricolour Rotini.  Again use what you normally would when you are making yourself or your family a meal.
With prep time, this meal could be on the table in 20 minutes or so.  It is so adaptable with using as much or as little meat as you want.  Adding more veggies and you can switch it up by using rice, noodles or even mashed potatoes.   A side of salad and some garlic bread would make this a simple fast meal for a weekday.

This week's "Home of the Week,"is a $1.6 million beauty.  The inside is gorgeous, but the outside area looks a little iffy???  Gorgeous floors, and very tastefully renovated.  I would take the house, but would have to move it to a different area.

This weeks, "Condo of the Week," is not bad from the inside, but it's a sketchy area where it's located.  At $850,000 it's not cheap either.  You are right downtown so it's all about location.  There is a lot of light coming inside of the home, but that could be just how the photographs were taken?, b

The "Cottage of the Week," is GORGEOUS, but at $2.4 million is it a cottage?  I don't think so, but it is perfect, I could just move in there and not change a thing.  Hopefully they would sell all the furniture with the place as well, as that is also perfect.  Now just to win the lottery!!!

Helped out Angie at The Knitting Basket yesterday with the blog and got another blog post out and sorted some more things out from a marketing point of view.  Enjoying doing it and looking forward to the sock knitting class in the Fall now!!

It always astounds me what is called a cottage. Growing up we vacationed in a two bedroom, one bathroom cottage for the five(sometimes six) of us. Things change I guess!

Supper is looking good :o)

Love the recipe. I'm always looking for something quick and easy to make when life gets busy. Don't care for either of the homes but do like the cottage although it's a "bit" outside of our budget!

I've had pasta dishes very much like this. Delicious!

After reading your post for a while and seeing the cottages of the week, I have decided the word cottage means something entirely different in Canada than it does in Alabama.

A timely recipe as pasta and veggies are on our dinner menu tonight as well...spinach, zucchini, tomatoes and some leftover rotissiere chicken added in, but alas no garlic bread��

Looks yummy! I could eat pasta with alfredo sauce every day. I often make this with shrimp instead of chicken.

Rose said...

The recipe sounds good. It would be good with a salad.

I loved the looks of the cottage of the week from the outside and loved its setting, but had real mixed feelings about the inside. Too much wood I think. I did not care for the condo at all...I did like the home of the week...

Thank you for the delicious recipe Gill and also for the links. I will go look at them now.

The chicken with pasta looks and sounds lovely. I like the home of the week but it deserves to be in a rural area where the next house isn't so close to it! Let in breath a bit!
