Chicken, Spinach and Pasta Casserole

Friday, December 16, 2011

Okay this is going to be added to my staple dinner rotation. It is DELICIOUS, EASY and HEALTHY.
Here is what you will need...

1 lb. pasta (I used whole wheat shells)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs.), diced
1/4 cup olive oil
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
5 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup white wine
2 cups mozzarella cheese

First, make your pasta...

While your pasta is cooking... 
heat the olive oil in your skillet and add the chicken. Cook until golden brown (about 10 mins)

Add the garlic and simmer with the chicken, about 3 mins, or until fragrant. 

Add to the skillet, your spinach...

As well as your white wine and salt...

Combine the contents of the skillet with your pasta and put into a casserole dish...

Cover with cheese and bake for 25 mins at 350 degrees...

Eat and enjoy!

"Dove" Peanut Blossoms

Saturday, December 10, 2011

I have been baking up a storm this holiday season and this is a GRAEAT spin on traditional peanut blossoms... instead of using kisses, you replace them with Dove Promises! I prefer dove chocolate to Hershey's all day long!  I used both dark and milk chocolate but preferred the dark. I used this recipe but baked for 8 mins and then pressed the dove chocolate on and put them back in the oven for 1 minute. I made them in the evening and the chocolate was VERY soft until the next morning, when they cooled and set. Try these, you wont be disappointed :)

There is the cutest cupcake shop in Milford (suburb of Cincinnati) that has become a new favorite spot of mine and this sweet little girls'.  They serve new flavors all the time according to the season. They use organic ingredients and this is the perfect little spot for a girls date or to bring your man :)
