Chicken & Artichoke Pasta: Recipe #2 from Ready, Set, Eat!
I knew the moment I came across this recipe in my Ready, Set, Eat! cookbook from Gooseberry Patch that I was going to cook it as part of the "In the Kitchen" series with the Real Farmwives of America. I mean everything about it sounded yummy and delicious (and did I mention super fast and HEALTHY!) and as I predicted it was a big hit in our household as I'm sure it's fast on its way to becoming a family favorite. And while Big D is not a big fan of chicken, even he (a somewhat and sometime picky eater) gave it the thumbs up!
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup asparagus, sliced
4 cups bowtie pasta, cooked
1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil
1 cup deli roasted chicken, chopped (got a couple leftover chicken breasts?)
1 cup canned artichokes, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese
Saute garlic in oil over medium heat. Add asparagus, cook until crisp-tender.
