What I made for dinner 12/18/2015

Creamy Cheesy Pesto Pasta with Broccoli and Chicken

Kids were with their father, so whipped up this dish for my fella and myself.  Easy.

1 lb bowtie pasta - boil it up

Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.

Add store-bought jar of Basil Pesto (1 cup). Or make your own, if you're sassy like that. Stir until a little bubbly.

Slowly add 1/2 cup of whipping cream.  Stir stir stir, until incorporated.

Add pepper to your liking.

Now here's the fun part:  add some Italian 3 Cheese Blend you picked up from the fancy cheese section at The Krogers (you can add an -s legally if it's prefaced by "The.")  I don't know how much, just add, stir, add, stir until smooth.

Microwave some frozen broccoli.  Throw it in the sauce.  Stir.

Throw in some canned chunk chicken breast or whatever cooked chicken you have on hand.  Stir.

Toss the sauce with your pasta.  Serve with love.
