As stated in yesterday, who really needs a reason to eat pasta? As much as pasta is filling and would love to be eaten as a meal by itself, healthy sides are needed. Like green beans. Fresh green beans to be exact. Slightly steamed to retain crispness and just a dash of salt. Now for the protein. Cheesy Pesto Stuffed Chicken was just the ticket to complete a new meal.
Modifications Made: Chicken was thinly sliced, leaving just enough thickness to split and fill with 1 tsp of pesto and 1/2 slice of provolone. Cooked till done, pesto and mozzarella was added atop and left to melt. Lemon juice and butter sauce along with freshly topped tomatoes and basil were omitted.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Quick and easy this meal was fabulous. The second time it is made, I will try the lemon juice and butter sauce along side fresh garlic pasta. Then the third time it is made, I would like to try the recipe as listed but served along side crunchy bread as the addition of tomatoes and basil leans more towards bruschetta and while bruschetta atop of garlic pasta would have been good, crunchy bread would be better.
