Penne Franco

Hello everyone!

I hope you all have been enjoying your week so far.  The weather, here, has turned very cold and windy!  I actually sent my son to school in his heavy coat this morning. 

With the cooler months ahead, I'm sure we are all thinking about what good comfort foods we can cook up in the kitchen.  My husband loves to cook.  (Yay!) So, I wanted to share this recipe with you that he cooked the other night.  It is from Carrabba's Restaurant.  I will attach a link to the printable recipe at the end of this post.  

First, you start with these ingredients.

boneless chicken breasts, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, kalamata olives, garlic, penne pasta



You first want to prepare your chicken to go on the grill.


Then grill your chicken.


Cut-up your chicken into bite size pieces and cut-up your sun dried tomatoes.


Saute the mushrooms.


Begin boiling your pasta.



Saute your garlic and sun-dried tomatoes  in some olive oil.


Add the cooked pasta to all other ingredients to cook together in the pan.


After it's cooked it will look like this.


Then serve with garlic bread and top with shredded cheese if desired.



It was very good!  We didn't add any cheese to ours because we forgot to buy it!  LOL!  But, fresh shredded Parmesan cheese would've been perfect on it.

Bon Appetit!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
