Last week our grocery store had the frozen meals of pasta and chicken in sauce for $6. You heated the mixture up in a skillet for about 15 minutes and had dinner on the table in about 20 minutes. They were called “family sized” but they were about 2 1/2 servings for my family. We bought two of them that we supplemented with a vegetable and a side salad. As we were making them for a quick evening meal I thought I could do better than this as far as taste, price, and amount of chicken in the meal.
Well, everyone thought this was better than the frozen meal! Yeah! As far as ease of making it I did take a bit longer and had to use 2 pans to cook it, one for the chicken and sauce and one for the pasta. But, overall it was really no harder than the frozen meal. My daughter said the hardest part seemed to be chopping the garlic and I think she was right.
We had enough leftovers for three small lunch portions which everyone was happy with. I love leftovers for them for lunch. Makes our days easier.
