Chicken and Stuffing

Well yesterday was another day of what can I cook tonight without going to the store...So I went to the recently discovered website from my last post and found this:

6 chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken
1 box of stuffing mix
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter

Put the chicken in the bottom of the pan. Mix together the milk and soup and pour on top. Then layer the stuffing. Top with the melted butter. Cook at 350 for 50 minutes (or however long in takes for the chicken to cook- I think mine took closer to an hour but part of it was still a little frozen).

It smelled so good and did not disappoint. Easy and good- my kind of recipe.

Snow Day Pasta

Ok so here we are at home and the roads are covered with ice. I am trying to get creative with the food I have at home so I made this sausage pasta. It was pretty good. Here is what I came up with.

4 sausage links (these were sundried tomato ones)
olive oil
1/2 box angel hair pasta
red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese
small bottle of white wine

So I started by cooking the angel hair pasta. In a separate pan I started with the sausage links and some olive oil. I waited until they were warm then added the pasta, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, and basil to taste. Then added about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and a little over half a small bottle of white wine. Cook until the wine reduces and mix thoroughly.

We enjoyed it:) Serve with italian bread. Happy cooking! :)

PS- also found this website today- You can enter the ingredients you have at home and it will give you recipes you can make! Awesome!
