Supper: A meal taken at the close of the day; the evening meal. February 26, 2010

Filed under: Bacon,Chicken,Cooking,Garlic,Italian,Mushrooms,Pasta,Pioneer Woman,Recipes,Supper — thesiscochick @ 12:39 am

PASTA! PASTA! PASTA! (read: CARBS! CARBS! CARBS!) I saw an amazing recipe for pasta on The Pioneer Woman. It inspired me to take my own pasta adventure. I don’t think I’ve seen my guy have that many helpings of dinner in all the time we’ve been together. I’m going to be honest, I did cheat a little and buy a loaf of bread from Homeland that already had garlic butter smeared inside. One of those, stick it the oven for 5 minutes, cheats. It was well worth it! I saved myself time and frustration and was rewarded with the perfect addition to my pasta dinner. This dish doesn’t have a name as far as I know. I think I will call it Chicken Bacon Mushroom Linguine.

Things You Will Need

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Small Onion Chopped
5 Strips Bacon
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Sliced Red Bell Pepper
1 Container Sliced Mushrooms
1 Cup Green Beans
3/4 Cup Half & Half
1/4 Cup White Cooking Wine
1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan
1 Package Linguine

Boil water for pasta. Dice slices of bacon, onion, and mince garlic and combine into a skillet with olive oil. Let the bacon get crispy and the onions carmelized. I put two frozen bonless skinless chicken breasts on my indoor grill for about 8 minutes. After fully cooked cut into bite sized cubes. ( The chicken is a matter of preference. There are so many ways to cook a chicken breast and no matter how you do it, it will be covered in creamy goodness in the end.)
Add enitre container of mushrooms, sliced red bell pepper, and green beans (I used a handfull of the fresh green beans, the ones that you snap) to skillet along with the white cooking wine. (Don’t for get to add the pasta to your boiling pot of water.) Let simmer until mushrooms are golden and glazed.
Stir in half & half and Parmesan, stirring frequently until sauce thickens to desired consistency. (Once pasta is tender, drain water!) Pour contents of skillet into pot of pasta and toss together. Garnish with more shredded Parmesan and enjoy!

*Disclaimer* I never once said this was healthy!

Dapper: neat; trim; smart. February 25, 2010

“Warrior and Bowtie Expert. Linebacker and Poet. Jock and Treehugger: Dhani Jones understandsthe extremes of life. An NFL player with the Cincinnati Bengals, Jones rides a bike to the stadium for practices & games, works with Al Gore’s climate change initiative and is on Feeding America’s entertainment council to end hunger. Jones is now starring in the Travel Channel’s new original series, DHANI TACKLES THE GLOBE. By actively participating in some of the most beloved national pastimes from around the world, Dhani discovers that sports have the universal ability to open a window into a culture; define a destination; and unlock a common passion in people that is as different as it is familiar. His huge love for living, authority on sport and understanding of the big issues of climate change make Dhani a key player in sport and sustainability. No wonder that in Hindi, “Dhani” means thinking man.” -Biography on Dhani’s website.

I had to post this item from Dhani’s website because it eloquently describes everything I see in him. What more could a girl ask for? I found out who Dhani Jones is not by watching football, but by watching the Travel Channel. I just love Dhani Tackles the Globe! Follow the “cyber stalker” links below!
