Pasta dishes are a great start (or end) to long work weeks. This is simple meal that is quick and easy to make on Sunday nights for dinner and convenient as leftovers for Mondays. It also provides a great solution for the random bits of food left in the refrigerator at the end of the week as you can throw everything together in one dish.
I’m using broccolini, sun-dried tomatoes, chicken, garlic, butter, pesto, shell pasta, and a bit of grated fontina cheese. My go-to composition for no brainer pastas usually consists of either a pesto or tomato-based sauce, a type of poultry, one or two kinds of vegetables, copious amounts of garlic and butter, and cheese for finishing.
And there you have it – a filling, but healthy meal that covers all nearly all aspects of the food pyramid in just 20 minutes.
