Going to the Farmers Market is one of my favorite Saturday morning activities. I strive to shop local as much as I can, especially when I’m cooking for my family.
Feeding a family of five can get expensive, and when there are three growing kids and one hungry man, pasta goes a long way. I love a good pasta dish, but try to cut back on the heavy sauces. For this recipe I used Wishbone’s Garlic Parmesan Salad dressing as my base for the pasta.
Fresh tomatoes from the Farmers Market and some mozzarella cheese and dinner was complete.
Pasta shells (I use bow tie pasta but it’s just a matter of preference.)
One package of Chicken Sausage; cut into bite sized pieces
One large tomato; diced
Salad dressing (add to taste)
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
Boil pasta as directed on box. I cook the whole box for our family of 5. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet. Sauté Chicken in skillet until brown. Add tomatoes during the last few minutes, cook enough to soften. Season with salt and pepper. Drain pasta and mix with salad dressing. Top with chicken mixture and mozzarella cheese. And dinner is done!
Filling enough but light on the calories. Enjoy!
