I didn't want to go to the grocery or eat out tonight so we had a dig-in-the-pantry-and-be-innovative dinner tonight. Yeah! Sometimes it's a success and sometimes is a fail but it's always fun. Here's what I found: bow-tie pasta (Elijah Requested) big can of tomato sauce, garlic, chicken tenders, 2 1/2 bags of mozzarella cheese, a little cream and onions. I can work with this. I dug out an old recipe I had from some friends of our's (Matt & Laura) for a yummy baked rigatoni with a tomato cream sauce that I thought I could mix up a bit.
1 large box of bow tie pasta
1 large can of tomato sauce
8 oz bag of mozzarella cheese
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1- 2 cloves garlic
Package of Chicken Tenders (just as much as you'd like to have in your pasta)
And here we go...
Preheat oven to 350 and heat olive oil in skillet.
|Salt and Pepper Chicken Tenders|
|Add to heated skillet. Salt and pepper the other side of the meat. Let chicken cook on that side with out moving it around for a few minutes. The meat will release its self from the pan when it is seared and ready to be turned.|
Turn it and sear the other side. See the pink- It's okay, we're going to finish baking the chicken in the oven.
Bake Chicken in oven at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until cooked completely cooked.
