Ingredients

    1 Box of Fit and Active Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti

    1 Jar Priano Sun dried Tomato Pesto

    1 can Happy Harvest Asparagus

    1 can Happy Harvest Mushrooms Pieces and Stems

    20 oz Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs

    1/4 tsp Black Pepper

    1/4 tsp Garlic powder

    1/4 tsp Onion powder

    1/8 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

    1/4 tsp Salt

    2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tbsp (remove)

Tips

1. Multi-tasking will save you time (prep and marinade chicken while you wait for the water to boil, and cooking the chicken mixture while the pasta boils.)

2. All spices can be adjusted to your taste.

3. You can top with some cheese if you want but go sparingly.

4. This dish would go great with a salad.


Directions

Fill a large stock pot half way with water and place on your stove. Set the burner to high Prep the chicken while you wait for the water to boil. Cut the chicken into 1/2 inch pieces. Places cut chicken into a bowl and add all the spices and oil and let stand at least 15 minutes. When the water is boiling add your pasta. The pasta should only take about 12 to 15 minutes to boil. Preheat a good skillet on high heat (I use cast iron, because it can handle high temps). Brown the chicken mixture till done and then add the pesto, asparagus (drained) and the mushrooms (NOT drained). Stir these ingredients together and warm through. This should only take 2 or 3 minutes. Drain your pasta and add it to the chicken "sauce". Stirr all together and serve.
