Quite a title, isn’t it? Truthfully, I didn’t know what to call it other than dinner. But it was a little passed dinner time and I was hungry and there was no waiting for delivery. I rummaged through the fridge and pantry. I pulled out pasta, chicken breasts, frozen peas, leftover pasta sauce and BACON.
The wheels were turning. It would be nothing special but it would be quick and fulfilling.
Here is my BS dinner recipe: (serves 2, btw)
3 chicken breasts seasoned with salt, pepper and basil
2 slices of bacon
2 cups of marinara sauce
1/4 cup half and half
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 cups pasta, cooked
I crisped up the two slices of bacon and crumbled them. When they were nice and crispy, I set them aside on some paper towels. The bacon fat didn’t go to waste- don’t you worry! I cooked the chicken in it.
I heated the marinara sauce in a large skillet and added some half and half followed by the peas.
When the sauce was heated through and the peas were tender, I tossed in the cooked pasta.
Threw it all in a bowl and ate it. Served BR and as he dug in he asked “what is this?”
“I don’t know what it is, but it has bacon”.
And it was good.
