It's summer-springtime, and the living is easy! Sunny, warm and in the 70's? Yes, I do believe we'll be grilling tonight! And faster than you can get the deck cushions out, we've got dinner on the table!
Light, fresh, and so flavorful - all of our favorite ingredients come together tonight! Fresh pesto, warm grilled chicken (with just a touch of Italian spices), your favorite Italian pasta...it's looking good! I had a pint of fresh and colorful grape tomatoes - so pretty and flavorful. A touch of fresh parmesan cheese and pine nuts, and everyone is happy tonight!
On my drive home I was trying to figure out how I could do a menu shake-up so that we could take advantage of the fabulous sunny day (and Skipper could do some grilling). And luckily we had all of the ingredients on hand. Happy Mama!
After a long day at the office, it is nice to be able to put a delicious and healthy dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, and even better when EVERYONE loves it. Even the little ones were gobbling it up and asking for seconds!
If you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table, you can make this even faster by using shredded Rotisserie Chicken. And for something a little special, fresh mozzarella is a nice addition - it gives this a little caprese flavor and flair.
Quick dinner and we gotta run - there's still time to get to the park for a little bit of fun!
