Legend has it that this pasta was invented by Sirio Maccioni, owner of the fabled Le Cirque, during a trip to Nova Scotia. Maccioni was tasked with cooking a meal for a group of culinary luminaries, but when it came time for him to cook, he wasn’t able to find any of the ingredients he needed for the dish he had planed. Instead, he scraped together a pasta using the ingredients that were in the fridge: asparagus, broccoli, peas, mushrooms and zucchini with a cream sauce.

Let’s face it, sometimes chicken breasts can be a tad….well, boring. Not this time!

I love the Asian flavors at play here in this simple weeknight dish. This chicken just requires an hour to marinate, but other than that it’s on the table in less than twenty minutes.

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I’m sure many of you are looking for an easy delicious meal to celebrate this adopted holiday. If you’re anything like me, Cinco de Mayo is probably more of an excuse to drink margaritas with friends than to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Rather than slave over a hot stove while my guests drink all my booze, I like to make simple dishes that can be prepared in advance.

I love the somewhat retro snack of potato chips and sour cream dip. Trust me when I say I could go through an entire bag of chips in one sitting! It may or may not have happened before. Just saying. However, my life pretty much changed for the better when I realized that I could bake my potato chips and they’d still taste delicious.

Aside from time it takes for the chicken to bathe in a garlicky marinade, this dish only takes a few minutes of chopping and a few minutes of stir-frying, making it perfect for a quick weeknight meal. Its preparation goes much like most East Asian stir-fries, but the decidedly West Asian ingredients make for a tantalizing array of flavors that will lure your taste buds into rapt attention.

Save Time and Eat Well With Simple Garlic Bread

Between running to the post office to ship orders and shuttling my sister and I to ballet, piano, and soccer practice, my mother managed to take time out of every evening to cook a balanced dinner for us.

A far cry from today’s fad diets, we ate a little of everything in moderation. The meals were sensible with a starch, protein and vegetables in an appealing array of colors and textures. This occasionally included a piece of buttery garlic bread along with a salad and an eight ounce serving of pasta.

The second it gets hot outside I make salsa. I can’t really explain that fact but it’s true. Great weather is just one excuse to whip up some homemade salsa, make margaritas and enjoy an impromptu happy hour with friends. One type of salsa I especially love is fruit salsa because it’s so fun to come up with new sweet and spicy combinations.
