So, it’s Tuesday but here is a very simple recipe for a busy Monday evening. I used some veggies I had a round the house- a zucchini, tomato, red onion, and broccoli.
We have finally eaten our way out of the food extravaganza that was Easter! I think the ham held out for over a week. Ham sandwiches, ham salad, ham frittata, oh my! To pull us out of total pork overload I made a roast chicken. This looks like it takes a while but it is really easy and you can do a lot with the leftovers.
I picked up this chicken at Village Market for less than $5. I made a rub of EVOO, black pepper, salt, herbs de Provence, and McCormick’s chicken seasoning. Place in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. I chopped some fresh broccoli, covered with a little EVOO, salt and pepper and placed it all around the chicken. Then, placed the whole thing back in the oven for about 15 minutes. Served with some brown rice.
With the leftover chicken you can make your own chicken stock or chicken salad for lunches. I highly recommend this one! Lately, I have been working on lowering our monthly bills as much as possible. I am going back to school to start working on my doctorate and no longer working full time so we will have a limited income. One way to save money is to cut back on the grocery bill so prepare to see some healthy budget recipes on AGIHK over the next months!
I had an acorn squash in the pantry that I wanted to use and I picked up these organic spinach fettuccine noodles at the market that looked interesting. They are made with wheat semolina, spinach powder (not sure what that is) and artichoke flour.
I roasted the squash in a 350 degree oven while I hopped on the treadmill. Then, I scraped out squash and mixed it with steamed broccoli, cooked noodles and added a little garlic that I sauteed in a tablespoon of EVOO and some fresh lemon juice.
Very creamy and delicious! I really like these noodles and I would definitely pick them up again when they are on sale. My next project is to make “traditional” fettuccine alfredo with Greek yogurt…
