|Tonight's Masterpiece ~ Spaghetti with chicken and vegetables|
|Getting ready to create the pasta|
When kneaded for ten minutes or so the pasta dough becomes soft and pliable. I love the beautiful color and texture of the fresh dough.
|I love the way the spaghetti looks as it comes through the roller|
There is definitely a technique to making fresh pasta. It will require some practice but, before long you will know the dough is ready by the way it feels as you knead it.
|Nothing tastes like fresh pasta|
Fresh pasta cooks much more quickly then the dry version and the taste will tempt you to make your own from now on.
|Use veggies you have on hand to create a colorful dish|
I used vegetables I had on hand
red orange and yellow peppers
Red pepper flake
Sun dried tomato
Salt & Pepper
|Adding the chicken to the veggies|
|I roasted two bone- in chicken breasts, removed the meat from the bones and added the chicken to the veggies. Shrimp or scallops would work beautifully in this dish as well.|
|Total under $10.00 for a feast that includes the leftovers I will use for my husband's lunch tomorrow|
|Fast easy and oh so delicious|
