Chicken and Snap Pea Pasta
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced into strips
1 pkg fresh or frozen sugar snap peas
2-3 cloves garlic-chopped
Parm cheese to taste
extra virgin olive oil to toss pasta
Saute snap peas in skillet with garlic cloves a small amount of water, just to where the peas will not burn. Cover and simmer to allow the garlic to flavor the peas, add chicken strips and simmer for another 5-10minutes. It's already cooked, so you're just allowing the garlic to flavor chicken!
Boil whole wheat pasta or any other pasta of choice, drain, drizzle with a little EVOO and set aside.
Get your single portion of pasta, add snap peas, chicken and garlic mixture and top with a little parm cheese! Toss and enjoy!! So simple and easy, yet SO delicious!
The reason I created this recipe last minute? I have been persuaded to try ZUMBA for the first time with my mother! She has been going for a few weeks now and loves it! She had been a member of Jazzercise for a long time, but with her favorite instructor leaving, she hadn't been able to fall in love with exercise like she had in the past(instructors make a HUGE difference!!), she decided to try something new! She loves ZUMBA! She thinks I'll love it, so it's worth a try right?
I'll let you know how it goes and wish me luck, shaking my booty!!
