Chicken Penne

I have posted this recipe before.... Here's the link.  However, I wanted to figure a different way to cook it instead of in the microwave.  Something just doesn't sound  right about that.  But feel free to use the microwave version at the link above if you wish.

3 garlic cloves
1 small container cherry or grape tomatoes
3 cups cooked penne pasta
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
2 cups cooked diced chicken breasts
basil, oregano and garlic pepper to taste

Cook the noodles and drain setting aside in a large bowl.  Saute the cherry tomatoes with garlic until tomatoes are tender.  Then mash the tomatoes.  Cook and dice the chicken with seasonings.
Toss it all together and serve warm.

This recipe was adapted from a Pampered Chef recipe.

Bacon & Egg Biscuits

This was a quick and easy supper.  Well I guess it's a more traditional breakfast food, but we had it at supper time!

Bacon cooked
Almond Flour Biscuit

Cook your bacon.  Fry the eggs, trying to keep them as circular as possible.  Click the link to see my recipe for almond flour biscuits.  Or use your own biscuit recipe.
