Bow Tie Pasta w/ Chicken, Peas and Pine Nuts



Last night's dinner was another one of those clean out the pantry/freezer concoctions. I don't think I've been to the grocery store in the last 3 weeks!
Bow Tie Pasta w/Chicken,Peas and Pine Nuts
Cook 1/2 pound of bow tie pasta in salted water. Meanwhile, saute 2 skinless-boneless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces in a skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil until browned. I seasoned mine with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add 1 large chopped clove of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of chili puree and 1 cup of thawed frozen peas, cook until peas are heated through. Top with toasted pine nuts and freshly grated Parmesan and serve.

Pine nuts and garlic. I had a experience once where friends invited me over for dinner and they made a pasta sauce with pine nuts and garlic. They did not know the difference between a garlic clove and bulb. They used the whole garlic bulb, not the clove like recipe asked, and it was way to strong of a sauce, we attributed it to the pine nuts. They phoned the next day to apologize about the garlic mix-up and a good laugh.
