This restaurant we go to has "snow peas chicken pasta" and I wanted to recreate a (healthier) version at home. So I did.
I used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning as my only sauce. The pasta was my remaining "dried tomato" spaghetti (tastes really good and unique). Cut up chicken breast mixed with scallops and shrimp. The peas added a really nice touch. I added a lot more shrimp and peas than you see in a restaurant, and a lot less oil and cream (ie none of either).
This was so, so, so delicious. And of course I can't remember why. I don't think this is a unique meal I've made (I'm obviously a fan of salmon), but this was just stellar.
I think it was because I added the scallops to the mushrooms. And used a generous amount of cheese in the beans. Because, you know, cheese.
The red stuff is smoked paprika, my most favourite spice ever. The sauce was made from smoked salmon cream cheese. My most favourite cream cheese ever.
For some reason I'm particularly proud of this one. It wasn't hard or complicated (obviously never is, I don't have that kind of patience). But it was very yummy.
Blue Menu (superstore) has pretty fantastic quality frozen beef patties, in different kinds. Apparently their veggie patties are also pretty good (I wouldn't know myself).
This is Costco mashed potatoes, Superstore beef patty, and Saveon veggies. And Costco Parmesan. How's that for name dropping?
Heinz BBQ sauce on top. Since I'm name dropping and all.
