I was very excited to make Red Pepper Pasta. I discovered butternut pasta recently, which was amazing. That lead me to avocado pasta, an instant family favorite that I'm going to be making way more than I should. With these veggie-pasta creations under my belt, I thought Red Pepper Pasta was going to be amazing! But we all say meh. We ate it and we were full, but we didn't love it. I think I could have done a better job. I had a bag with shallots in it that I ordered on Monday, but I searched high and low and could not find them anywhere. So I ended up using dried shallots, and I might have added too many.
I'm excited about this week's meal plan. Only one recipe is a recipe that I've made for my family before, so I've got four new challenges this week.
Baked Pesto Chicken- This first time I made it, I used the same kind of tomatoes that Kristyn did. This time, I used some tomatoes left over from a recipe I made earlier in the week. I liked the original recipe better because these grape tomatoes were a little too sweet. It's a super easy recipe to make. You just arrange the ingredients in your pan and bake it, no babysitting required.
