Pasta la Passion

Pasta la Passion

This is a comfort food but has tons nutrients/veggies but also will fill you up. This recipe is near and dear to my heart as it is a recipe my mom made for me weekly growing up. Feel free to add any any other veggies you would like; something I add in sautéed spinach and onion!

Now, I use chickpea pasta as it is filled with protein, has less carbs and is high in fiber but any pasta will do. Bow tie is always a great shape for this dish! I also use grass fed butter instead of the usual vegetable oil based butter because of the flavor and health benefits of ghee but you can sub whatever you have in your kitchen for the sauce! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Pasta of any kind

  • 2 cloves minced Garlic

  • 1 pound of no hormone/organic Chicken Breast (usually 2 breasts)

  • 1 tsp basil (dried or fresh)

  • 1 cup Chicken Bone Broth or stock

  2. Saute oil and garlic in pan for a minute

  3. Cut chicken into strips or cubes, lightly salt and pepper and add to pan (stir and cook until almost done and remove from pan, set aside)
