Pasta Al Fresco

 A few weeks ago on our anniversary, we went to a new noodles restaurant in our hometown. We found the food to be delicious and the atmosphere pleasant, but the prices a little too high. I had a bowl of pasta, and I tried to imitate it for dinner last night, and found it to be pretty close!

Here is my rough recipe:

1 package of Penne pasta (whole grain or white)
1/2 of a large red onion
1/4 bag of Spinach
1/2 of large ripe tomato
Two grilled chicken breasts, cubed
Several cloves of roasted garlic (or minced fresh)
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper, each sprinkled well

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain water and add olive oil, coating the pasta well. Add fresh veggies and chicken. Serve!

We all enjoyed this warm pasta dinner with fresh veggies. It was easy, especially since my hubby grilled the chicken for me! (and extra chicken for later this week!) We topped it with parmesan cheese.

Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear your review!

So glad we have a variety to eat, but I do wonder what manna was like...

Numbers 11:4-6

The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost—also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna! 

Leviticus 2:13
Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.

Mark 9:50
Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”
