When I need some comfort food and a quick meal I think of Chicken Parmesan. You can’t beat the taste of crispy panko breaded chicken with melted mozzarella alongside spaghetti topped with the tastiest marinara sauce. Most marinara sauces are made from canned tomatoes but I like to use fresh tomatoes when I can. There’s just something special about fresh tomato sauce with fresh herbs. This is also a frugal meal as I can make a meal for 4 using just one chicken breast. Don’t worry, no one goes away hungry. A hunk of french bread and a salad makes this a complete meal.

We’ve been dodging April showers this past week. They’ve been more like downpours than showers at times. The first day we had a reprieve I wanted to get outside and pop the cover off the grill. Over the winter month’s I used the wok to cook my veggies but today I thought I would cook outside and enjoy some sunshine. I sliced some zucchini, baby bella mushrooms and onion that tasted fantastic with a drizzle of lemon flavored olive oil, salt and pepper. I paired the veggies with some tortellini, tomatoes and herbs to make a healthy vegetarian pasta dish.
