Weekly Wal-Lah: White Italian

     Let's get sexy and make an extremely easy foreign dish! I'm far from Italian, and chances are, so are you. But anyone can put this together! And it has some pretty healthy qualities as a bonus. Sexy and healthy???? Sign me up! I even threw this one together in a time crunch, 1hr before leaving for work.

Dish #1 Creamy Parmesany Noodles with Chicken: First, on a pan covered in foil (for super easy clean up)season a few chicken breast with Montreal Steak Seasoning, dried oregano and chicken rub, place in oven on bottom rack with oven on Broil.
Then, place a pot of water on the stove to boil and when it reaches a rolling boil place in 1 package of whole wheat thin spaghetti noodles.
While that's going, in a large skillet with olive oil, stir fry together 1 package of sliced mushrooms, 1 package of halved grape tomatoes, 1 jar of half and peeled garlic cloves, 1 small package of fresh basil- sliced, 1 bundle of sliced Italian parsley, and as much sliced fresh spinach as you can squoosh into the pan.

When the noodles are tender, drain in colander, put back in pot, mix in entire contents of skillet and 1 jar of your favorite fettuccine alfredo sauce.
 Your chicken should be tender and white (hope you didn't forget to turn it while you were doing everything else); take it out of oven, slice on a cutting board, and use to top off your noodle mix!

Dish #2 Wheat Garlic Bread:  Leave your oven on Broil, butter one side of whole wheat sliced bread (obviously sourdough or french bread would be WAY better, but we are being thrifty and healthy this time), covered buttered side with McCormick Garlic Bread Sprinkle, toast in oven (it only takes a couple of minutes so don't let it burn!), turn to toast other side and done!

     Wal-Lah! Speaking of sexy, I have faith that you can throw together this Italian meal faster than Fonzie could get into a girl's pants on Happy Days. "Aaaaeeeyyy.................."
