2-21...spinach fettuccine w mushrooms, baby broccoli, and chicken

This was one of those "cook what's in the fridge" dinners.


Baby broccoli
Portabello mushrooms
Chicken breast
Olive oil
Garlic and onion
Dry white win
Lemon juice
Dry basil, oregano,


Brown the chicken and remove.  Saute the garlic, onion, and celery until soft, then add the mushrooms and cook for about 5- 10 minutes before adding the broccoli.  Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and add to the pan, along with the seasoning and several splashes of wine.  About 4-5 minutess before the pasta is ready add some lemon juice and several slices of small fresh tomatoes (more for coloring than anything else).


This made good use of the ingredients on hand.  Bacon would have added another dimension, but the chicken breast was thawed and had to be used.
