What's for Dinner?

This meal used very few pre-made or processed foods so there is less waste generated and no trees were harmed in the making of this meal.

Chicken with Zuchinni, Onions, Garlic, Pasta, Olive Oil, Butter, Parmasan Cheese with parsley and chives added at the end.

Today we had chicken cut up and pan sauteed in first cold pressed Greek olive oil and real butter. Finish that up and take out of the pan and saute in the same pan: one medium cut up fresh zuchinni with one Vidalia onion and then add two cloves of minced garlic after the onion and zuchinni have cooked for a few minutes because the garlic will cook too fast if added with them. I used pre-minced from the jar. Add extra oil if needed and this is when I add more butter. Add chicken to this with a little pasta water and the pasta. This is a good place to add some milk or cream but not mandatory for this meal. Cook and stir until it thickens and then add the parmasan cheese as wanted to taste.

In boiling water I added a small palm full of salt and then one half box of rotini. Cook until al-dente and add to the chicken mixture. Mix well.

Enjoy! We did!
