I have chicken in the fridge to use so I came here to find a recipe! You're not officially my go-to site for new yummy recipes.

I'm making this one tonight!!

Another good one to add to our pasta repertoire. Our son LOVES pasta, especially bow ties.

(Thanks for letting Marcia know about my chocolate roundup! :-) )

Sorry for being away for awhile...
