Alright loves, I’m back with another Honeybee Health recipe for ya! You all know I am always here for an easy and healthy meal in a hurry so today I’m sharing my healthier take on pasta. I was getting burnt out of heavy meat sauce so decided to switch things up with a more Mediterranean style packed with healthy fats, veggies and protein that you won’t feel guilty eating!
First let me just say that I have never been a measure-it-out kind of gal. I’m all about using what I have on hand and adjusting the recipe to taste. So if you’re okay with that….read on!
What You’ll Need:
Garlic (fresh or minced in a jar)
Olives (I prefer the big fatty ones from the Olive Bar at our local grocery but you can get the jar option as well)
Sun-dried Tomatoes (jarred or I prefer the marinated ones from the self serve section from Whole Foods)
A large bunch of Kale
Organic Chicken Breast
Pasta of your choosing
One Jar of Pasta Sauce (only if you prefer a red sauce- I made mine only with olive oil, garlic and onions)
….and a glass of wine if you’re like me and cooking is just so much better with a glass of your favorite vino in hand 😉
This recipe is super simple and pretty straight forward. I am all about one-pot meals and this one is almost that. First I like to cook up the chicken. I add a good amount of olive, garlic and onions to my pan and saute for a couple minutes. Next I add in the chicken and add sea salt. Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly, I put on my pasta to boil.
While the pasta is boiling I de-stem my kale (the more the better in my opinion!) and toss it in with the chicken along with my olives and sun-dried tomatoes. I leave it on low for 3-5 minutes until the pasta is ready to be added in. I like to take the pasta and add into the pan and mix it all together. Lastly, I add on a little fresh grated parmesan and you’re done! It’s SUPER easy, tasty, and nice change up the hubby always appreciates!
