Sauté Instructions:

In a very hot sauté pan, add:

extra virgin olive oil

pre-cooked penne

cubed roma tomatoes

red onions

kosher salt & cracked pepper

Sear noodles, stirring occasionally until steaming hot


fresh spinach

1 oz. fresca sauce (recipe below)

Toss to combine, serve with feta cheese

For the Parmesan chicken:

First off, you may want to pound the chicken down to about ¼ inch thick, or you could butterfly cut the chicken, so it’s not too thick. This will allow the chicken to cook fully through, while not over-doing the breading.

Combine breadcrumbs, flour, parmesan, and Italian seasoning in one bowl, and cream in another.

Dredge chicken in cream and dip in bowl of breadcrumbs/flour/parmesan.

Fry chicken in pan with some hot oil, a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
