  1. Sauté Instructions:
  2. In a very hot sauté pan, add:
  3. extra virgin olive oil
  4. pre-cooked penne
  5. cubed roma tomatoes
  6. red onions
  7. kosher salt & cracked pepper
  8. Sear noodles, stirring occasionally until steaming hot
  9. Add:
  10. fresh spinach
  11. 1 oz. fresca sauce (recipe below)
  12. Toss to combine, serve with feta cheese

  13. For the Parmesan chicken:
  14. 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.
  15. Combine breadcrumbs, flour, parmesan, and Italian seasoning in one bowl, and cream in another.
  16. Dredge chicken in cream and dip in bowl of breadcrumbs/flour/parmesan.
  17. Fry chicken in pan with some hot oil, a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
