There will be some of you, in other parts of the country, that will not believe what I am about to say... BUT... It's got to be said: It was 93 degrees yesterday!!!! I swear on everything good and holy... 93 degrees! I mean it's March - my parents, in Nebraska, received a wonderful 7" of snow on Sunday. Isn't the weather just so damn amazing??
Anywhoooooo... I should move on to the food before I anger some one :) This meal was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. If brie wasn't so expensive, I would seriously make this pasta once a week. It was heavenly!
Brie and Chicken Pasta
Inspired by The Meat and Potatoes Foodie
2 small chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
8-10 oz penne or mostaccioli pasta
1 small zucchini squash, cut into matchsticks
7oz brie cheese with herbs, cubed and chilled
Fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Place pasta back in pot and add the zucchini and chicken; toss to combine. Stir in the cheese cubes until everything starts to melt. Add pasta water if needed to thin out the cheese sauce. Stir in the basil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
