Asian Chicken and Veggie Pasta

Asian Chicken and Pasta

We had the best meal on Monday night. All of the boys thought it was delish; some even said it tasted like restaurant food. Princess Pat didn’t want to try it…she has become a pasta purist and won’t eat anything that doesn’t look like Italian food. She’s two, so she doesn’t have a lot of clout in the food voting department. Asian Chicken and PastaFast forward a few years and all of the kids love it.  They walk into the kitchen with their noses in the air, sniffing, asking what smells SO good.  Even Princess Pat loves it.
