How did my hopes of an “easy” meal turn out to be so gourmet? I often ask myself why do I do this when my kids don’t even appreciate it fully or like all the ingredients! My youngest doesn’t like eating noodles and my other two little kids LOVE noodles but nothing green. So sadly, this meal was not for them. But as for my husband and me we really enjoy making this meal.
Years ago when we were first dating we went out to eat at a little Italian restaurant that since has gone out of business. We both fell in love with a dish that had a hint of lemon with chicken, spinach, mushrooms and pine nuts. We were hooked. So as things go we have recreated this little dish. This has become a staple dish that we make for our friends and family often. So when I looked in the fridge and had these ingredients I said, “Tonight is the night for Lemon Chicken Farfalle” it’s impossible to make such a gourmet meal with out our favorite french bread too! It was delicious. Since my little family will only eat half of a french bread I always have an extra to make our favorite Pesto Chicken Sandwiches for tomorrows dinner. Yum.[buymeapie-recipe id=’773′]
