Lemon Garlic Chicken Pasta with Broccoli

Garlic Lemon Chicken Pasta with Broccoli - Chew Nibble Nosh

Some of the best recipes don’t come from cookbooks, or generation after generation of family, time-tested tweaks.  Sometimes, the recipes on the back of a grocery store package are pretty darn good.  (Toll House cookies, anyone?)  This recipe, for our family, quickly became one of those back-of-the-box favorites after I found it on a box of pasta that I’d grabbed at Publix when we lived in Georgia.  I’ve tweaked it a bit from the original, but the ease, simplicity and taste of the one I found on the back of the box are still front and center.  It’s an easy weeknight meal, and perfect for those first few days back at school when everyone is trying to get back in the swing of a routine.

Grown Up Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

It’s no secret that I love good food.  Good food doesn’t have to mean fancy, though.  I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit that nothing makes me happier than a really good sandwich.  I remember watching Friends years ago, and while everyone was laughing over Joey’s devotion to his favorite sandwich, I felt his pain.  I understood.  A perfect sandwich is a terrible thing to waste.

I don’t know if I’d go this far, but I’m pretty close!
