Farfalle with Crispy Prosciutto and Peas

I was, admittedly, overwhelmed by December.  I was so overwhelmed by the enormity of it that…get this…I often cooked dinner and didn’t take pictures.  What?!?!  I know.  The first time I made this, in December, my family went nuts over it.  They enjoyed it so much that I immediately regretted my laziness and wished I’d taken out my camera.  When my family found out that I didn’t take pictures of the process to share with you, they were all pretty excited…because it meant they got to have it again in the very near future.

Chicken with Potatoes, Peas & Coconut Curry Sauce

Chicken with Potatoes, Peas & Coconut Curry Sauce - Chew Nibble Nosh

This is a great recipe to have on hand when you really want to go out to your favorite Indian restaurant for dinner, or grab carry-out from them, but it’s too darn cold to go and you’d rather just stay home, put on your pajamas and slippers, and stay warm.

It’s really a simple dish to throw together, and for you curry naysayers out there…my kids even liked this.  It is warm and cozy, with just enough heat to put us in a warmer frame of mind on a cold, winter night.

Cold weather and a stuffy nose:  Put those two things together and soup for dinner is really the best option  My entire family has been battling a cold, and trading it back and forth, over the past week or so.  Now, it’s my turn, and I soup was what my cloudy head needed.  I turned to a recipe I hadn’t made in ages, but I knew it would warm our tummies and feel good on our scratchy throats.

Pasta with Peas and Prosciutto

Do you have fifteen minutes to spare in the name of a good meal?  If so, I can get you from the stove to the dinner table in that small snippet of time.  I know you guys like easy weeknight meals, and they don’t get much easier than this.  In fact, last night, my husband picked up Emily from her theater class and I had him call me as he left for home, so that I could see how fast I could move this dinner.  It’s a fifteen minute drive from her class to our house…and here’s what happened during that time.
