How many of you are still going with your resolutions or goals? I made kitchen goals and I’m still slowly working through them. I have a whole year ;) but as far as resolutions..meh. It’s hard to give up anything food related when you love food so much, ya know? I guess I could’ve made a resolution to exercise more but honestly, I hate running. I can’t run for more than 20 minutes without sounding like a dying whale. Yeah, totally unattractive.

Anyway, I was going through my fridge, trying to figure out what to make for dinner and I came up with what you see above. I’d like to think it’s pretty healthy. Ya know, with the chicken, onions, spinach, and mushrooms. Oh, did I mention the entire 8 oz. tub of mascarpone cheese? Yeahhhhhhhh….I tried to make this healthy. I just can’t resist a creamy pasta sauce. They’re my favorite type of sauces and I just had to make this sinful :) I love the consistency of the mascarpone cheese in this with the veggies. It’s a well-rounded meal that’s easy enough to make for a busy weeknight.

OH-TAY, I’m off to nurse my neck. I woke up this morning and couldn’t move it to the right. And now as I’m typing this, I have my head tilted to the left because apparently holding my head up straight irritates the nerve too. Gah, this is the worst feeling. Don’t you hate when that happens?! It’s like, “what am I doing in my sleep? How am I contorting my neck in such a way that it’s unmovable in the morning?!” Maybe stuffing my face with this pasta will take my mind off the pain..

3 cups of dried pasta for 2 servings?

you do you, Susie! if you feel that 1.5 cups of pasta is too much for 1 serving, then go ahead and adjust serving size for yourself!

My husband and I can't stop talking about how great this dish is. He wants me to print it out and stick it on the refrigerator. So fresh and light. Great flavors. Thank You for sharing.
