MMMM! Monday night!! Chicken Penne Pasta!

Evening all!!! So it's that dreaded day of the week-MONDAY! But I will say for a Monday, my day wasn't all that bad. It was long, but I had plenty to do-so Yay! for that.

 Craig is going out of town tomorrow for work, and has been stuck at the airport all day working on the camera install for the plane they have to use for the job. Needless to say, he is worn out and is looking forward to dinner! He said to call him when it's almost ready-so no can chili for him!!! Tonight's menu is Chicken Penne Pasta-it has become one of our favorites, and it's ready in 30 minutes!

Music: A little of the hard stuff tonight-some old skool tunes GNR(Guns N Roses!)-welcome to the our jungle indeed!!!

Wine: I haven't even gotten that far-WTH??!! I will come back to that one!

So here it is-the main event.....

Chicken Penne Pasta

8 ounces uncooked penne pasta
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into 1/2 in. pieces
1 small green pepper chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1 8oz jar marinara sauce
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/3 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

Cook pasta according to the package directions, drain. In a large non-stick skillet stir-fry the chicken, pepper, onion and garlic in the oil until the chicken is no longer pink. Add the pasta, mushrooms, sauce and italian seasoning. Heat through about 10 minutes on medium. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese-let stand until the cheeses is melted! MMMM!!!

This has become a favorite of mine-it's quick and easy. You can cut down on the cutting by buying pre-sliced mushrooms, and the jar of minced garlic that you can find in the produce section!

Recommended accompainments:
Garlic Bread.
We are also have in a small slice of key lime pie after cause it's Monday and I say why the heack not!!!!
