Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta

Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta



4 tomatoes
1 onion,
1 full garlic bulb
8 fresh basil leaves,
1 stick of thyme,
8 fresh oregano leaves
4 fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup of pistachios (optional/you can add more or less)
3/4 cup red cooking wine,
1/4 cup of olive oil
box of rotini or penne pasta
and 4 chicken breast


Start the pasta in a separate pot. Cut the Chicken in 1 inch cubes and place in the pan with light olive oil. Turn the stove on to a medium high and cook the chicken till it is all cooked. Cut the tomatoes, onion, in fourths and then take the outside skin off of the garlic, but keep it in a full clove. In a blender add the tomatoes, onions, garlic cloves,   4 basil leaves, 2 mint leaves, 4 oregano leaves, half of the thyme leaves, cooking wine and olive oil and blend it. When blended add it to the already cooked chicken. When the pasta is finished, drain the water and add the pasta to the pan. Chop the rest of the herbs and with the pistachios add them to the pasta. Cook for about 5 minutes and serve!

Notes: If you don’t have a big enough pot you can keep the pasta in the original pot and just serve the chicken tomato sauce on top.

Sprinkle Parmesan or Mozzarella on top!



Just another one of those introductions

So, Hello!

My Name is Elizabeth, but I tend to go by Emma, Why? Well that’s for another post.  I’m a 23 year old college student that has been in college for too long and is kind of tired. I currently study Vocal Performance, but I have other hobbys suchs as writing fantasy stories,  making new recipes to test out on people, drawing, painting and playing video games till the sun comes up. Being creative is what I love to do, and I usually seek out different outlets to express it. I also have been in this new chapter of my life, where being healthy and going to the gym have been a big part of my everyday routine, but because I’m a broke college students I face the sad reality, that money simple doesn’t grow on trees.

So.. you might be wondering why? What is the point!? Honestly I have lots of random stories and things I ran into that I would love to share with people. Not only that, I am also constantly doing all things, like creating new foods that I would love to share the recipe too… and other things, so yea!

Warning: I can’t english grammar to save my life, but that doesn’t mean I don’t try to work on it!
