Show Us Your Life- Favorite Dinner Recipe

This week we are sharing our favorite dinner recipes on the Kelly's Korner blog! Click here to share yours!

I have so many favorite meals! I thought I'd share a couple that our whole family loves to eat! 

1) Chicken Spaghetti- I use Pioneer Woman's recipe

Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti
You can click on the picture to see her recipe. She has such beautiful pictures with simple, step-by-step instructions! 

Here's what I do differently: 
* I use one can of cream of chicken soup and only one can of cream of mushroom soup
* I use just a little bit more broth
* I saute my onion and bell peppers together that way my kids don't notice them and it makes it taste better if my onion gets chopped a little too big 

We gobble this up- it's SO good! 

2) Bowtie Pasta Alfredo- SUPER EASY! 

This is a go-to recipe when I'm in a hurry! 

You can use any kind of pasta you'd like, but I use bowties, because they are pretty easy to cut up. Cook the pasta while you make your sauce! 

You can add just about anything you'd like into the pasta, but here's what I do:  

First, I chop some ham. I just use sandwich meat, so that I can use what's left for sandwiches the next day. I don't measure the ham, but I usually chop several pieces but not the whole pack. 

I also chop up a red or green bell peper. I like this to be diced fairly small. 

I put a little olive oil in a pan along with some minced garlic. Once the pan has warmed up, I add my ham and bell pepper. Saute until the bell pepper is tender. 

Then I melt a stick of butter and pour in one cup of heavy cream. Stir together and add about a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp of sage. Stir until it thickens up. If it's still too thin for you, add a little bit more parmesan cheese. 

Then I toss this with my cooked pasta and serve! 

I usually have these ingredients in my pantry, so it's an easy recipe to throw together when I'm in a hurry and don't really feel like cooking.
