Linguini with Green Peas, Corn, and Chicken

This is my first time  incorporating  corn and peas into a pasta dish.  The kids loved it so I have made this twice already.  The first time I made it, I did not put  tomatoes and thought it needs a little  bit of tang so the  second time, I added tomatoes and it tasted so much better.  Below is the recipe..
 Ingredients:

  • 1/2 box of linguine pasta
  • 2 chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 cup of frozen corn
  • 1 cup of frozen  peas
  • 1 tsp. of fresh minced basil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbp olive oil
  • 1 cup of grated 4-cheese mix

 Direction:

  • Boil the pasta according to  direction on the box.  Drain the water  when al dente, set aside.
  • Put the olive  oil in a  hot pan.  Brown the chicken cube, then add the  shallot, garlic, tomatoes and the frozen veggies.
  • Add the  ranch, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Add the cheese and pasta  when the meat and veggies are done

 Just  spread the   basil on top for garnish and enjoy!
My husband enjoys pasta dishes but we limit our intake of pasta so I just make it once in a while to satisfy his craving.

That looks delicious! Just the picture is making me hungry!

I would never have thought of putting peas and corn in pasta either. It sounds like it was a big hit with your kids though! Mine don't like tomatoes so I would not put them in even though I like them!

Jessica said...

I am not sure why but chicken looks like crab or lobster in the pictures to me. I am mad about seafood, I guess. :) I love it! This pasta looks amazing! I can't wait to try it!

This looks so good. I love how you worked veggies into it as well. If your looking for low carb, you could even swap the noodles with zucchini noodles using a spiral slicer.

Kori Tomelden said...

That does sound incredibly appetizing. Though I think I would omit the corn and maybe try this with some spinach.
