I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Peppery Chicken and Pasta

Black pepper, red pepper flakes and sweet red pepper take center stage in this creamy chicken and pasta dish.

2 tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp butter
2 cups cooked chicken, sliced or chopped
2 cups penne pasta
1 small onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
5 or 6 mushrooms, sliced
6 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper (more if you really like pepper)
1/2 - 1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsps oregano
1 cup 35% cream
1 cup chicken broth
2 tbsps pumpkin purée (optional)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet and add the onion, mushrooms and red pepper. Sauté 2 or 3 minutes, then add the garlic for 1 minute. Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, cream, broth and pumpkin (if using).

Then add the chicken and parmesan. Heat through simmering for about 10 minutes while the pasta cooks.

Add the cooked penne to the sauce, tossing to coat.

And ready in under 30 minutes!
