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!

Rigatoni Chicken Helper

This one pot helper turns a cup of leftover cooked chicken into an awesome pasta plate!

2 tsps olive oil
1 tsp butter
1 small onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tbsps tomato paste
4 cups chicken broth
1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dry oregano
14 oz (6 cups) rigatoni
1 cup cooked chopped chicken
1 cup shredded cheddar (I used jalapeƱo cheddar)

Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot. Add the onion and cook until lightly golden, then add the salt, pepper and garlic for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste, broth, canned tomatoes and oregano and bring to a boil. Add the rigatoni and make sure it is covered with liquid. Cover the pot and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the pasta is tender.

Remove from heat and add the chicken and cheese. Cover 2 minutes then stir and serve.

Makes 5-6 servings
