Day 403 | Salsarita Pasta

Do you remember when Trader Joe's made real meals for their samples instead of just warming up one of their frozen products? I do. I miss those days.

This is one of the recipes I got during a shopping trip years ago. It's a goodie and so so simple. 

Salsarita Pasta
  • 1.3 lbs (approx) chicken, cut into small chunks 
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1 large jar of salsa (on the runnier side, I use Pace Picante)
  • Noodles of your choice (I use whole wheat penne)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Coat chicken with Italian seasoning. 
  • Sauté chicken with a little olive oil over medium heat until cooked through. 
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of boiling water. 
  • After straining the pasta, stir in the salsa. 
  • Add the cooked chicken to the pasta and stir. 
  • Let the pasta/chicken cool. Serve room temperature with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. 
It was a crowd pleaser at our house tonight: Robbe had three servings.
