What's For Supper Ya'll? Let Them Eat Cake!

I found a real "goodie" on this website today and absolutely could not resist writing about it (even though today is our "What's For Supper Ya'll?" featured piece!) So, I thought "Let them eat cake!"

There's swimming pools and sandcastles and firetrucks, and the list goes on an on! Family Fun is a website I found some time ago that has all kinds of wonderful food ideas for families. These ideas, however, really take the cake! They are currently showcasing a "Best-Ever Birthday Cakes" article that shows a wonderful inventory of cake ideas! The sleepover cake is one of my favorites: One of the best things about this article is it not only gives you ideas with the pictures, it gives your recipes and instructions for making them! Check this site out at FamilyFun and have a blast!

Easy Chicken Pasta

Easy Chicken Pasta

What's For Supper Ya'll?

White Beans, Pasta and Chicken
8 ounces dried cavatappi, fusilli, rotini, ditaloni, or other short pasta tubes
1 15- to 19-ounce can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
12 ounces cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup snipped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley sprigs (optional - I usually skip it)
Olive oil (optional - but I recommend at least a little for moisture)
1. In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and set aside.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine 3/4 cup of the beans and the chicken broth. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Place bean puree in pan used for cooking the pasta; bring to boiling. Return pasta to pan.
3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon hot olive oil for 1 minute. Add tomatoes; cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining beans, shredded chicken, snipped parsley, pepper and salt. Heat through.
4. Add the tomato mixture to hot pasta; toss to cost. Top with parsley sprigs and additional olive oil. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
