Chicken parm with pasta and zucchini. 9/17/21

Chicken parmesan with whole grain spaghetti and tomato sauce plus zucchini, onions, garlic, and red bell,pepper

Excellent dinner tonight! John took one chicken breast and cut it into four pieces which he pounded out, seasoned, and cooked in a skillet with a spray of olive oil. I had made a tomato sauce with fresh and dried oregano, red onion, and garlic to go with it. I used the stick blender to get a smooth consistency. I also sautéed some batons of zucchini and yellow squash along with onion, garlic, red bell pepper, and mushrooms. When the chicken was done John put an ultra thin piece of cheese on top and I ladled on some tomato sauce and doled out the pasta and vegetables. A shower of parmesan finished our plates.

Each of us ended up having half a chicken breast and 2 oz. of pasta along with the vegetables. I was afraid that the portion size would seem woefully weensy but it actually seemed like quite a bit of food. I am hoping that this revelation shows nutritional growth on my part!
