Do you know what is hard to do when you are pregnant? Menu planning.
Seriously… I sat down the other day to write some recipes, make a menu plan, and write out a grocery list. This wasn’t a month-long list or anything – just a week worth of food and groceries. Do you want to know how long it took me?
I started at about 9:30am. I got home from the grocery store that night at 6:30. And that’s pretty much all that I did that day. I did have to take time to feed the kids lunch, but really. All. Day. Long. And just to think – I get to do it again this week!!
What I need more of in my life for the next 3ish months are recipes like this one. Only a few ingredients. Only 30 minutes. A delicious and satisfying dinner.
I actually made this months ago, but am just now getting around to writing about it. And I don’t know what has taken me so long, because this dinner was so easy and such a family favorite that I know that it will be back on the menu in the future. Especially as we get closer to baby day. And in the months that follow. (I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to handle 3 kids, 3 and under – I’m in for a wild ride!!)
So take a hint from me and add this Salsa and Chicken Fettuccine to your next menu plan. You won’t regret it!
- ½ pound fettuccine
- ½ cup salsa
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 cup cooked, chopped chicken
- chopped fresh cilantro
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until al dente; drain and return to pot.
- In a small pot, combine the salsa, sour cream and parmesan. Cook over medium heat until hot. Pour the hot sauce over the cooked fettuccine and stir until coated. Add in the chicken and stir to combine. Serve topped with cilantro.
