1 large frozen boneless skinless chicken breast
Salt&Pepper to taste
Vinagrette salad dressing
1/2 lemonRanch Dressing
1 box of Ziti noodles (as much as you want)
Olive Oil
Parmesean Cheese
Leftover asparagus or any other veggie you'd like. Such as broccoli, cauliflower or anything else that is firm.

In a non-stick skillet cover the bottom with olive oil.
Defrost and cut chicken into bitesized pieces.
Boil water for pasta noodles (on high).

Heat skillet. And then add in chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let it cook. Add lemon and then the vinagrette sauce. Add your vegetables. Drain and pour the pasta into skillet. Toss around, and cook well. Add some water occasionally to avoin the pan burning, and the ingredients getting burned and dry. Now you can pour the ranch dressing and parmesean. Cook through, and toss so that the dressing and parmesean are mixed through well. The cheese should be melted and well incorporated. Take off heat and pour into a large bowl. The pasta shouldn't be soupy. But shiny, all the ingredients should be stuck to the pasta, chicken and veggies. There should only be a small spoonful of liquid visible, however when served there may be more.

In this recipe, you have to eyeball all the ingredients and adjust to your needs. It's really fun, easy, and quick. And if you're only serving yourself, it can be adjusted to your needs, with an easy clean up. It's full in flavor too!

Serve in small portions with a salad, made of mainly romaine and parmesean cheese.

    Schatzli, you are stronger than I am! I am totally a carbo addict :-) I can eat pasta and rice at the same time. Grabe, noh?

    Pasta is Jade's favorite main dish to cook, it's nice and easy. I like it cause it's filling ;-)
