Did you know that today is National Linguine Day?
I'm not sure who comes up with all these crazy special designations, but I figured it was a perfect day to share one of my favourite recipes with you.
I think research has become my favourite part of book writing. :)
Lisa made this dish with spaghetti noodles so I've modified it in honour of linguine. Hope you enjoy!
- bag frozen broccoli
- onion chopped
- red & yellow peppers chopped
- chopped garlic
- sliced mushrooms
- boneless chicken breast cut into thin strips
- package of linguine noodles
- jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- spices - oregano, basil, seasoned salt
Heat water for cooking noodles and cook to el dente.
Drain the oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes into frying pan (not the tomatoes) and heat pan on medium.
Chop onions and peppers, and sauté with a tsp of garlic, in the oil until onions begin to appear translucent.
Add sliced mushrooms and broccoli and chicken. Sprinkle on oregano, basil and seasoned salt. Stir with spatula as cooking.
Once broccoli is close to tender, add sun-dried tomatoes to heat through.
Pour mixture over cooked noodles and grate parmesan cheese and freshly ground pepper over top.
Trust me, it tastes waaay better then the frog legs Serena's Aunt Martha tries to feed her in my October release, Another Day, Another Dali.
When a valuable Salvador Dali painting belonging to her grandmother’s friend is mysteriously replaced by a forgery, FBI Special Agent Serena Jones is called in to investigate. Serena hopes finding the thief will also mean finally measuring up to Nana’s expectations. But when the evidence points to members of the owner’s own household, it becomes increasingly clear that Serena won’t be winning any popularity contests.
The Dali isn’t the only painting that’s fallen prey to the forgery-replacing thief, raising the specter of a sophisticated theft ring–one with links to dirty cops, an aspiring young artist, and the unsolved murder of Serena’s grandfather.
With plenty of edge-of-your-seat moments, Another Day, Another Dali gives the plucky Serena Jones–and readers–a new high-stakes case to crack.
