I’m sure if you’re a loyal reader of this site, you’ve figured out by now that I’m never going to start cooking (afterall, I’ve been attempting to cook since my New Year’s resolution in January)
Well reader, you are wrong! (partially) :))
For this first ever (and hopefully not last) installment of Finance Foodie Cooks At Home, I’m going to be making Basil Parmesan Chicken with grilled white meat chicken, broccoli florets and tomatoes with cavatappi pasta tossed in a flavorful creamy basil parmesan sauce. MMMMMM!! Doesn’t that sound good? And what if I told you it takes less than 20 minutes to whip this up?
Well you’re in luck since I just discovered that Romano’s Macaroni Grill has come out with a new line of frozen entrees that are perfect for quickly and conveniently recreating premium quality meals right in your own kitchen. Ok, so I’m not cooking from scratch –sorry, but I work 80 hours a week – BUT I am using my stove (baby steps)!
To make this meal, pour the contents of the bag and ¼ cup milk (I used soy milk since I didn’t have regular milk in my fridge) into a 10 inch non stick skillet.
The cover and let it simmer for ~20 minutes.
The volia! A restaurant quality meal that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home (and PJs) at a fraction of the cost!
***Giveaway***Romano's and financefoodie.com is giving one a chance to cook their own dinner for two with a Romano's prize pack consisting of: a package of their new frozen entree, a serving bowl, and tongs!
