lemon chicken pasta


Last week I decided to make pasta for dinner from ingredients we already had in our fridge. With a some leftover grilled chicken, a bag of green beans, and lemons, I whipped up this easy and fairly healthy pasta dish. Here's the ingredients I used:
1 chicken breast, cooked
 2 cloves of garlic, minced
 1/4 cup olive oil 
juice from 1 lemon
2 cups of green beans, cooked and cut 
crumbs from 1/2 a piece of wheat bread 
1/3 cup of shaved parmesan cheese 
salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste 
whole wheat spaghetti, cooked
I mixed the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic cloves, and spices in a small bowl. Then I  added the chicken and green beans to the cooked spaghetti. I coated the spaghetti, beans, and chicken with the olive oil mixture. Next, I added the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, so they stuck to the noodles. This easy recipe will definitely become a staple in our house.
