Tasty Tuesday

I wish I could give you all some grand, spectacular recipe to drool over today but... I'm recovering from a very busy holiday weekend, and frankly just too tired to have planned anything in advance. Oh yeah, and I have to go back to work today.

So...I'm doing a very simple dinner in the crockpot today:

Lazy Workday Pasta Dinner

3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
Large jar (2lb 13oz) of Chunky Ragu tomato, garlic & onion pasta sauce

Place chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray first)
Pour whole jar of Ragu over chicken.
Cover & cook on low all day.

To get ready to serve:
Cook one box of whole wheat pasta of your choice (I used spirals)
Drain.

Shred chicken & mix in with sauce.
Mix pasta with chicken/sauce mixture.
Top with shredded cheese (I used cheddar).
Replace cover and let cheese melt.

Told you - very lazy!

When I get home, I'll shred the chicken and mix it in well with the sauce for pasta topping.


UPDATE: This turned out to be FABULOUS!!! Seriously, it was one of the best meals I've "cooked" in a long time. The family loved it!
