Fun on Fridays and Early Menu Plan Monday...or late depending on how you look at it :)

I thought I would post a video of one of our favorite things to do as a around and listen to great music. We probably dance around before bed 3-4 nights a week... care to try it? I bet you'll like it :)..try to ignore me bossing everyone around...I know, I'm a control freak but I'm working on it... but the dancing really is fun, freeing almost!

2 T butter
4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 oz baby spinach leaves
2 T. Dried Basil Leaves or 1/3 c. Fresh Basil Leaves chopped
4 Roma Tomatoes
2 T Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste

1. Heat Olive Oil in Large Pan on Med-High. Cut up chicken into slices and place in hot pan. Cook for about 8 minutes and add basil and tomatoes. Cook for another 3 min or until flavors are blended.

2. In another saucepan, break pasta in half and add water, tomato, pesto, capers and butter. Cover and bring to boil on med-high head stirring often. When water boils, reduce heat to med and simmer 6-9 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.

3. Stir in arugula and cook 1-2 more minutes until leaves are wilted. arrange pasta on plates and place slices of chicken on top. Sprinkle with parmesean if you like. Enjoy!
That's about it!! I am going to post this on Monday to the Orgjunkie's Menu Plan Monday!! Enjoy!
