Dreamfields October #HealthyPastaMonth Receipe and Giveaway!

October is National Pasta Month so I'm super-excited to have been
selected by Dreamfields to promote their #HealthyPastaMonth campaign
and to be able to share with you my recipe for my favorite Olive Garden dish...
Chicken Scampi, featuring Dreamfields' Angel Hair Pasta! Since I
began eating better a year and a half ago, I refuse to eat food
prepared by anyone else but me! And, since I also refuse to give up
the dishes I love, I am perfectly happy to create them on my own!
As you might know, I was introduced to Dreamfields at my very
first MIXED conference and since then, it is my go-to pasta!
Why? Because Dreamfields is made right here in the United States and it
has a great texture and phenomenal taste not often found in other pasta
brands. Plus, with seven grams of protein and five grams of fiber in
every serving, Dreamfields is simply better for me and my family!
So let's get started on this chicken scampi recipe, shall
we? Yes, I know... My sad little garden is on its way
to hibernation, which doesn't make me happy either!
Nevertheless, nothing from our garden goes to waste so I am going
to add this pepper to some I just bought and make it work for us!
Blistering peppers is an easy and quick way to
deepen their flavor. So please don't skip this step!
After peppers are nice and charred, wipe away charred
skin with a dry paper towel - Then, slice peppers into strips...
Now, set them aside and slice one medium red onion into rings. Sauté
onion in olive oil and when rings are soft, add them to your sliced peppers...
Like this! Now, in the same skillet, add a bit more oil, reheat over medium
heat, add chicken and sliced garlic... Gosh! I wish you could smell this!
It smells so good! And, the best part is knowing exactly
who touched my food and how it was prepared!
When chicken is browned on both sides and cooked
through, move it to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm...
Now, to make the scampi sauce. Add some butter
to the pan where you just cooked the chicken...
More garlic. Because more garlic is better!
And then add a splash or three of heavy cream! As you can
see, I watered mine down a bit to save calories for dessert!
Whisk the mixture together just until it bubbles;
then, add chicken, peppers and onion slices!
Cook one package of Dreamfields pasta according to the instructions
on the box. Drain, reserving one cup of pasta water to add back into the
bowl with a pat of butter to keep your pasta loose. Then, salt and pepper!
Nothing adds sunshine to a gloomy, almost-November day like a
beautiful bowl of Dreamfields pasta... So I hope you have some ready for
your family this weekend, after the kids have finished trick-or-treating!
Because this delicious pasta beats even the best Halloween candy-binge!
