It’s Monday folks.
For me, Monday requires a healthy dinner to kick start the week but I’m typically still yearning for the weekend past and so although healthy, it must hold lots of appeal. (Else wise my stomach may lead me astray)
“Appeal” to me today presented itself in the form of “comfort” and what offers more comfort than pasta?
I rustled up a Cannelloni dish from a supremely old weight watchers book. Typically I’d consider it a little boring but it was hearty, with a deep tomato sauce and best of all, it was healthy. I am going to bed satisfied and carbed up for the mornings gym session!
After a 5.45 am start, a 90 minute gym session, a long day in the office and a pitch black dog walk…tonight my body craved carbs!
I whipped up this simple yet tasty tomato and chicken pasta (it would have been 100% healthy too if not for the cheeky addition of creme fraiche)
- Boil some Whole wheat pasta
- Whilst it boiling fry Shallots and Courgette in Olive oil
- Add a tin of chopped Tomatoes
- Stir in cooked chicken breast pieces and the Creme Fraiche
- Mix into the pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan to taste.
Easy peasy and done in under 20 minutes. It doesn’t lack on flavor either however if I was dining alone I would have been tempted to slip in a full chili!!
