Pasta Primavera with Chicken

This pasta dish did a fast disappearing act after it was served and to tell you the truth so did the second servings. I may just be the deliciously creamy cheesy sauce, everyone found irresistible. They all said it was delicious, they loved every bite and wanted more.

Simple easy weeknight meal, perfect for Back to School time.

I can’t believe it’s Back to School time already!

But I sure am glad I have another easy meal to get on the table fast that everyone enjoys, because once school starts things get awful hectic! Often I feel like a chicken with it’s head cut off, running around practically in circles. The car doesn’t stay in the garage for more than a few minutes and I’m off again. Oh how I already miss the more relaxed days of summer!

Summer is too short.

I’m missing it already and my kids are only back in school one day.

Well, one kid is. The other has me busy waiting on him hand and foot at the moment. He broke his ankle…yep….the day before school started…..#nofun!
