Spaghetti in Garlic Gravy with Herbs and Lemon Marinated Chicken and Cherry Tomatoes
Happy Mother's Day. . I pray your day was extra special.
Mother's Day is a great day to try a new recipe on the family. We had a rather large lunch after church today so we didn't want anything too heavy for dinner . . our bellies were still overly full.
This was a recipe I happen to stumble across on pinterest one evening. We are big Italian food fans - have I mentioned that before? I think spaghetti is a basic weekly occurrence in our home; need I mention the olive garden salad dressing.
I didn't use the lemon-marinated chicken in the recipe this time. I wanted something meatless since we had over indulged at the Chinese restaurant during lunch. All I can say is that the spaghetti with garlic gravy was so heavenly; little George had three platefuls. Even my picky eaters didn't pick out the tomatoes for once. The recipe really didn't need the chicken, but I will try it another day with the chicken because the marinade sounds absolutely wonderful. I will anxiously look forward to trying some more of Jeannie Maristela's great recipes.
How was your Mother's Day and what special things did you do with your family?
