Happy Mother's Day. . .and another great recipe

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?
