I wanted to start my semester off with a bang, so I chose a very simple and affordable (but incredibly delicious) recipe found at Recipe Zaar.
I revamped the recipe slightly, which you’ll see how below.
1 lb uncooked bow tie pasta (I used Ziti)
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (I only used 3/4 a pound)

I found this recipe called Belly Buster at RecipeZaar. The small amount of ingredients and number of servings (4-6) drew me in.
