Lil Farmchick's Recipe

I had a few minutes so I thought I would share with you the recipe I told you about in my last post. Lil Farmchick found a recipe in one of her magazines that she just had to try. She had me pick up the items at the grocery store and then she made it all by herself! I didn't know what to do with myself while she was preparing the meal!


1 pound uncooked penne pasta
6 tbsp. olive oil
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 cup skim mozzarella cubes
3 cups bagged baby spinich

Cook pasta according to package directions. Ladle out 1 cup of the boiled water and set it aside, then strain pasta. In medium skillet, warm the oil. Add tomatoes and garlic and saute over medium heat until soft (about 15 minutes). Add the cheese, spinich and pasta water. Remove from heat. Toss with pasta, then cover with a lid until cheese melts!
Serve with a nice grilled juicy steak or chicken breast! ENJOY--It's yummy!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.....make sure you say hi so I know you were here to visit!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you lovely Moms!! :)

Sounds delicious! I don't care for cooked spinach (too slimy for me), but this I would definitely like!

I'm so glad you are posting again...I've missed you!

I'm so smiling that your little farm chick wants to follow in your footsteps and cook something yummy up too! Sounds perfect to go with our homegrown beef! That's what we sell at the Farmer's markets...our homegrown beef! (Thanks for your sweet comments on my post always bring a smile to my day!) Praying you have a great Mother's Day...filled with many, many Sweet blessings!

Another delicious-sounding and delicious-looking recipe! Good for the Lil Farmchick...learning to cook at an early age would have been a good idea for me. The first year Jack and I were married, I cooked...we each lost 10 pounds...not a good thing then. I haven't done much cooking since..haha.

Thanks Lil Farm Chick! It looks delicious. But there is no way my Captain will even attempt to eat it. I will have to save this one just for me.
Happy Mother's Day, Farm Chick!!
