    Creamy Lemon and Basil Pasta with Broccoli and Peas

    Tonight was 2 friends over to clean out the fridge and freezer. They had chicken, some pork stew, salad, bread, tomatoes, etc.

    My plate, I decided on my lemon pasta I made a couple of weeks ago. It was a simple mix of pasta; tossed with, heavy cream reduced, white wine, smoked chicken, peas, shallots, fresh herbs, and a little parm. I froze the leftovers.

    Well, tonight, since there was hardly any chicken left ... I added broccoli florettes (yes, frozen), and made it more of a veggie dish. I'm sure there was a few chicken pieces in there; so, I added some chicken broth and lemon juice, to thin it out; and garnished with a little parm and fresh herbs. It was very light, which was nice. A side of my yellow tomatoes from the garden with a balsamic vinaigrette. Plenty for me.

    Trust me ... it tasted way better than it looked.

    I gave the guys a small container of that, along with some stew; and, I even have a little pasta for lunch tomorrow if I want.

    Looks just fine to me! Especially the last photo!

    You're really are lucky with your yellow tomatoes -- they've been bearing for a long time now, haven't they?

    I've got close to 75, just from 1 plant. I only have a couple left on the plant. Same with my cherry. July 1 is usually the cut off. Just too hot, and the tomatoes are usually done. Have to wait until Sept for the next planting.

    And thx, it was a nice way to use up the pasta, and have a nice light dinner

    Shhhh don’t tell you cleaned the fridge out as that dinner looks as fresh and yummy as if you just came from the farmers market.

    Frozen pasta, frozen broccoli, fresh lemon.
    And tomatoes.
    Turned out tasty for leftovers; and thank you.

    I just hate to toss stuff. And, when I can turn pasta into something good and healthy, why not.
    Yes, I would of liked fresh broccoli; but, use what you have.

    I really am not one who complains about this and this, and spending too much; but Mom and Grandma always taught me ... there is always a meal waiting to be made. Even when I was little ... a little chicken or ham was made into a sandwich, or a stuffed meat pie. Nothing got wasted. I guess I inherited that gene. I really try to use and save everything

    But thank you again.
    Not the best pics, but it was dark and the best I could do.
