Quick Fix ~ A Commercial Inspired Dinner ~

Their version is shrimp and spinach .
I thought I would share this " quick fix " dinner inspired by a knorr pasta sides commercial . I am sure you have all seen it . The Chef comes in mixing some unexpected what not with a simple packet of pasta mix .
Well , their clever marketing got me and when I saw the Knorr Alfredo packet on sale for a dollar at the grocery I thought I'd give it a try . My version is a Chicken Broccoli Alfredo and it would serve two people .

1 packet of Knorr Pasta Side Alfredo Flavor (cook per labels instructions) (milk and butter required) cooks in 7-8 minutes once boiling
1-2 baked chicken breast depending on size ( place on cookie sheet lined w foil , drizzle with olive oil , salt , pepper , bake on 350 for 20 -25 minutes , flipping half way through )
1/2 bag of Green Giant Steamed Broccoli ( you could probably use the entire bag, but for me that was going to be too much broccoli compared to pasta ratio ) cooks in 7 minutes in the microwave

Cook everything , mix together and boom ! In less than thirty minutes you have a yummy , quick , inexpensive meal . I would recommend keeping watch over the pasta as it cooks . I tend to walk away and do other things , but this is one in my opinion you need to watch .

I hope this helps you out with one of your weekly meals and your budget . What are you cooking up this week ? Please feel free to share in the comment section of the blog !!! We are all in this together . We might as well share survival tips .
