If you’re looking for a satisfying, quick and relatively inexpensive meal that appeals to varying tastebuds, The Skinnytaste Cookbook has your bases covered with this one. In fact, Skinnytaste knocked it out of the park with this one!
Since this recipe was so easy, I don’t have a whole lot to say! All I can do is sing its praises.
Last Sunday, I mentioned how much I love thyme. Well, tonight it’s all about basil. This recipe called for a quarter of a cup of basil, but this is an herb that I like to use generously.
- We ate a late lunch today, so we ate the chicken parmesan without a side. I recommend serving it over a bed of whole grain pasta or veggie noodles made of zucchini and yellow squash sliced using a mandolin or with asparagus or broccoli rabe.
- If you’re like me and haven’t made sauce from scratch (until today), don’t let that deter you from trying this one. The sauce recipe was also very easy. Just be sure to watch for splatters while it’s simmering. Ouch! A couple other time-saving tips:
- Buy your onions pre-diced. Chopping onions makes my eyes sting pretty badly!
- Buy your garlic pre-minced and in a jar. I recommend the minced garlic in water versus in olive oil.
So far, I’m very impressed by The Skinnytaste Cookbook‘s Italian recipes, and I look forward to trying more!
