The amazing recipe I made tonight!

I usually shop for groceries once a month, so by the end of the month I am just trying to clear out my pantry. Often my boyfriend starts to worry that we're running out of food! Just as he did tonight. So I made it my personal mission to prove to him that I can make a meal out of pretty much anything! Here is the recipe I came up with for tonight.... 

Chicken and Penne with Tomato Sauce
This was one of the most amazing dishes I've made in a long time! The chicken was so incredibly juicy and tender. And the sauce had an amazing flavor! My family ate every bite!

½ T Extra virgin olive oil

2 T Garlic powder


4 Chicken breasts

2 T extra virgin olive oil

1 t. crushed red pepper flakes
