I am very thankful for Recipes. Chris is a wonderful cook. He can just make up something and it is wonderful. I, on the other hand, must have a detailed recipe for anything to work out correctly. Chris and I have found that we are so busy trying to eat as fast a possible so that we can play with Hannah in the evenings that we had stopped really eating. Ramen Noodles, sandwiches, and cereal were a regular thing for us. Anyway, we have a notebook now of great FAST recipes that we have found in magazines that we like or really want to try. I have a favorite. It is so good and easy

2 cups uncooked rotini pasta, 1 Tbsp oil, 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size chunks, 2 cups chopped red peppers (Chris and I have used green ones too), 1/4 cup Zesty Italian Dressing, 1Tbsp chili powder, 1/2 cup salsa, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Cook pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on med-high heat.
Add chicken.
Cook and stir for 6 minutes.
Add peppers, dressing, and chili powder.
Cook 3 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru.
Stir frequently.
Stir in salsa and sour cream.
Toss pasta with chicken mixture.
Sprinkle with cheese.

Yummmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! You will love it!
