This week for the thirty-sixth recipe I've made for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book I made Penne con Pollo e Zafferano (Penne with Chicken and a Saffron Cream Sauce) on page 117. Delicious!
The ingredient list: cream, saffron, parsley, chicken, salt, penne, garlic, butter, and freshly ground pepper. The recipe in the book calls for Fresh Tuna, but that's not happening here, so I switched it out for chicken, which was a great deal.
As always, this comes together very quickly and easily for a busy weeknight. The sauce is light, despite the cream and butter, as there is not a lot of either in the entire recipe. I served it with a nice tomato salad on the side. Definitely a repeat.
Margaret's recipe for the week is here. Yum!
If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
