Jeannene loves to make pasta when it's her turn to cook. This usually manifests as some pasta shape with red sauce, which is not a bad thing at all. However, Monday night, she really knocked it out of the park with dinner. She's not usually a fan of anything tart or lemony, but she made chicken piccata---and made it very lemony---just because she knows I love it beyond reason. She added artichoke hearts to the classic caper and lemon sauce, a perfect complement to the flavors.
Alongside the chicken, she served these delicious pear and blue cheese pasta "purses" she found in the frozen section at our local Kroger. These were paired with a 5-cheese sauce, a nice creamy counterpoint to the tang of the piccata. We also had mixed veggies and a terrific multigrain seed baguette, the heat and serve sort.
