Whenever I find myself disgruntled and ask myself what I can do to make myself feel less cremudginy, the answer is often (always) the same: carbs.

Specifically of the fried rice varietal.

Don’t fret…you can still enjoy a pile of fried rice on the days you don’t feel like throwing yourself on the ground like a rag doll and tantruming it out. The true fact is, fried rice simply makes everything better.

And that is a fact of life upon which you can quote me 😉

Chicken Sausage Pesto Pasta

Chicken sausage pesto pasta makes for a filling, delightfully flavorful and fresh meal. Make it ahead of time for meal prep, or whip it up for the whole family!

What’s your pasta theory?

Are you into red sauce? Creamy sauce? Pesto? A drizzle of olive oil or melted butter? Something I’ve never even heard of?

Perhaps you have a noodle preference, meat (or lack thereof) specifications, and/or vegetable requirements (or lack thereof)?

While I’ve been eating gluten-free for a decade, I still occasionally find myself craving a big bowl of pasta. Truth be told, I can get down for just about any iteration of pasta, regardless of the sauce, and/or meat and vegetable inclusions.

I do find I absolutely ADORE pasta with sausage and pesto sauce. Which is exactly what we’re doing for today’s carb fest! I use a store-bought chicken sausage and homemade pesto sauce, but you can go about this however you’d like.

One-Skillet Chicken Green Curry with Rice

One-Skillet Chicken Green Curry with Rice is a quick and easy meal that incorporates chicken curry with vegetables and rice all in one pot! This easy meal is comfort food at its finest.

 

Lover of curry and looking for the easiest approach of all time to make it yourself at home? I’ve gotchu.

If you made my One-Skillet Ground Turkey Thai Curry with Rice a few months ago, you’re already familiar with the concept behind this recipe.

It’s simple, really. You use one skillet to make the curry and cook the rice into the curry so that it soaks up the coconut milk sauce and becomes ultra delicious. In this sense, you aren’t steaming rice separately from the curry, which makes the meal prep just a little bit quicker and easier. Style points!

This Thai green curry includes vegetables such as carrots, bell pepper, zucchini and broccoli, along with chicken thighs, all stewed in a deliciously creamy green curry coconut milk sauce. There’s plenty of room for adaptation here.
