Chicken Florentine Pasta | #SundaySupper #SauteExpress & Giveaway! (Now Closed)

LOL Saute Express

Have you seen the new Land O Lakes® Sauté Express® Sauté Starters in stores yet? Land O Lakes® has packed a ton of flavor into each little square helping to make weekday dinners simple. No more collecting 5 different spices, measuring, chopping, just toss a square in and let it sizzle then add your chicken, fish, or pork.

Each square contains butter, olive oil and a variety of herbs and spices and they come in four different flavors; garlic & herb (pictured above), Italian herb, savory butter & olive oil, and lemon pepper.

The Sauté Express® Sauté Starters make it easy to get dinner on the table in under 30 minutes. As part of my week of no shopping this past week I cooked up some grouper cheeks that I already had in the freezer. Dinner was quick, flavorful, and couldn’t have been easier. I’m already imagining all the different easy meals I can create.

Chicken Florentine Pasta --- Supper for a Steal

For #SundaySupper this week I wanted to do a healthy pasta dish. Lately we haven’t been eating very much pasta. I think I overdid it on the creamy, heavy pastas and needed a break. This was the perfect recipe to ease back into pasta dinners. This Chicken Florentine Pasta is full of great ingredients and every bite tastes so fresh.

And did I mention how quick it is. Start cooking the chicken and then start the pasta. By the time the pasta is done you can toss it all together and dinner is served.
