I am adjusting to a whole new way of shopping and therefore, cooking. I am a very hands-on shopper. I like to smell, touch and squeeze. Virtual shopping sucks. I am trying to not waste a single thing if possible. Yesterday was 'clean out the fridge' day and make something with whatever needed to be used. I found a few zucchini that were waving goodbye but yet they inspired me. I've never made a tian at this time of year but I went for it
My daughter said that she liked this better than my regular tians. Or at least she thinks I should always add kale.
Here's the recipe:
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 diced shallot or small onion
- 1-2 Cups of diced cooked chicken
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 3 Cups chicken stock
- 1/2 Box angel hair pasta
- 1 Cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 Cup whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 Cups diced kale
- In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and stir for 1 minute. Season with some salt and pepper.
- Add the chicken stock, the kale and diced chicken.
- Turn the heat up to high and let it come to a boil.
- Add the pasta and cook for 5 minutes.
- Take the saucepan off the heat and add the Parmesan cheese and stir until completely melted.
- Add the milk.
- Let stand for 5 minutes to continue thickening. If it's too thick, add more milk.
