Italian Green Bean Chicken Pasta

Do you have really bad days?  I don't know why I am even bothering to ask because of course we all have really bad days.  Well my yesterday was really bad.  I guess I was due.  

I don't have much to post so I will leave you with this pasta dish I made quite some time ago.  It has lots of fresh basil and reminded me of spring.  

Here is to better days.

  1. Oh God, sometimes I think I have more bad days than good ones, but hang in there! The pasta dish looks delicious and comforting!

  2. It is nice to pop in here and find a tasty one dish meal that uses green beans. My recipe collection for green beans is very slim. I would have never thought of using them with pasta, wish I had though. Tasty creation! Have a great weekend!

  3. Definitely have bad days. This meal would at least make the end brighter! :)

  4. This does sound like an ultra spring dish - nice work :D
