Pasta Shells with Smoked Chicken & Artichoke Cream.
My in-laws took turns visiting my brother- and sister-in-law a couple weeks ago (she's on bed rest, poor girl), and while my MIL was away, we fed Matt's dad.
I'd found this recipe in (I think) March's Bon Appetit.
It's so easy; shells are mixed with smoked chicken (getting use of that stove top smoker I bought Matt centuries ago), halved cherry tomatoes, and a sauce of cream and pureed artichoke bottoms. I'm sure there were other things in it, but I honestly can't recall what.
It was a huge hit. For as quickly as it came together, this recipe will likely be trotted out as casual company food again.
Blog Party#20 is underway, and this month, we're taking on the Shower! Turn fabulous treats into bite-sized party food, and stock up on fruit juice, because March is all about food and drinks for the Bridal or Baby Shower.
All you have to do is make ****AT LEAST ONE appetizer AND cocktail**** (that's a minimum of one EACH); take some photos, and write about it. Get your entries to me no later
than Thursday, 15 March: either leave a link here in the comments, or send it to me at thehappysorceress at gmail dot com. I'll post the round-up on St. Patrick's day, 17 March. Hope you'll join us!
