I made what I thought was a delicious meal last night. It was from the cookbook The Delicate Palate by Michelle Eppich Hood, subtitled For those with egg, grain, and dairy allergies and for others who prefer healthy, delicious food. Michelle calls the dish Chicken Pesto Pasta with Artichokes (although the "pasta" is really spaghetti squash.) As some of you know, I can no longer eat gluten. And what a difference this dietary change has made in my health!
So, I was excited by the title and subtitle of this book! Spaghetti squash with chicken, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and pesto. What's not to like?
I'm afraid there was someone who does not like mushrooms, someone who does not like artichokes, and two generally picky eaters. I'm talking about my children-- adult children, mind you.
Not to worry. I'm really going to enjoy this dish as a leftover. And my daughter and son-in-law will be around tomorrow. They like healthy, tasty food and I know they will love it.
I want to try more recipes in this book. Looks really good.
