As my husband has learned over the years, what I say we are having for dinner is not always what we end up with. I always have a rough idea of what I am going to make, but most of the time it evolves as I actually begin to cook. Last night was a prime example of that. I set out to make pasta with chicken, lime and capers, but ended up making Margarita-Marguerita Pasta instead. At the dinner table I was listing the ingredients and the hubby asked if it had capers …….. to which I replied, “Not tonight. I changed it. Capers will be next time.” His thoughts? “Of course you did.”
I love limes. I love cilantro. I love chicken marinated in lime and cilantro. I love marguerita pizza from our local Italian restaurant. It has sun-dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and garlic. I love margaritas. I love limes, and tequila….. So, I just combined them all together and voila! Margarita-Marguerita pasta was born! It was a big hit and here’s what I did!
My version was quite lime-y but that’s how we roll at our house! This is one way to get my husband to eat pasta without complaining – NO RED SAUCE!
