Life has been a little crazy busy lately and I’ve been completely relying on my favorite 30-minute meals. Easy dinners with simple (real) ingredients that I know my whole family will enjoy.

This Chicken Mozzarella Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes gives me that comfort food feeling I love, but with fresh summer ingredients like ripe cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. I like to add whatever whole wheat, bite-size pasta I have on hand.
