I always love being invited over for dinner- someone else to do the cooking. I love looking forward to the unknown as to what is going to be served. Isn’t it like, the best ever?
But I will sometimes cheat and ask ‘What’s for Dinner?’ ahead of time. Sometimes I’m lucky and get the dish on the Supper Club menu- much to my hearts satisfaction- thanks girls!
Anyway- a few weeks back my Fireman and I spent the evening with some close friends and were spoiled with a delicious heart healthy meal. After just one bite I was pulling out a note pad and pen from my bag to take down the recipe.
Two words: quick & simple. Literally a 5-ingredient meal.. ok, well if you count cooking spray, then it’s a 6-ingredient meal.
Simple combo of prepared basil pesto and reduced fat EVOO mayo..
..paired with a mixture of Italian-style bread crumbs and sharp Parmesan cheese.
Broil for 12 minutes, and done!
Seriously- You’re done. How quick and simple was that?
I added a slightly nutty flavor with some toasted sesame seeds mixed in with my parma-bread crumbs. Just an extra step- not desperately needed.
Since having it at our friend’s house for dinner that night we’ve had it at home.. let’s see.. 3 times now.
Repeat meals are few and far in between. Unless my Fireman requests it we typically will have something different on most nights.
This one is really great- kind of like Pesto Chicken.
Yep- so very yum.
