I am so ready for the Thanksgiving Holidays! We get the whole week off for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait! There’s so much to get caught up on, plus I want to go work at the Food Pantry that Tuesday to help give out Thanksgiving dinners to needy families.
This week is going to be another week of easy menus. I enjoy cooking, but after a day at work and then tutoring and blogging after work, I don’t have the energy most days to cook anything very extensive!

Here’s our tentative menu for the week:

Monday: Rotisserie Chicken, baked potato, and salad (a super easy meal for a Monday)

Tuesday: Use left-over chicken for the recipe below.  This is a revised recipe:


Zucchini, Spinach & Chicken Pasta


  • 2 cups cooked Barilla Plus Rotini Pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 zucchini, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen, chopped spinach
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast OR canned chicken breast
  • 1 jar pasta sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Cook pasta according to directions.  Saute onion in olive oil in sauce pan for a couple of minutes.  Add frozen spinach to onions and then place zucchini on top.  Cook until barely tender.  Mix pasta, onion, spinach, chicken, pasta sauce, salt & pepper in casserole dish.  Top with cheese.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.


Wednesday: Left-overs from Tuesday

Thursday: Chef Salad

Friday: Homemade Pizza

I have a bunch of zucchini and was just trying to figure out what to do with it! Can you freeze this dish?

I love this type of casserole: tasty and is enough for an entire family. I sometimes do almost the same thing (without spinach) by using instead of pasta potatoes.
