Your local fresh shopping list is bolded:
♦ In a large pot or wok, cook chopped Bacon on high (not crispy).
Remove bacon and drain grease so there’s about 2 T. left in the pot.
Add Chicken (cut into 1” cubes), cooking just til browned, and remove
it from the pot. ♦ Reduce heat to medium, and add bacon back to
pot along with Asparagus, cut into 1” pieces, and 1 chopped Onion.
Cook until onion is just translucent, then add the Kick & Creamy
packet, 16 oz. Spinach, 1/3 cup chopped Sun-dried Tomatoes & 6 c.
Milk, and bring to a boil. Stir periodically so the bottom doesn’t burn.
♦ Once milk is bubbling, add the chicken back in, along with 1 lb.
Pasta, and stir frequently until pasta reaches desired doneness
(approx. 10 mins). Gourmet Tip: You can substitute chicken broth
or stock for part or all of the milk. The point is to cook the starchy pasta
in something flavorful. Mix in 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) grated Parmesan
WINE: Syrah (red), or a full-bodied Chardonnay (white).
