Baked Penne with Chicken, Broccoli and Smoke Mozzarella

I woke up this morning to a cool and dark morning. It is funny how Mother Nature eases you into each Season. I am grateful for that. If you have ever driven through Wyoming during a winter storm you will know why. I just love Fall, I just love it. It is slowly sneaking in, giving us little gentle reminders to get prepared. Amazing how are wonderful world works isn't it?

It was time for a good and easy pasta meal. I LOVE these ingredients and I would probably add a little more sauce and a little more cheese. Serve this is baguette bread with butter. Perfect. Pasta is always so good the next day for leftovers. My favorite thing to take to work the next day. It smells up the office and everyone wants to know what it is. 

I found this picture and recipe at Mel's Kitchen Cafe. She has some WONDERFUL recipes and is a great photographer of her food.

  1. I'm so sorry, but I can't find any other way to contact you other than to post a comment. I can't seem to locate your recipe for Oriental Chicken Salad (the one that you've had for 25 years and haven't found one better) that I found on pinterest. When I click on the picture, it takes me to your website, but it says the page I'm looking for does not exist. I would LOVE to try this salad. If you can, please email it to me at

    Thanks so much!! Cheryl :)


I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment, It gets lonely in here without them!
