Skillet Shellbows with Shallots, Tomatoes and Peas / Bev Cooks

Creamy Parmesan Chicken Meatballs with Egg Noodles

Creamy Parmesan Chicken Meatballs with Egg Noodles / Bev Cooks

Let’s make meatballs! But with chicken. And truck loads of fresh parmesan. And our blistered soul. I love this recipe so much because it’s nothing but comfort.

And it’s vegetarian! I’m sure you picked up on that. You’d never believe it if I told you, but I’m telling you anyway – my kids love mushrooms. Like, they LOVE mushrooms. I gotta be honest, I didn’t see that one coming. Aren’t mushrooms the gateway flavor to say, a 17 year old’s palate? Yes, […]
