I just can’t seem to make this picture delicious-looking enough to get the wondrousness of it across.
And, yes, this is “leftovers”! I had made Chicken Cacciatore with Linguini and steamed kale the other night, and there was some left, along with quite a lot of chicken breast meat. So I added some more sauce and cut up the leftover kale and stirred that in. What a delight!
I was out of Mozzarella cheese (Roots through freezer . . . how did THAT happen? ), so substituted freshly-shredded Provolone as a topping. Now THAT is a keeper! The blending of these flavors . . . oh, my!
While squeezing fresh lemon onto the asparagus, we decided to put it on the cacciatore, too. Brilliant! I’m sure this added to the flavor of everything together. As you can probably tell, this was an experience and a half! ;-> Next time I am going to use my microplane to shred a bit of the lemon peel onto the dish just before serving.
BONUS: There is about half a cup left for my lunch today, which I will stretch out with additional linguini, asparagus, and green beans! But that will be much later.
Right now I am winding up to make blueberry pecan pancakes, with poached eggs, ham, and grilled pineapple for brunch today.
