Pasta Al’Zaccaria
Zachary’s Pasta
by James Belardo

It’s a challenge cooking for kids on a good day, we try to make the tastiest and most nourishing meals we can. While we don’t have our own children we are quite close to our niece and nephew. We love to have them for sleepovers and try to cook at least one homemade meal for each stay. They appreciate the home cooked meals and show a lot of enthusiasm by asking what we can make next. We enjoy the time we spend together preparing, cooking and ultimately eating our creations. This particular recipe is dedicated to our nephew Zachary, who loves broccoli, chicken and of course, pasta!

Ingredients
2 chicken breasts cut into 1.5-2 inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 cup Chicken stock (try our homemade version)olive oil
2-3 tbsp unsalted butter
Salt and Pepper – to taste
1/2 tbsp Lemon, juiced
1-2 sprigs Rosemary, cut
flour for dredging
Pecorino Romano cheese
Flat-leaf parley

Chicken Marinade
1 cup white wine (Pinot Grigio)
2 tbsp olive oil

Pasta
Penne

Directions
1. Marinate the chicken for about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade (save the liquid), let drain and coat with flour, salt, pepper and fresh cut rosemary.
