We’ve reached the point of absolute end of the school year chaos.

Between end of year projects and exams and soccer and 7-on-7.

I’m done.

I’m ready to not have to worry about who needs a Benjamin Franklin costume and who needs a terrarium. I’m over stressing out about 2 soccer practices on the same night at the same time in 2 different cities.

I need a vacation.

I’m really relying heavily on no fuss 20 minute dinners like this Parmesan Pasta with Bacon and Peas.

Pasta with Broccoli Walnut Pesto – delicious meatless dinner recipe. Homemade broccoli pesto is ready in minutes! The broccoli lover in your life is going to love this one!

My kids are obsessed with broccoli.

Have we talked about that?

All 3 of them would happily eat an entire pan of roasted broccoli for dinner every night if I let them.

I literally can’t keep broccoli in the house. I buy bags and bags of the pre-cut kind and it seems to just disappear.

There’s absolutely nothing about broccoli that appeals to me unless it’s covered with mayo and tossed with dried cranberries so I don’t get it.

Okay, so, funny story.

Back in the summer, I did an Instagram post for this same pasta, my favorite pasta ever, Skinner® Texas Shape pasta and I have been obsessed with it ever since.

If I invite you over for spaghetti and meatballs, what I mean is Skinner Texas Shape pasta and meatballs. Baked ziti? Baked Skinner Texas Shape pasta. Macaroni and Cheese? Okay, you get it.

But yeah, I’d literally bought a bag of this pasta the day I got the cutest package from Skinner for this post (thanks for sponsoring!). I Instagram story’d it but I guess I didn’t screenshot it, which probably means you should follow me over there to keep up with all my Texas-shaped pasta dishes.

Can we talk about dinners during summer?

I have zero desire to cook really involved dinners right now.

This is how this pretty pasta came about.

Already cooked chicken sausage?

Yep! Sign me up!

Throw in some pasta, something green (because health), and lots of cheese.

And dinner’s done!

I purchased the Barilla® Gluten Free Penne and Aidells® Chicken & Apple Sausage at Target recently and used both to create this delicious recipe.

I’m absolutely obsessed with Aidells® products and the Chicken & Apple Sausage is one of my favorites! I love Aidells® because they are made with no nitrates and no added hormones. All their sausages are hand-crafted in small batches with hand-picked ingredients. They’re fully cooked and ready in just 8 – 10 minutes on a stove or grill on medium heat!

The Barilla® Gluten Free pasta is the number 1 gluten free pasta brand according to Nielson. They are certified gluten free and made with no GMO ingredients. They are made with a delicious blend of corn and rice and have that classic pasta taste and texture that you know and love!

I have tried a lot, a lot, a lot of gluten free pastas in my day and I have to say, this one is by far the best. If you’ve tried any, you probably know that they don’t usually hold their shape well. This one does.

I love it. So much.

This is a quick, easy, and delicious meal.

No fussy sauce here! Just reserved pasta water and goat cheese. Plus some lemon zest and juice! And if you aren’t a huge kale fan, feel free to use spinach or asparagus or whatever your green veggie of choice may be!

Whyyy? Why does the weather do this to me? Yesterday I laid in the sun while my kids played in the sprinkler after school and today? I’m cold.

COLD.

What is this?! Texas, get it together!

Anyway, the brief moments of hot weather have me really looking forward to summer! And swimming! And beaching! And most importantly, grilling!
