Casarecce Limone

DSC01053
Just had an inspiration, one day. I called it Casarecce Limone because its Casarecce duhh haha. And also because I used lemon juice to tart up the chicken and mix. Yumm. (Limone is Italian for Lemon).
This recipe reminds me of the Tomato Basil recipe except there are more and further steps…

7. Then rub down half of the béchamel sauce on the chicken. Put the chicken in the oven and broil on the highest (about 400-500) for 15-20 minutes or until the thickest part of the chicken is 165F.

8. While the chicken is in the oven, the Pasta should be done by now, drain it and mix with a tsp of olive oil to keep it from sticking together.

13. Chicken should be done by now. Add the Chicken to the pot of pasta and tomatoes top it off with the béchamel sauce (no need to mix: it should trickle down on the food-if sauce is too thick add a little water or milk) and then cheese then with some Parsley flakes.
