The meals that really stick in my memory from my childhood are the ones that we enjoyed on Sunday.  Sunday dinners were always filled with family, fun, lots of love and the best food we ate all week.

Memories of my mom and dad in the kitchen wash over me as I remember those days.  My daddy belting out a heartfelt 50’s tune to my mom in the kitchen still leaves me swirling.

Singing, dancing, loving, that is our family way…  The kitchen has always been a place of incredible love, fabulous food and the best memories.  As I carry the tradition on with my little girl, the kitchen continues to be the source of incredible love, great entertainment with dancing, singing and best food I can prepare for my family.

Today’s life being so much more busy that the days I remember, a quick and easy dinner is certainly on the agenda.  Sundays spent in the kitchen may be few and far between, but a fabulous family dinner any night truly makes me grin.

Even with such a busy week, we refuse to sacrifice flavor or quality and are so excited to choose KRAFT’s Parmesan Cheese and Hunt’s Tomato Sauce to help our meals come together quickly.

Chicken Parmesan with Linguine & Broccoli is made extra special with KRAFT Reduced Fat Parmesan Style Grated Topping and Hunt’s Tomato Sauce. Chicken simmered in a scrumptious tomato sauce and topped with oodles of cheese, served over a bed of linguine and broccoli…  With a little more cheese…  WOW!  With recipes like this you will never have to wait for Sunday again!

Dinner's Ready!

  2. Amazing! I may just have to make this for dinner tonight!

  3. Yum! What a great idea for a quick mid-week meal :)

  4. Just made this last night but with broccolini. Yummy!

  5. Made this it is very good. Can't stop eating it

  6. Perfect timing.....yum!

  7. why not brown the chicken? cooking for a little longer or at a higher temp would brown the chicken and create a nice golden brown crust. doing that and then putting the sauce on would make for a much better dish, chicken parm is all about the crust!

  8. Ty, You are so right. Browning would bring out the flavor of the chicken. It's not always only about the cheese!!!

  9. Ty is absolutely right!!! Are you eating chicken or cheese??? And yes, there can be too much cheese in a recipe!!

  10. Looks great I will be trying this one next week. !!
    Thanks for the recipes !!

  11. I can't wait to make this for fussy

  12. Looks delish! Would not have thought to add broccoli.... great idea.
