A mistake turned great!
OK, so I forgot to pick up frozen spinach BOTH times I was at the store this weekend and thus my intention of making my new Giada recipe, Chicken Saltimbocca, was thwarted once again – next week, I promise! What’s the phrase, “out of the ashes rises the Phoenix”? Yes, I just finished Harry Potter 7 so this phrase has been on my mind but alas, it holds true with tonight’s dinner. Since I had everything except the spinach to make the saltimbocca, I improvised a little…and was SO pleased with the result: chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto, basil leaves, and fontina (as if you can’t already tell from this blog, Kyle and I are BIG fans of fontina cheese) with a creamy tomato sauce (using some of the spaghetti sauce I made yesterday) on top and side of spaghetti (which orginally was supposed to be Giada’s basic risotto). HOLY MOLY was this good!!!
