Paleo Chicken Satay Pasta

Y’all, I am dog-tired today! Why? Well, my lack of beauty sleep is thanks to… you guessed it, my dog (see what I did there???)!  The poor guy has a hot spot on his tail that is causing him some discomfort.  I tried my best to ease his pain (itch cream, cuddling, etc), but that didn’t seem to work too well.  As a reward result, he retreated under the bed directly underneath where I lay my head and proceeded to whine intermittently throughout the ENTIRE night.  In my “Why won’t you let me #$&*ing sleep?” haze, I had a full conversation with him pleading for him to either stop the whining or relocate to someplace where I couldn’t hear him.  Hey, I’m flexible!  Unfortunately, his English appears to be limited as he didn’t budge.  Here’s to hoping tonight will be more restful for all!

If you’re like me and want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible tonight, this recipe is perfect if you’ve already done a wee bit of prep.  I discovered Cappello’s Paleo Friendly pastas a while ago and am in love (note: I am NOT being endorsed to say that)!  They are my go-to whenever I don’t feel like putting a ton of effort into dinner but still want to feel like I did.  The fettuccine is ready in 90 seconds.  That’s it!  Throw in veggies, — really, this recipe works well for cleaning out the fridge days — leftover chicken, and sauce.  Boom, done!
