For dinner last evening, I sautéed chicken tenderloin and breast strips, sliced white onion, minced garlic, sliced white mushrooms, sliced red bell pepper, sliced celery, sliced zucchini, and whole sugar snap peas, in extra-virgin olive oil. I seasoned this with Italian seasoning, ground black pepper, sea salt, celery salt, and Cajun seasoning. When this was done, Laura stirred in cooked Barilla penne. It was delightful. At the table, we added crushed red peppers and grated Parmesan cheese.
