I think it would be safe to say that my photography skills and cooking skills have increased since the last time i posted this meal

 yeah, i think i would rather eat the one on top. 

just evidence that if you work at something long enough you get better! 

(it probably also has a little bit to do with the purchase of a new camera as well... i can't accredit it all to my "hard work") just kidding. but it is fun to see improvement.

This is still one of my favorites and so i thought i would share it again. This time I made the chicken with some yummy really easy pasta. 

I cooked about 4 servings of pasta according to the package instructions. Meanwhile, i caramelized an onion, and added about a half a bottle of pasta sauce. Once the noodles were finished cooking and drained i added them to the sauce and onion along with a hand full of grated mozzarella cheese. I warmed this all through on medium heat (about 1 minute, just until the cheese melts). 

Serve with delicious chicken and chopped spinach on top (mostly just for color). 

Season the pasta to taste, i think i salted my onion, but other than that it was pretty spot on just by itself and with the saltiness of the chicken they lend themselves really well to one another.
