Bacon Wrapped Chicken & Italian Summer Pasta Salad

I came home from work last night to Nate already in the kitchen part way thru making stuffed chicken breast!

He caramelized onions and stuffed them in flattened chicken breasts along with fresh basil leaves, mozzarella & Pecarino Romano, then rolled them up and wrapped them in bacon to put on the grill.

What could I make to go with that? A light Italian Summer Pasta Salad!

I boiled a pound of bow tie pasta and threw in 2 cups of broccoli the last minute. Drained and rinsed in cool water. Added 2 chopped cloves of garlic, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, 2 handfuls chopped fresh spinach, about 10 leaves chipped basil and a can of kidney beans. I topped it off with some shaved Pecarino Romano cheese, yum!

Nate and the boys loved the chicken, and ate it ALL for dinner. The past was great as well, fresh and light.
Full recipe to come later.
