Kindergarten bento – Macaroni with broccoli & chicken (8/Mar/17)

Menu: Macaroni with broccoli & chicken, Plain omelet, Cherry tomato, Boiled broad beans

Strawberries & banana for dessert

Cooking pasta is actually quicker than preparing Japanese style bento. 

While boiling the macaroni, in a cooking pan with extra virgin olive oil, I cooked diced chicken, broccoli (steamed ones, leftover from the previous day) and chopped celery. After a while I added some boiling pasta water to cook further without drying the ingredients. Just a minute before the pasta is ready, added salt and pepper to taste, poured the cooked pasta into the pan and tossed them all together. At the end, sprinkled grated parmiggiano for extra flavour. All of these steps took only 15 minutes. 

Viva pasta! Buonappetito!
