One Pot Pasta and Dessert + Shirley J Giveaway

Anyone who knows me knows that I love cooking! I love coming up with new recipes and I love products that help make things easier in the kitchen. These recipes are yummy and so easy to make with the help of a couple Shirley J products! 
This one pan pasta is so delicious! To make this, I used fresh veggies from my garden and the Shirley J Cream Soup and Sauce Mix. You can use any meat you want. I used one chicken breast cut into cubes and cooked in a large pan. If you want to save even more time, you can use the rotisserie chicken. Once your chicken is done, add your favorite veggies. I used summer squash and zucchini, bell peppers and spinach. Add half a bag of Rigatoni Pasta and 2 cups water. Cover and simmer until pasta and vegetables are tender. Whisk together 1 cup of Shirley J Cream Soup and Sauce Mix and 2 more cups of water. Pour into the pasta pan. Add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese. Simmer until sauce thickens. Serve with biscuits or garlic bread. So easy right?! My family loved this for dinner! And I loved how quick dinner came together and that I didn't have to wash a ton of pots and pans! 
We also love delicious desserts in my house, and I love desserts that are easy to make. Shirley J's Mugging Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cake mix is so easy my kids even helped make their own dessert last night! In a microwave safe 16 oz cup, you mix 2/3 cup of the Shirley J cake powder and 6 TBSP of water. Microwave for 80 seconds! Remove cup from microwave and top with your favorite chocolate chips. They will melt and become like frosting! We topped ours with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Enjoy the brownie cake while it's still warm. It's so moist and SO good! My family is obsessed! I love that you don't have to dirty a bunch of dishes to make this brownie cake! Plus the one cup serving is perfect for a single serving when you need a quick chocolate treat! I also love how the Shirley J mixes are tree nut free, and they also come in Gluten Free options!
