Whenever I travel out of town, I like to stock the fridge with plenty of food and ready-to-eat meals that my husband can easily reheat for the boys.

Liz on the Chickpea FarmLast week I had the opportunity to travel to Virginia to visit one of Sabra’s chick pea farms. As someone who has been eating and making hummus her entire life, this was quite the exciting experience!!

Since I didn’t want to boys to survive on Cheez-Its and Oreos, I decided to whip up this fast and easy Chicken Broccoli Pasta with Lemon Butter Sauce. A little white wine is used to deglaze the pan after browning the chicken but you’re welcome to use chicken broth to avoid the alcohol.
