Life is speeding by and with the price of meat increasing my husband and I figured out a way to spend some quality time together by grilling out without shelling out. We purchased some chicken leg quarters, some fresh farmers market vegetables, fettucini, pre-made pesto and shredded parmesan, romano and asiago cheeses all for under $15. It did not take long to heat up the grill and listen to our chicken sizzle and pop. After cooking the pre-seasoned leg quarters for 10-15 min. on each side we grabbed our grilling basket and threw in some fresh asparagus, sliced mushrooms and purple onion, seasoned lightly with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.
Once the fettucini was done boiling I added in two table spoons of pesto topped with a few finger sprinkles of parmesan, ramano and asiago shredded cheeses. This grilled lunch did not take long as we soon found ourselves ready to devour our healthy yet inexpensive meal and enjoy some much needed one-on-one time together.
