modified version of Pasta with Peas

I enjoy the series called "Great Depression Cooking" on youtube.

This recipe is a modified version of a recipe from that series, called "Pasta with Peas." The original recipe is meatless, but I thought it would be great for leftover chicken.

In a cast iron dutch oven (3 or 4 quart will do), heat up some olive oil and add chopped potatoes, chopped onions, minced garlic. Cook until tender. Add onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper.

Add a can of undrained peas*, and 1 1/2 cups chicken broth or stock. Bring to a boil, then add 1 cup of elbow macaroni. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until pasta is cooked. Mix in your leftover chicken and top with parmesan cheese.

*If you stop at the peas, it makes a wonderful side dish (peas with onions and potatoes)!
