Easy One Pot Mediterranean Chicken Pasta with Smart & Final

This past weekend, my family went to the Arizona Science Museum courtesy of Blended Conference. We had such a great time that we’re looking into getting a family pass for a year!
There was so much to see, and we checked out many of the exhibits on all 3 floors, but towards the end, Abby was getting kind of cranky – so it was more of a hurried pace. We missed some things and we would like to go back and see them!
As we drove home, I asked Brian to stop at the store so I could pick up something easy for dinner. Being a Sunday, most of the restaurants we passed were full of people and I really did not feel like trying to find a place to accommodate seven people! It’s not easy with a larger family, let me tell you! We always have to wait – and sometimes, it’s just not worth it. Since we had already had a long day and one kiddo was not being cooperative – picking something up on our way home really was the easiest solution.
A great dinner idea
We spotted a Smart & Final right off the freeway. Brian sat in the van with the kiddos while I made a mad dash inside to decide what to make! Pasta always goes over well in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house so I found the aisle with the pasta sauce. I grabbed the few things I needed for dinner, then headed home.
If you’re not familiar with Smart & Final, it is a great place to do a one-stop shop of everything from produce to meats. Smart & Final carries warehouse size items without a club fee, making shopping easy, less expensive and less daunting to shop in than a big warehouse store! It is the perfect place for you to shop for all of your food needs, bakery items, etc.
