Greek Penne and Chicken
Based on the other reviews I couldn't help but make some changes. I used olive oil instead of butter, sauteed the chicken until it began to brown, then added everything but the pasta, parsley, and feta to the pan, along with lemon zest and a good amount of white wine. I simmered the mixture until the chicken was cooked through, and then at the very end stirred in the pasta, feta, and fresh parsley. I also substituted plenty of grape tomatoes for the one. This reciepe can easily be made to your liking. If it is saucier pasta you are looking for, then make sure to add some sort of liquid, whether it be wine, chicken broth, or even some of the pasta cooking water, along with more tomatoes and their juice.

Lemon Orzo Primavera
I wanted to make the recipe as written, but I couldn't resist making some changes, and I'm glad I did. First off, I added a thinly sliced shallot to the pan with the other vegetables. I also added the juice of a lemon along with the zest and the broth. I simmered the mixture covered for a little more than 10 minutes, and in the end I added some cooked, shredded chicken to make it more of a main dish. I didn't bother with the fresh thyme, mainly because I didn't have any, but did add some freshly ground pepper and dried oregano. Finally, I topped it off with some garlic and herb feta and dug in!
