Mediterranean Chicken & Pasta Bake…a Monday Night Miracle

Even though my brain was fried and my body was near collapse, I somehow managed to pull off an amazing (and quick!) dinner.  I knew by noon that I would need to rely on easy proteins and basic ingredients, since I had no desire to battle the supermarket crowd, so I did what I always …
