Today: The secret to a satisfying weeknight meal? Protein and carbs.

Some nights we want a bright, fruit-spiked salad, other nights we crave a huge, hearty spread, but most nights we want lotsa pasta—something that's quick, simple to prepare, and so satisfying you would never know it took you thirty minutes. Add some chicken to the mix and you have yourself a square meal (that still fits in a bowl). Here are 5 chicken pastas to sate any weeknight craving you have—from nutmeg-spiced hakka noodles to classic penne with meatballs:
