Cheesy Chicken Pasta Toss

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 0 mins

An easy to prepare meal that features a creamy sauce! Total time to table is 30 minutes! I like adding some steamed broccoli to the dish or serving it with broccoli spears and crusty bread. Adjusted from a Simple and Delicious recipe submitted by Margaret Penaflor.

Very easy and very good :) Made just as directed, I added the suggested broccoli, which adds some lovely colour and freshness, and I would have added sliced mushrooms, but realised too late that I'd used them up the night before. This was a quick, easy and delicious midweek dinner, thank you HokiesLady! It was made for Alphabet tag game.

Wow, what a very tasty dish. Definitely a recipe keeper though not one to make every week as it won't help me win the battle of the bulge. Would make a great dish to serve to company though...they will think you slaved in the kitchen even though the dish comes together very easy. I had some fresh sliced mushrooms that I added to the sauce so that they didn't go to waste. Made for the Feb/March 2010 and Special Event Potluck Tag Games.

Superb! Creamy and garlicky. It's hard to believe this was so quick and easy to make. I made this as written, but added about 2 tbsp of the parmesan right into the cream sauce as well as some for sprinkling. I think sliced mushrooms would be great in this. Thanx for posting. I'll certainly make this again. This would be great for dinner guests.
