Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is a great use for leftover cooked chicken breasts. Larger shaped pastas like rotini, rotelle, bowties, and mafalda work best.

My family really enjoyed this. I think next time I will add a pinch of cayenne pepper or something to add a little zing to it.

This was good! I used penne noodles because that is what I had. I also used some dried onions instead of the scallion. I forgot to serve it with sour cream, but it was great without it. My 17 month old loved it! Thanks!

I made this for dinner last night. While I was not too fond of it, my spouse and 9 year old had seconds. I would make it again if they asked.
