Chicken Penne Primavera

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Tee Lee

This one-dish meal is lemony, creamy, vegetable-y, and delicious. The amounts (and even types) of vegetables could be changed depending on your tastes. Just leave out the chicken to make this meal vegetarian.

Other reviewers have said that the lemon is a little much, but my family absolutely loved it! Don't change a thing!
