    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    From the back panel of Barilla Piccolini MINI Fusilli. Recipe calls for fresh chicken breast but I cut up leftover cooked chicken from last night's meal. Very creamy and so easy to prepare.

      I always like to buy a cooked chicken when they are on special and freeze the meat especially for this type of meal. I found this meal very simple to make but would like to add garlic.
