Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta

We’ve been making this Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta as dinner for a couple years now, but had recently forgotten about it.

I’m glad that I remembered this recipe, because it is seriously one of the easiest and quickest meals that we’ve tried and that my family loves!

The sauce itself is only 5 ingredients, and it works over any pasta that you’ve got on-hand. We usually use whole wheat pasta and my kids love it just the same.

My family does tend to have issues with large chunks of tomatoes, so I will usually throw the can into the food processor or the blender just until the chunks are more manageable for my picky family.

Also, if the cheese does a bit of clumping when you add the chicken in, do not worry. It still tastes awesome!

Simple, delicious and ready in just minutes.
