Quick Parmesan Pasta with Chicken7:35:00 PM
Sometimes, you throw together something from leftovers and
have few expectations from it. When I made this dish, I was just hoping for
edible. What I ended up with something I call Parmesan Pasta with Chicken, and it's really good—my husband had some critiques (we need
to add a little spice)—but he had seconds. So did I, as well as one of the
twins. The other twin had 4 helpings and I finally cut her off. The
four-year-old wouldn’t touch it at first, but after some coaxing decided it was
ok—I think since it looked different she decided she didn’t like it. My husband
asked that I make it again—extremely high praise for a reworking of leftovers,
I would say!
Lower heat of vegetables to medium-low. Add pasta to boiling water in the other pot and cook until done according to directions on the box. Add milk and chicken to vegetables. Simmer (do not boil) until thickened slightly. Add sun-dried tomatoes, stir to combine.
Turn off heat. Add drained pasta and cheese. Stir to combine. Because of the small size of the pasta, it has more surface area to stick to the sauce, so don’t panic that your sauce looks runny before the pasta and cheese is added. It should thicken up quickly.
