Chicken pasta is a well-known and well-loved comfort food classic.
You'll be familiar with a dish like Chicken Tetrazzini, but you may not have imagined having Southwest Chicken Mac and Cheese, or Chicken-Asparagus Mac and Cheese on the table before. What's so wonderful about the combination of chicken and pasta is that by just adding in some vegetables—either to the dish or on the side—you've got a filling meal ready to go, and sometimes in only a matter of minutes.
For warming up on cool winter evenings, bake a tray of Heavenly Chicken Lasagna, or simply fill a bowl full of Chicken and Bowtie Pasta for a quick and easy supper that is casual and on-the-go. Whether you prefer your chicken paired with a bold, red sauce, or delicately seasoned with a light, white sauce, chicken and pasta dishes will always be rich and fulfilling. Think of chicken and pasta as the perfect partners and plan to have some cuts of chicken and several shapes of pasta ready to go: add in some simple herbs and spices, and your favorite simple sauce, and this dinner is ready to hit the table.
