Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I did add a few extra's into the recipe, but everything else was as per the recipe. I added some semi sun dried tomato and some dried mushrooms as I did have them on hand to use up. We really did enjoy this creamy chicken pasta with a cheesy tomato and bacon flavor . This recipe has all the right flavors, the chicken and bacon work so well in this recipe and all the flavors compliment each other so perfectly. I did have leftovers which I am reheating in the oven as I write this review. Served with some garlic bread this made for a lovely evening meal that was really enjoyed by all.
