Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



What drew me to this recipe was the different technique of making a creamy pasta. Made all in one pot, it is more efficient. I used soba noodles and added leftover cooked chicken. Did not change anything else and it was perfect! DH furrowed his brow and looked up and said "this is awesome!" with a big smile on his face! Thank you for sharing this keeper Karen! Made for Pick Me! tag game.
