Welcome to my blog! Join me in my adventure of starting a business, cooking, baking and running a house. Along with having 2 krazy boys running around the house while I'm at it.
I love to cook. I love watching everyone enjoy all the yummy stuff I've made. It makes it a great accomplishment.
I figured I would share one of my favorite recipes to start out. Chicken Alfredo Pesto Pasta.
What You Need
1/2lb. Penne Pasta
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
2 cups milk
1/2 cup (1/2 of 8-oz. tub) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese Spread
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp. pesto
COOK pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add
chicken; cook and stir 7 min. or until done.
STIR in milk and cream cheese spread; cook 3 min.
or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Add peppers, Parmesan and pesto; stir. Cook 3 min. or until heated
through, stirring occasionally.
DRAIN pasta. Add to cream cheese sauce; toss to coat.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
Substitute 1-1/2 cups roasted red pepper strips for the fresh red pepper strips.
For more intense flavor, stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon
zest or 1/2 cup pitted dry-cured olives, along with the peppers,
Parmesan and pesto.
This is my favorite go to recipe. The kids absolutely love it! As do I!
