canned chicken pasta

This chicken pasta has very simple ingredients in it, and most of them are probably in your kitchen already. You don’t have to use red peppers if you don’t like them. I like them because I wanted to add more flavor to my pasta. You can use any vegetables you have. A like to choose something colorful; it makes my pasta look so fancy.

Quick and easy canned chicken pasta

This is a very cheesy pasta that you can put together in less than 30 minutes. The secret to a quick meal is canned chicken. Gooey cheese and pasta with chicken will have everyone asking for more. The recipe is very easy but the sauce is incredibly delicious and the cheese accent the flavors. I usually use flavored bread crumbs to increase past flavor but you can take any bread crumbs you can find.

Recipe Notes

Don't be afraid to experiment with flavors! You can use a traditional Alfredo sauce or anything you like. You can add more butter and cheese for a more filling meal. If you cook for a big crowd, double the ingredients.
