Bite-size chunks of chicken simmered in a basil garlic sauce, then tossed with farfalle pasta and topped with chunky bruschetta and cheese. You have to try this pasta. This has become a new family favorite. I have never seen my daughter devour a bowl of pasta as she did this. It is so good. The basil garlic sauce is out of this world!
Want to know the best part? It takes under 30 minutes from prep to table, and you only need a few items to make this delicious meal come to life in your kitchen.
Everyone knows and loves Kraft. They have come out with a new product called Recipe Makers. I am absolutely in love with this. It combines fresh ingredients with common items already on hand for quick and easy family-friendly meals. Sound familiar?
Here’s how it works. There are nine different products in the line including Verde Chicken Enchilada and New England Pot Roast, to name a few. Each convenient package includes two sauces and the recipe PLUS two additional recipes. You just need to add a few fresh ingredients like pasta or meat to complete the dish that is full of layers of flavor. These are great for the home cook that wants to prepare simple and tasty chef-quality meals.
