Tip

This is a basic cheese sauce and is thick

(a bit like kids macaroni cheese)

season to personal taste.

You can use different pasta, just adjust cooking time if required.

Very yummy. i added wholegrain mustard for extra flavour and didn't have evaporated milk so used normal milk and it turned out lovey.

This was lovely.  Steamed the asparagus, chopped into small pieces and mixed it into the pasta & chicken mixture.  Even my fussy 8 year old asked for seconds. Thanks for the recipe!

So glad you enjoyed it! My kids love it to and I don't have to feel so guilty about such a creamy sauce ;) 

If you find it too thick' just reduce or even leave out the cream cheese. Frozen veg (peas, corn, broccoli, cauli) can be thrown in with the pasta for extra veggies for the kids, just add a little extra water if necessary.

We have done this twice as my children love it.  Love Thank you so much and too easy, we use corn pasta as we are gluten free and it works really well.  Smile

Thanks for posting, was a little bit gluggy however next time make it, I can watch out for that.

Great easy recipe thou.  Smile and flavoursome !
