Creamy Chicken Pasta

 
Spring activities are in full swing! Every night we have softball practice, games and then you throw in a little cheer into the mix and life gets a little crazy! Half the time, all I want to do is run to the local fast food place and pick up dinner because I’m done for the day but then my mom guilt kicks in and I want and know that I need to feed my family something tasty and good for them. It’s really hard at our house because I have such picky eaters that sometimes they don’t even want to try it before they even see what I have made!
 
I really try to come up with recipes that are full of flavor and are super easy! I can honestly say that this one is a keeper! My 17 year old even came home for lunch to eat leftovers. Can I get a hallelujah??? You mom’s out there know what I’m talking about!
