I am wishing this was here for my breakfast. Creamy and cheese is an instant pick-me-up! the bow-tie pasta would soak it all up and hand deliver the sauce to me. And the chicken makes it a meal!

Claudia,
Bow tie pasta in an Alfredo type sauce is grand indeed!

Kim Kelly said...

One of my all time favorite dishes!! I used to eat this more frequently when I didn't need to watch the waistline quite as much, but I've forgotten about this tasty treat!!

Oh Claudia, what a creamy pasta temptation while I'm trying to lose some extra poundage! But I do believe in splurge/reward days and this one fits the bill. I'll take a cream sauce on pasta ANY DAY! I'm printing this recipe right NOW! Ciao amica!

I like this type of dish - quickly cooked meat and pasta. Works every time, especially with unexpected guests dropping by. Excellent choice with bow-tie pasta - I fancy them a lot, they are pretty!
