Chicken Brushcetta Pasta and Kraft Recipe Makers


Chicken Bruschetta Pasta and Kraft Recipe Makers

Do you love Italian food but dread the time it can take to prepare a delicious Italian dish? I find myself there sometimes, craving some sort of pasta loaded with all the zesty herbs and a velvety marinara sauce and but don’t often have the two hours or more to wait for a sauce to simmer, especially during the more hectic weeknights. I’m so excited there is a delicious solution to this problem. Have you tried KRAFT RECIPE MAKERS yet? If you are like me, you may likely shy away from anything in a package and would rather stick with making things from scratch. For me these have become an exception to packaged foods avoidance. These are a product I actually love. They come with two sauces that are loaded with delicious flavor, which brings up another reason I don’t normally liked packaged food: they tend to be bland. Not the case with these. These have the flavors I’d normally add to my entrees, so I love that they’ve done the hard part for me. All you have to do is add your fresh ingredients, like in this case the chicken, pasta and Parmesan cheese, and you’ve got a simple and tasty meal your whole family will enjoy in no time.

The other great thing about KRAFT RECIPE MAKERS is that they come in nine varieties so you don’t just have to stick with the same thing. They also come with three recipes or you can make up your own. If you like to create exciting dishes with your own twist, these make a great start. I loved this Chicken Bruschetta Pasta. The simple recipe on the box looked perfect to me so I decided to make it as they had it listed. It was a wonderful dish my whole family loved, and I loved how easy it was to prepare. Quick and delicious is not always easy to come by. With the success of this pasta, I’m excited to try out the other varieties! Enjoy!

I would marinade the salmon for about an hour in the fridge (not longer because then it starts to actually cook) and place it on the grill for some smokey flavor. I would add some sauteed julienne veggies (yellow, green and red bell peppers as well as carrots and some mushrooms) to soba noodles as a side dish for the meal adding some of the marinade to the noodles to complement the fish.
