Mmm Monday ~ One of My Favorite Family Recipes!


Creamy Chicken Pasta

Well, it's Mmm Monday, and after all the yummy food that I'm sure was eaten during the Easter holiday, I thought it would be a good idea to share a favorite family recipe of mine!  Here's the recipe for Creamy Chicken Pasta.  It is super simple and super delicious!  Enjoy!


CREAMY CHICKEN PASTA: Makes 6 servings Prep: 10 minutes, Cook: 15 minutes


  • 1 (0.6 oz.) envelope Italian dressing mix
  • 1 (8 oz.) package wide egg noodles
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


  1. Remove 1 Tbsp. Italian dressing mix from envelope, and set aside; reserve remaining mix for another use.
  2. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain well, and return noodles to pan.
  3. Stir in 2 Tbsp. butter, and toss to coat.  Stir in chopped chicken, next 3 ingredients, and 1 Tbsp. dressing mix.  Cook mixture over medium-high heat, tossing to coat evenly, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.  Serve immediately.
