Cheesy Chicken Pasta

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (72 votes)

This ooey-gooey pasta dish is a crowd-pleaser for adults and kids alike—think rich and creamy macaroni-and-cheese tossed with cauliflower and chicken. Serve with a spinach salad.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Somehow this 35 minute dish turned into an hour. Basic recipe, nothing to spectacular about this, lacked in any bold flavor. Although adding some hot sauce was a good remedy, you can pretty much do any add ons to this. Good, but not great...

Instructions are inaccurate.

Presentation was beautiful, however if I was a novice in the kitchen this casserole would have been a disaster. The recipe is easy to follow. The instructions are simple and well written, but the ratio of cheese to liquid is way off so are the times for reduction. In the end I found it simpler and more effective to add another cup and a quarter of cheese. If you don't want to add more cheese, set aside 1 cup of milk and make your cheese sauce out 2 cups milk and 3 TBS flour or 1 and 1/2 TBS cornstarch. I added a dash of Nutmeg otherwise the sauce tastes a bit flat. Instead of white wine I used chicken broth. I don't usually have alcohol on hand. I also added some garlic to give it just a little more flavor. The recipe is good for someone who doesn't mind playing a round of Kitchen detective, Though I strongly recommend that those looking for a quick meal or people just learning how to cook find a different recipe.

Loved the idea, the cauliflower, penne and green onion were beautiful
