I am always looking for recipes that are easy for the weeknights so that I don't have to spend as much time cooking dinner. When I get home from work I want to spend as much time with my son and husband as possible and less time cooking dinner.
This Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta is a great homemade meal that is easy and does not take a lot of time. We all really loved this variation on Chicken Cordon Bleu. The flavors tasted really great in a pasta. I can't wait to make this dish again!
