Chicken Tetrazzini

A simple creamy pasta dish with chicken, cheese and the additon of a few shredded veggies to hide from your pickiest of eaters.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a great holiday and loved visiting all of our family, but there really is no place like home. Today I'm sharing a delicious pasta recipe for Chicken Tetrazzini. This recipe is perfect if you're short on time and need to get a meal on the table rather quickly. I found this recipe online awhile back and it looked so creamy and good. 

What caught my eye was the additon of shredded zucchini and carrots. If you have kids than you know some of them can be pickly, so you have to hide those veggies sometimes. This creamy pasta dish is not low cal, but if you make a few substitutes it will help. You can use half and half, light sour cream, fat free chicken soup and whole grain pasta. 

I have only made this dish as written, so I can't comment on the taste if you make those changes, but it's worth trying. I still think this is a really great pasta recipe and I highly recommend giving it a try and don't let the cream sauce scare you away.

I made this for dinner tonight. It was very good. I left out the zucchini (forgot to buy it), I used 1/2 c. whole milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream, otherwise it was too salty. I didn't add the noodles to the sauce, I kept them separate, that way each person can add as much or little sauce as they like.
I will make this recipe again.
