Cream Cheese Chicken Pasta

 

Discovery! I was cleaning out my refrigerator and found a brick of cream cheese. The expiration date was approaching next week, so I thought, “I need to use this up. But, er, how?”

I opened a bottle of beer and by the time I finished, I thought, “Let’s melt it down and pour it over pasta.” Since I have 20, 10 for $10, boxes of pasta.

You’ll Need:

Whatever you like. Seriously. I pulled out a few items, tossed it in a pot and VoilĂ  ! Fantastico ! (I’m starting to make up my own words). Hungry, I didn’t think that this was going to be a blog post. I didn’t measure out the ingredients, and there are no photos of the preparation. However, when I was finished, I realized that it was really good and kicked myself in the arse.

I Used:

1 pound of pasta, cooked to taste.

A bag of frozen broccoli

Oil cured black olives, pitted

Shredded Chicken, precooked. I had two breasts leftover. Or, use canned chicken. Why not?

A handful of cherry tomatoes

Some diced parsley

About 5 cloves, squished or chopped – whichever you prefer.

A bunch of green onions, chopped, and included some of the green stems

Balsamic glaze

Salt and Pepa

How I prepared it…

I cooked and drained the pasta. In the same pasta pot, I put in the green onions, garlic and cream cheese over a medium heat until the cheese melted. I added in the pasta and all other ingredients, minus the balsamic glaze. I used the glaze as a garnish by drizzling a little over the pasta. I served it up warm with a crusty bread and beer.

All good things can only come from cleaning out your refrig.

Have you put everything-but-the-kitchen-sink in a pot and it turn out Fantastico? Please share because this girl likes to eat.

      Yes ! It’s very versatile. And, I love your idea about eliminating the pasta for a tortilla chip dip. Oh, so hungry.

      Thanks for your comments.
