#kraftrecipemakers - Chicken Bruschetta Pasta

Is there any better fall comfort food than pasta? Yeah, I think not.

The #1 item my husband requests on the menu each week is pasta. We love trying new pasta dishes, so I was excited to try the new Kraft Recipe Makers for a quick family meal.

As a busy work-from-home mama, the last thing I want to do each night is cook dinner. Many times we end up with eggs, a crock pot meal or grilled cheese sandwiches. So having a “meal helper” from a box is definitely not above me. I liked that I could include my own fresh ingredients {easy to customize} and that it helped make a great meal for my family — quickly, on a budget, and without a ton of clean-up.

We made Kraft’s chicken bruschetta pasta and were pleased with the results! Lots of flavor and SO simple. The husband was ecstatic when I told him what was for dinner.

Here’s how I made this quick family meal:

  1. I’ve seen these in the store a few times but haven’t given them a try yet. I’ve heard that they’re good though!

  2. MMMM. This looks awesome?
    Have you ever tried Pasta Milano from Macaroni Grille? It looks just like that and I’m wondering if they compare.
