I know what you are thinking, but I promise that this really is a yummy and flavorful angel hair chicken pasta dish, even though it might not look very impressive. But let’s all be honest here, the over the top beautiful dishes aren’t always going to hit the spot like a little home cooking will.
Orange (as well as pink) are kind of the worst colors ever to photograph. At least that’s my opinion. It’s just hard to really capture the color. So this yummy, creamy pasta is even harder to get the full feeling for because of that. But just stick with me here. This is one of those dishes that I technically shouldn’t care all that much about, especially since it uses a mushroom soup which is never my favorite, but you can’t even tell that’s what it is in this pasta recipe. It’s perfect for company too because while it looks like you spent hours making a sauce you and I will know just how lazy we really were.
Anyway, try this out if you need a fast, no fuss dinner. It’s great if someone is sick or just had a baby and you want to drop something off to help out the family too!
Thanks Nalani for all of your yummy recipes you pass on to us!
