Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, cook chicken in large skillet on medium heat 5 to 6 min. or until done, stirring occasionally. Add all remaining ingredients except Parmesan; mix well. Cook 3 min. or until Neufchatel is completely melted and chicken mixture is heated through, stirring frequently.
  • Drain pasta; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Food Facts

Some cooks prefer to drain the pasta well to prevent excess water from diluting the sauce, while others like a little moisture to help prevent pasta from sticking together. In any case, reserve a few tablespoons of cooking water to add to pasta if it starts to stick together or if you want to dilute the sauce.

I made this last night, doubled the recipe because I have 3 kids and a husband who likes the leftovers for lunch. I cooked the chicken in a garlic & herb seasoning and a little olive oil to give it more flavor. Not one person complained (which is rare) about eating it, and it was definitely less bland than many of the other recipes I have tried. I used the oscar meyer bacon crumbles (easy and just as yummy), but doubling the water was just a bit too much. I have a feeling that it will make the leftovers better though, so it works out. Everyone liked this one, and I liked it even more than they did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok, but like stated in the other reviews, I too had to use more cheese. It was ok, but like stated in the other reviews, I too had to use more cheese. I used the whole 8 oz and that still didn't quite seem like enough...we would have liked it more if it was a bit creamier. I used more bacon since my boyfriend complains about never having enough in these recipes. It was just kind of bland for our taste too...the only real taste came from the bacon. I would definitely use more spices, maybe some garlic salt or Italian seasoning next time I try this recipe. Not 100% in love with it, but I'll give it one more try with a few of my own ideas added.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I will use this recipes again. I will use this recipes again. But it is base for a pasta bake. I added extra cream cheese like noted in others review. And it was just ok. I took the left overs and added 1/4 package of cream cheese to an 8 oz can of italian seasoned tomato sauce and 1 cup of Italian shredded cheese. Then when heated topped with cheese and more bacon crumbles and finished cooking till melted. Boyfriend said this is the way it should have been made the first time. I did add mushrooms and extra seasoning when cooking the chicken the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Wow! Oh Wow!! What a GREAT recipe that you can add stuff to to make it super delicious. I made this today and between three of us, plates were licked and leftovers started fights. I used chicken broth instead of water, doubled the cream cheese and omitted the bacon. SUPER EASY and fast. 20 minutes tops. Parmesan sprinkled on top after really was the icing on the cake. I used shells instead of bow-ties, holds sauce better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was so good. This was so good. I made it last night with leftover chicken thighs, Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chilis and I used 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth instead of water to make up for the smaller can of tomatoes. I served it with linguine too. This is the kind of dish you can change up the pasta and protein every time you fix it.

Followed the rest of the recipe, doubling for my larger family. I added fresh spinach, wilting for a few minutes before I served it. Wow, it was great. Everyone loved it. It is a keeper!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very very yummy! very very yummy! I think I will go a little lighter on the tomatoes next time and maybe less water- or more cream cheese? I'm thinking about going back and sprinkling some of the bacon on top too- but very good I will defintely make it again!

This is a great quick fix dinner, especially when you have your chicken already made up ahead of time. I did use 8 oz cream cheese, garlic salt & omitted the bacon. My family loves it (and so do I)! Thanks for the great recipe!
