I got this meal idea from one of Super Healthy Kid’s Daily Dinners on facebook. The meal Amy posted was chicken, pasta and veggies made with a homemade white sauce. I looked up “homemade white pasta sauce” and it looked so easy I gave it a try.
I cooked the whole wheat pasta ahead of time and used frozen veggies and leftover chicken breast so was able to put this meal together in under 15 minutes!
It was really good and the kids liked the creamy pasta. I served it with bread and fruit. The perfect summer meal.
Have a great weekend!
