Dump-and-Bake Spring Pasta
"Pasta is baked with chicken and all of spring's finest vegetables for a light and healthy one pot meal! With asparagus, artichokes, carrots, peas, and chives, this easy Dump-and-Bake Spring Pasta has all of the fresh flavors that you crave -- with just 10 minutes of prep. You don't even have to boil the pasta! The dish is appealing to kids because it bakes in a mild, garlic and Parmesan sauce. It's not overpowering, but it's flavorful enough to give the chicken and vegetables some personality! As usual, I've kept the recipe super-simple, thanks to the dump-and-bake method -- which relies on a handful of shortcuts. It's full of flavor, yet low in calories, high in fiber, and high in protein. This Dump-and-Bake Spring Pasta is seriously The Holy Grail of easy weeknight dinners!"
NotesCooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half and bake the pasta in a 1-quart casserole dish. The cooking instructions remain the same.
