I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today. Its a recipe I cook often yet I’ve never shared it with the world and today I’m sharing it for a very special occassion. It’s my dear friend Aggie’s surprise virtual baby shower! If you’ve never visited Aggie’s Kitchen before, head on over there asap and check out her fresh and healthy recipes that the whole family will love. Aggie and I live near each other and I’ve had the opportunity to get to hang out with her in real life a few times now. We also randomly text message each other on any given day. Can I just tell you that I love the girl! We both eat very much alike… mainly vegetarian and every now and then will eat some meat. When I started brainstorming about what I would bring to her virtual baby shower this recipe came to mind.

This is the ideal flexitarian meal to make. I’m pretty sure once Aggie reads this recipe she’ll be making it for her family. Tons of veggies and pasta in a light cream sauce and best of all the meat is on the side. So for those who want to partake in the meat you top the chicken right on top of the pasta! I know Aggie likes to eat healthy but today she can indulge a little with a cream sauce in this pasta!
