Easy Chicken Linguine


We eat a lot of noodle bowls in our house. Lots of different flavor profiles, but the combination of noodles, protein and some type of sauce is usually a surefire hit with my whole family. It’s also a one-bowl meal, especially if you throw some veggies in. This mama really likes that.

This is an oldie but goodie that I make when my pantry and/or fridge is running low. It really doesn’t require much in the way of ingredients, but it has great flavor. It’s a perfect weeknight meal that comes together in minutes and never draws any complaints.

I especially love this for lunch the next day! The garlic and parmesan just get happy together and it’s sooooo good.

p.s. If you use the pre-packaged parmesan from the dairy section, it will be a little clumpy. If you have time to shred your own, the texture is smoother. Either way is fine.
