White Chicken Enchilada Pasta – A delicious pasta filled with all the wonderful flavor of white chicken enchiladas with the help of green chilies, a little sour cream, and melted jack cheese.
Howdy folks! I come bringing pasta today! This White Chicken Enchilada Pasta is a quick and easy one too! And in my opinion, pasta is total comfort food. Especially a nice cheesy one! When I get a comfort food craving, it is either for pasta or for chips and dip…like this one from last week. But really, pasta with a piece of garlic bread and a little salad = best little dinner ever!
And what I loved about this pasta was how well my kids ate it! My kids don’t turn down a white noodle, especially my boys. We will definitely be eating this White Chicken Enchilada Pasta again soon! It was really a hit! I love taking flavors from other dishes and creating totally new dishes with them. Pasta is the perfect blank canvas to do that. White chicken enchiladas have a white sour cream sauce and green chilies which really pair perfectly with pasta. And no fear, if you are not a fan of cilantro or black olives, just leave them out and you still get an awesome flavored pasta!
And you can totally change up the noodles in here too! I’ve never met a noodle I didn’t like, but I know some people are kind of picky with their noodle selecting. Like my brother-in-law hates angel hair pasta. Huh? That’s one of my favorites! But you could totally make this dish with penne or bowtie pasta as well! Just use whatever you have on hand.
