This recipe for Chicken Potpie Pasta is an easy-to-fix twist on the classic comfort food dish. You get all the chicken potpie flavors without the fuss of making pie crust…perfect for a weeknight meal!
I added a little white wine and some freshly chopped parsley to the sauce, and substituted a cup or so of frozen peas for the green beans. This would also be a great way to use up leftover turkey. Enjoy!
