Easy Cheesy Salsa Chicken Pasta

I’ve been experimenting with some pasta dishes lately because pasta is always a safe choice in this house. Everyone loves pasta. But we get tired of the same few pasta dinners and I needed to mix it up. This combination was a huge hit with the kids and the adults.

Ingredients:

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken
16 oz jar of chunky salsa
16 oz tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
6oz pkg French Fried Onions
1 box favorite pasta (I used rotini)

Directions:

1. Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain and return to pot.
2. Add chicken, salsa, tomato sauce, water, and shredded cheese to drained pasta; stir to combine.
3. Pour into 13×9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
4. Sprinkle with French Fried Onions.
5. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
6. Uncover and cook additional 10 minutes.

We had zero leftovers after this dinner. The kids loved it. I think next time I will add more salsa because my family likes it a little saucier but the flavor was fantastic!
