Easy Cheesy Salsa Chicken Pasta Recipe

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.

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!
