Dump-and-bake Chicken Pesto Alfredo
"You don’t even have to boil the pasta for this simple dump-and-bake chicken pesto Alfredo! With tomatoes, fresh spinach, and just 10 minutes of prep, the one-dish meal is seriously the world’s easiest weeknight dinner. Why You’ll Love this Chicken Pesto Alfredo Recipe: - Easy. Instead of sauteing or boiling the pasta and vegetables, this version takes advantage of my favorite dump-and-bake method to eliminate tedious prep work. There’s no need to boil the pasta in advance or to pre-cook the veggies. Instead, all of the ingredients mingle, share seasonings, and simmer together in one dish in the oven. - Family-friendly. There are certain recipes that are just guaranteed to be a hit with the kids (and with the husband)! If it involves creamy pasta, I can throw just about anything else into the casserole and know that my boys will clean their plates. This particular cheesy, creamy chicken dinner includes fresh vegetables and tender noodles for a simple, satisfying dinner. - Lots of Flavor. Thanks to the addition of white wine, basil pesto, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and zippy crushed red pepper flakes, this isn’t your average boring or bland chicken alfredo pasta! - Versatile. This recipe is easily adaptable, so you can change up the ingredients to suit your family’s preferences or to use up whatever you have on hand. For instance, omit the spinach, but add sliced mushrooms, frozen corn, peas, or diced carrots. You can use raw chicken (instead of the rotisserie chicken), or try cooked sausage."
