How do I cook pasta with chicken

Chicken and cream cheese sauce with ribbon noodles

Chicken and cream cheese sauce with ribbon noodles go quickly and everyone likes them. With a few simple ingredients and fresh tomatoes, lunch or dinner is on the table in 30 minutes.

While the pasta is cooking, make quick and easy tomato and cream cheese sauce. Instead of the cream cheese, you can also use crème fraîche.

What do you have to consider when cooking with cream cheese?

For sauces that are cooked with cream cheese, you should not use low-fat cream cheese, as there is a risk of curdling. Low-fat cream cheese must not get too hot, otherwise it will flocculate. That doesn't make a big difference in taste, but it's not so nice to look at.

However, if you should still use low-fat products, I recommend the following:

  • At the end stir the low-fat cream cheese into the sauce and do not let it boil again
  • Use a low-fat crème fraîche instead of normal cream cheese.

Which vegetables go well with the chicken and cream cheese sauce?

You can add the vegetables that you like to the sauce. In addition to fresh tomatoes, it also fits:

  • zucchini
  • paprika
  • Carrots
  • Peas
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Mushrooms

Which noodles go well with the chicken and cream cheese sauce?

We prefer to eat the creamy sauce with ribbon noodles. The ribbon noodles taste best with the creamy cream cheese sauce. Of course, you can also use other noodles. This also goes well with spaghetti, penne, fusilli and so on. The sauce also tastes great with rice.
