Creamy Chicken and Pasta

Mmmmm pasta.

All we had left was a chicken breast and some cream cheese. Boyfriend did NOT want to go grocery shopping. Fine! I said. I'll make something.

4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 Extra Large bouillon cube
Tablespoon Italian seasonings
1/2 cup water
1 diced chicken breast
4oz cream cheese
Half pound pasta
Paprika (optional)

Serves 3

Brown garlic and butter in medium saucepan. Add bouillon cube and water, heat until dissolved. Add seasonings and chicken breast, cook until chicken is done. Add cream cheese, stir until melted. Simmer while pasta is prepared. Add pasta, stir to coat. Serve topped with paprika.

This is a pretty cheap meal--without chicken, it is about $3-4, around $5-6 with it. It satisfies the need for delicious creamy goodness. The chicken is not necessary, so it makes a great there-is-nothing-to-eat meal. And Boyfriend liked it!

Also, leftovers make an easy lunch.
