Simple Cheesy Chicken Pasta with Peas

Disclosure:

It is so funny, but I stress more about preparing food for kids than I do adults.  I look for something that is delicious and nutritious; a dish that will provide a nice healthy balance.

With adults, it is much easier.  So, when planning for Munchkins play dates, the task is very stressful.  You would think I was planning a meal for a foreign dignitary.  So, this time, I decided to think simple.

Enjoy!

With love from our clean kitchen to yours.
