Recipe Swap Tuesday: Queso Chicken Pasta

I know I just posted a recipe for Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Pasta a few weeks ago, but this recipe is different and it happens to be H's favorite dinner. It drives me nuts because as easy as it is to make and as yummy as it is, it's a pain to clean up after *gotta love cheese* but I promise it's worth it ;-)


1 box of rotini pasta
Extra virgin olive oil
2 bags of reduced fat cheddar cheese
1/4-1/2 yellow onion, diced (adjust to your tastes)
1 can of original Rotel
Diced grilled chicken (I throw in about a handful)
Pepper to taste


Boil rotini for 11-12 minutes and then drain, set aside
In a large pot over medium heat, saute diced onion and chicken in olive oil
Add cheese and Rotel and mix well
Add pasta and mix until combined
Add pepper to taste
Serve with salad and refrigerate any leftovers
