Creamy Chicken Pasta w/ Baked French Bread

Dinner Tonight: Creamy Chicken Pasta  w/ Baked French Bread

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole
Grain English Muffin. And as always my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I prepared Mom a Scrambled Egg and toasted her some Raisin Bread. After Breakfast it house cleaning day, vacuumed and dusted. Then cleaned the fridge also. After Lunch I went and spent the day with Dad. He seems to be getting somewhat better. His appetite is back and a lot less stomach pain. They have him on light therapy until later in the week. Not a bad Winters Day out, partly sunny and 34 degrees. For Dinner tonight I'm trying a new item, Bear Creek Country Kitchens Creamy Chicken Pasta Mix. Tonight its Creamy Chicken Pasta 
w/ Baked French Bread. 

I had seen the Bear Creek ads in all the Cooking Magazines so when I came across several of their products I grabbed a couple to try. One of the items is the Bear Creek Country Kitchens Creamy Chicken Pasta Mix. It uses Orecchiette Pasta, which comes in a rich and creamy Chicken flavored Sauce with Carrots. All I added was Water and some Pulled Chicken.

To prepare the dish I'll need; 1 package of Bear Creek Country Kitchens Creamy Chicken Pasta Mix, water, and Pulled Chicken. While at Kroger I had purchased a Simple Truth Whole Roasted Chicken. Pulled all the Meat and I had my Chicken.

To make the Dish; I took a 2 Quart Saucepan, gave it a light spray of Pam Cooking Spray and added
3 1/2 cups water to it. Heated the water to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought the mixture back to a rolling boil. Reduced the heat to a medium boil. Cooked 14 minutes, stirring it occasionally. Removed it from the heat and let it set for 8 minutes. as it cooled it thickened up. As it was cooking it had a mouth watering aroma. And the taste is just as good! Good Chicken and Cheese taste and along with the Pasta, Carrots, and added Chicken makes a delicious Dinner! Love hearty, comfort food, meals.

I also reheated the Pillsbury French Bread which went perfect with the Chicken/Pasta Mixture. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer's Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with some Smucker's Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping.
