Chicken Pasta Accents

Years ago, Green Giant started adding pasta & cheese to some of their veggies & called them Pasta Accents. We tried it, but didn't like the flavor of the cheese. I made the same thing using Velveeta & the family loved it! Added cooked chicken the next time for an easy "one pot" dinner. The kids asked for "Chicken Pasta Accents" the next week, so the name stuck!

***This seems like a lot of steps but you can do a lot at the same time.*****

***** I'm sure others make a version of this too. ********
