Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Pasta Sauce is EXACTLY what you need on a night like this! Our creamiest and dreamiest sauce yet, chockfull of veggies (frozen or fresh both work) infused with hard yellow cheese melted to perfection. Did we mention it's heavily accented with perfect chicken simmered on butter? This sauce is best over pasta, but we won't get mad if you use it for rice, polenta, mashed potatoes, etc. etc.
