You'll love this creamy tuscan chicken pasta because it is full of flavor and so easy to throw together. This recipe isn't complicated at all and you can really use one pan! This pasta dish is ideal for easy week night recipes that the whole family will love! The rich creamy parmesan and tuscan flavors of sun dried tomato are the perfect combination.
I used banza chickpea pasta for this pasta recipe but you can use any pasta you'd like! I don't recommend subbing the heavy cream for anything else as it really sets the texture and flavor of this pasta dish. Feel free to add in whatever veggies you like if you're not keen on the ones added here. just don't forget the dried tomato! If you don't like dried tomato, try fresh chopped ones for a fresher flavor. This tuscan pasta has a creamy sauce that thickens up after cooking but if you want it thicker just add 1/2 tbsp of arrowroot flour to the dish, mix and let simmer before serving to thicken the sauce.
