This quick easy and delicious Chicken Pasta with Fresh Tomato Cream Sauce recipe features high-quality Heavy Cream from today’s sponsor Hood Cream. Premium quality cream trusted by both top chefs and home cooks like myself.
This creamy chicken pasta is just the thing when you need an easy dinner and have fresh tomatoes in season.
While we are still enjoying warm summer weather and a bounty of heirloom tomatoes from our garden, my daughter will be back to school very shortly. Between school shopping and all the other things I am trying to get done this time of year, time is in limited supply. That is where easy dinner recipes like this delightfully creamy chicken and pasta recipe featuring fresh tomatoes really save me.
Although this meal is on the table in under 30 minutes, it is made entirely from fresh scratch ingredients. No processed ingredients in this dish, just plenty of flavor and comforting goodness. The rich cream mostly makes the sauce, while the chopped tomatoes are added last to just slightly cook and maintain their lovely seasonal texture and flavor.
If your family is small like mine, that is not a problem either. The leftovers reheat well and make a great lunch the next day.
Serve this delicious creamy pasta dish with some fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top. Perhaps a green salad with Greek Vinaigrette or Avocado Lime Ranch dressing or some vegetarian Zucchini Boats to start the meal. A crisp sauvignon blanc, Cape Codder cocktail or Peach Iced Tea with be nice beverage choices.
