Heart-healthy pasta with chicken, asparagus, pesto, parmesan cheese, and more fresh ingredients make this Dreamy Creamy Asparagus Chicken Rotini a delicious dinner idea.

Dreamy Creamy Asparagus Chicken Rotini
Pasta recipes are always great for those nights when you need to whip up dinner in a hurry.
I was THRILLED that Dreamfields asked me to work with them since it’s the only pasta I eat.
My doctor recommended Dreamfields to me a few years ago when she thought my blood sugar was looking too high. I was worried I would have to adjust our taste buds, but It tastes like normal pasta and my family can’t tell any difference. Not only do we love the taste, but I’m happy that it has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein for every one cup cooked pasta.
I made a quick pasta dish that is perfect for casual entertaining or just a casual dinner for your family. I talk about busy family nights due to soccer, school events & work schedules. I’m certainly not alone when it comes to having a bit of chaos during the week, so I think you’ll enjoy this quick and healthy dish too. I like EASY healthy meals I can put together quickly. And truth be told…….I love a meal that comes in a bowl.
I wanted to keep my recipe very simple with simple ingredients. I used Dreamfields Rotini Pasta, cooked chicken breast, asparagus tips, Parmesan cheese, a couple of teaspoons of my homemade pesto along with a little salt and pepper and called it dinner! (Printable Recipe below)
