Creamy Chicken & Artichoke Pasta

I was given the challenge to create a recipe using some of the La Romanella line and decided to do something different than a traditional pasta & “red sauce” meal. So, I made a “white sauce” dish instead!As soon as I saw the La Romanella marinated artichokes, I knew I wanted to include them in something (stay tuned for a delish spinach & artichoke dip soon too). So, I used the creamy italian chicken recipe as a starting point and went from there! 🙂 Here’s what I came up with:

Creamy Chicken & Artichoke Pasta


1 16oz. package penne pasta

2 chicken breasts (chopped)

1-2 C marinated artichokes (chopped)

1 8oz. package of cream cheese

1 C milk

1 C shredded parmesan cheese

garlic powder & italian seasonings to taste


1. Boil pot of water. Cook pasta

2. Already cooked chicken would be great for this recipe and greatly reduce prep time. Otherwise, while pasta cooks, cook chicken. I put olive oil in a pan, and added a bit of chicken stock and garlic powder to the cooking chicken.

3. While chicken cooks/pasta boils, chop marinated artichokes.

4. Chop chicken.

5. Into pan on medium heat, add cooked chicken, cream cheese, milk, and seasonings (I added half a packet of italian salad dressing mix). Stir, allowing cream cheese to melt. Then, stir in artichokes and parmesan cheese. Heat & stir until everything is well-incorporated & creamy!

6. Serve over the cooked pasta and enjoy!

      The artichokes were seriously SO good! 🙂 Now, I’m on an artichoke kick! And, even better, the boys LOVED them too! 🙂
