I love simple and tasty meals, something every family member can enjoy and doesn’t take the whole day to prepare. Pasta bake dishes are great for family meals and this chicken enchilada pasta bake was delicious! It is easy to whip up, no fancy ingredients, and comes together quickly. I always prep some shredded chicken for the week in my crockpot as we typically eat it 2-3 times weekly, you can just cook boneless breast in some broth, on high about 3-4 hours then shred with a couple of forks, it will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days and you can even freeze it for easy use later. This pasta bake serves 6 at 6SP on blue, 7SP on green, and 3SP on purple if using whole wheat pasta.
