Chicken and Green Chili Pasta

 

On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 95.

You all have seen the White Chicken Enchiladas.  They are smothered in a green chili sour cream sauce.  Oh momma homma!!

One of my lovely readers wrote me to tell me how she turned this in to a pasta dish.  SO EASY!!  Much faster to assemble than rolling the enchiladas and baking.  This was great.  And if I tell my girls we are having noodles for dinner, I am the world’s best mom.
