  1. This reminds me of the healthier pasta version of a chicken and rice bake that we used to have for dinner! And don’t peas, corn, and carrots just make everything happy 😀

      Ha ha, brilliant, thanks Rebecca.

      Naturally we’d have to make this with gluten free pasta for you, but I’m sure you’d love it, and it WOULD make you feel all fancy and good too!

  4. I just love dishes that incorporate all the food groups! And this sounds so comforting as well!
