I have vivid memories of eating Chicken Cordon Bleu as a child. VIVID ones. Let’s just say that my mom was not a fan of cooking. The “I love cooking” gene skipped a generation from my grandma to me. She fed us kids alot alot alot of frozen chicken cordon bleus. I liked them. But I like this pasta better. I love this pasta, in fact. It’s so rich and creamy...and is filling and delicious...and serves a crowd! I love having this one on hand for our family, or when we have guests over for a meal. Enjoy!
