Alouette Pasta

I can assure you that this has to be in the top 5 "easiest to make" category on my blog. With the heat outside, busy summer schedules, and just a lack of desire to spend time in the kitchen, I feel pretty confident that this recipe will come in handy on those nights where you just don't feel like cooking. This pasta came together in less than 20 minutes. Literally. So if you're short on time but don't want take out this is a great choice. Not to mention I'm obsessed with Alouette cheese and would put it on just about anything... but that's just me! If you don't know what Alouette cheese is it's simply a spreadable garlic and herb soft cheese. It's great melted on pasta, wrapped in chicken, or just spread on a cracker. Try this- it's tasty and easy.
