You Need to Try This Rosemary Herbed Chicken with Pasta Recipe

Chicken and pasta is a time-tested, classic combination. The first chicken and pasta dish that probably comes to your mind is chicken parmesan. This recipe has parmesan in it, but it's a distinctly different dish.

The pasta you choose for this recipe is up to you, but we recommend penne, elbow, or mostaccioli. Go for a whole-wheat variety for a pasta dish that's packed with plenty of fiber. For the Parmesan cheese, freshly grated is best if you can come by it.

This dish will cook in the slow cooker, making it even easier to prepare. On high, this dish will need to cook for three and a half hours. On low, it will need to cook for seven hours. Which setting you pick depends on your schedule. If you need this dish to be done quickly, pick high. If you have the time to wait, cook it on low.

Some cooks claim that meat doesn't tenderize properly when cooked on high. In our opinion, both settings can provide wonderfully tender meat. However, allowing your meat to tenderize for longer in the slow cooker is never a bad idea. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
