One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta | 30 Minute Meal weekday supper made easy with Manwich! One pot, 30 minutes until a healthy, tasty family meal!
School has started back and all crazy has begun. I should be prepared by now, fall is always so busy. The boys have new schedules and activities. I volunteer for a couple of organizations and they amp up during the school year; plus, I’m chairing two committees this year in Junior Auxiliary that’s double the
trouble fun! Just to note, it’s not my fun club! (go ahead and follow me on Instagram for a behind the scenes on blogging and more of my life!)
Additionally, I have this blog to run. It’s good when blogging and my life has the same goals. Like, being offered this campaign for Manwich when I was looking for quick meals for my family anyway. Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste. It pairs well with beef and chicken in a variety of dishes. Plus, it offers Easy Weeknight Meals Manwich recipes that are tasty and nutritious.
Why do I love this One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta? Let’s see, it’s one pot, it’s cheesy, it’s pasta, it’s ready in 30 minutes and it’s delicious!
One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta
Really, this recipe couldn’t be simpler and yields a very tasty meal. It’s tangy from the Manwich and creamy from the cheese. You may want to add a salad and bread to make the meal complete.
This recipe is not the typical way to use Manwich. I wanted to show you how versatile Manwich can be. Plus, each can of Manwich is free of artificial flavors and preservatives. Manwich has three different canned sauce varieties – Manwich Original, Manwich Bold, and Manwich Thick & Chunky. I used Bold in this recipe, but any of the three could be substituted.

Wow what great timing. This morning I was looking for a recipe to use up some chicken breast that I had thawed over the weekend and didn’t use. I came across this recipe, and it sounded so quick and easy that I decided to give it a try for lunch. It was very good, and I even got it past my hubby who is not a fan of sloppyjo flavor. I will be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe. Of the recipes on the web site I want to make the Cheesy Chicken Dip.

I didn’t realize the Manwich was free of artificial flavors and ingredients! Good to know. I just made sloppy joes the other night but I made them from scratch cause I didn’t know the canned stuff was free of the artificial stuff. Next time I’m too lazy to do anything, I’ll pick up a couple cans for an easy dinner!
Love the creative use of Manwich in your dish, Paula! WIN!
I don’t like a traditional sloppy joe sandwich much, but I use it a lot in different dishes. easy peasy
The Turkey Sloppy Joe Cornbread Bake for sure!! I was planning to have Turkey Sloppy Joe’s tonight, but I might have to make that instead! Yum!
