Chicken Cavatappi

Chicken Cavatappi

Heeyyy!! I took a few cooking recovery days off. I’m baaaaack! Making a requested chicken pasta. Chicken Cavatappi to be exact! I went to Applebee’s on Sunday and tried theirs. It was pretty good. But, you know, I love to battle them. So, of course I had to recreate my version for my Cookies. Check it out!
