rattlesnake pasta…


have you ever heard of rattlesnake pasta? well it’s a chicken pasta dish that is pretty spicy and really delicious. as usual i can’t find any restaurant that has anything like that on the menu, (that’s a reoccurring theme when you don’t live in the south anymore). so that leads me to make my own. i’ve seen a few recipes floating around online for a rotel chicken,which is similar to rattlesnake pasta, but my problem with that is it uses a whole block of velveeta cheese. and it being me ,of course, i wanted to make it as homemade as possible. so here is the recipe i came up with, really quick and really delicious.my honey even said it goes on the make again list, so pat on the back to me…
