Hello Julie’s Eats & Treats readers!  It’s me Jaren from Diary of a Recipe Collector, and I’ve come over this month bringing you all some pasta!  Pasta is ultra comfort food in my opinion.  And this time of year is all about comfort food!

The fact that it is half way through November already blows my mind.  I feel like we just started school and here we are about to embark on the holiday season.  That’s crazy how fast it passes!  Is it because I have 4 kids that keep me  so busy now?

But this holiday season, I plan to really enjoy the little moments with my kids.  It’s so easy to get all wrapped up in the things to do and the places to go and forget about what’s really important.  For me, that is spending time with those I love the most.  I plan on enjoying those special times like drinking hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies together.  And it won’t be too long before I start blaring the Christmas music too.  This season passes so quickly, so I’m really going to make it count.

MY OTHER RECIPES

And while we are having fun savoring the little moments this holiday, we will be eating this little pasta dish again too!  It was really a hit!  I love taking flavors from other dishes and creating new dishes with them.  Pasta is the perfect blank canvas to do that.  White chicken enchiladas have a white sour cream sauce and green chilies which really pair perfectly with pasta.  My kiddos are also all about pastas with a white sauce.  They loved it!  And no fear, if you are not a fan of cilantro or black olives, just leave them out and you still get an awesome flavored pasta!

    I love making delicious twists on meals, like enchilada with pasta! I love that you used a white sauce on this instead of the regular red enchilada sauce! I hope I can try it soon!

  • Fia Marquis


    We just tried this for supper (with added corn and black beans, because my husband goes crazy for anything vaguely Tex-Mex with corn and black beans added) and it was a hit!

  • Cathy Trochelman


    I LOVE white chicken enchiladas! Putting it with pasta = genius!

  • Flora


    We had this for dinner this evening, very good, makes a lot. Thank you keep the good recipes coming.

  • Krystal


    What exactly is creole seasoning? Would it change the flavor a lot if left out?

    • Jaren @ Diary of a Recipe Collector


      Hi Krystal! Creole seasoning is a mixture of spices. It has salt, red pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. In some areas, you might find “seasoned salt.” If you don’t have access to this or don’t want to purchase it, you can just use salt and pepper to season. Thanks!!
