Creamy Smoked Paprika Tomato Chicken Pasta

I have finally found it...

A creamy and healthy chicken pasta that I can deemed as "guilt free"

Looking at my "free" copy of cheese cook book called "Simply Heaven", I came across this recipe that appears really simple to cook-not to mention slightly healthier than other cream version of pastas. The trick? is to use really light cream cheese. 

I tweaked quite a few things and came up with this version-most of the changes is that I added in quite abit of veges in it.

Creamy  Smoked Paprika Tomato Chicken Pasta  
4 chicken fillets (I cut mine i smaller pieces)
1 onion chopped 
1tsp of garlic
1 tablespoon of flour
4 tsp of smoked paprika
1 can of chopped tomatoes
125 grams of very light cream cheese
2 cup of chopped mushrooms
2 carrots chopped
1 fresh tomato chopped
pasta cooked

Saute garlic and onion. Coat chicken with flour  and pan fry it. Add in some water and tomatoes, Season with paprika and salt/pepper. Whisk cream cheese with fork and then add to sauce. Simmer for 2-3 minutes and add veges. Serve on pasta.

Excellent idea. Thanks so much for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights. This week I'm still pastaless - South Beach Dieting, but this one will definitely be on my list for the next phase.

I think the only time I've ever used paprika in pasta was on mac and cheese! This looks like a super flavorful dish!

Cream cheese, smoked paprika, mushrooms and chicken sounds like an amazing flavour combination!
