Fusilli with Chicken and Tomato Sauce
This recipe was really a no brainer in the sense that how could homemade tomato sauce and roasted chicken be bad? Fusilli with Chicken and Tomato Sauce was incredibly simple to make. Make sure you don't forget to reserve that pasta water! It makes any sauce better. :-) The only thing that tripped me up in this recipe was the mozzarella cheese. The description calls for "6 oz. mozzarella, diced (1 1/2 cups)" but doesn't say whether it is fresh mozzarella or regular mozzarella. I went with the fresh and honestly it didn't do the fresh mozzarella justice. It became very melty and stringy and not really worth the effort. Save the money and buy regular! I'll be making this recipe again sometime this week without the fresh mozz so hopefully I will see a difference. We really enjoyed this recipe and we will definitely be making it again.
