In The Kitchen: Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

Tonight's dinner was amazing!  Another Cooking Light recipe that I altered slightly to reflect items I already had in my refrigerator.

 2 cups Egg Noodles (I used No Yolks)
1/4 cup AP flour
2 cups fat free milk
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
3/4 cup shredded Mozzerella cheese
2 laughing cow light swiss wedges
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup sliced lean deli ham
salt and pepper to taste

Cook noodles according to package directions.  Pan sear chicken breasts in PAM spray with salt and pepper until cooked.  Dice cooked chicken and deli ham.  In a skillet, heat oil and add garlic until soft at medium  temperature.  Whisk in flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until smooth.  Take skillet off direct heat and whisk in milk, replace on low heat until sauce thickens; whisk in dijon mustard.  Add 2 cheese wedges and shredded cheese, stir until smooth.  Add peas, chicken, ham, and pepper to sauce.  Pour sauce over noodles and stir to combine.

Just wanted to share my favorite sweet treat.  I love packing one of these in my lunch box for a lunchtime dessert.  Nature Valley Granola Thins with a dark chocolate coating on the bottom - YUM!  R and I have been trying to shop sales and use coupons as part of a 2012 resolution and we lucked up on this item!
