Chicken Philly Pasta

This recipe came about because I wanted a Chicken Philly, but I was out of french bread or rolls. I definitely didn't feel like going to the store so I just turned the recipe into a pasta dish. The sauce was inspired by my Spinach Artichoke Dip found in the When I Dip, You Dip section. Enjoy having a cream white sauce without having to use Heavy Cream! Have fun and be creative in the kitchen. Please don't be afraid to take chances. I hope you guys enjoy this dish!
