Quick and Easy Parmesan Pasta with Chicken

Here's a good way to give the kids something hot to eat while your cabinets are pretty bare AND you're trying not to heat up the kitchen.

Quick and Easy Parmesan Pasta with Chicken

Can of chicken
Package of pasta
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta (half a package to one can of chicken) according to package directions. While it's cooking open the can of chicken and drain. When the pasta is almost done, drain it and mix it with the chicken, butter, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese.

Top with extra Parmesan cheese.

This would be better with something to hold it together (preferably cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soup) but I didn't have any. It worked fine like this. My husband mixed some vinaigrette dressing up with his.

Umm... can you tell me something? What is a can of chicken? Does it contain a whole chunk of chicken? Is it pieces of chicken? Chicken mince? Does it have some sort of sauce? Is it cooked? Non-American minds want to know!
