I totally feel the same way sometimes. Even though I am a food blogger and I love to cook, every now and then I just need something quick and easy to throw together at meal time.

I discovered these new Barilla® Pronto™ pastas at my local grocery store. I immediately picked up a few versions, perfect for weeknight meals!

I love making new pasta dishes because they always come out hearty and delicious! I think it’s really fun to experiment with new flavors for pasta too. They don’t always have to be a typical Italian dish.

With the new Barilla® Pronto™ in Spaghetti I created today’s fun and yummy recipe for BBQ Chicken Pasta! What’s great about these Pronto™ pastas is you can throw together a whole meal in one pan with no pre-boiling or draining of water! Super easy for cooking and clean up!

My inspiration for today’s dish comes from one of my favorite pizzas; BBQ Chicken Pizza! This has come to be a classic combination. The main ingredients for the pizza (and today’s pasta!) are chicken, BBQ sauce, cheese, cilantro and red onions.

Put all those flavors together with Pronto™ pasta and you have one unique and delicious meal!

YUM!!! I personally like this with a small amount of BBQ sauce, so this isn’t a very saucy dish per the directions. Feel free to add more if you prefer it!

This is so easy, I really enjoyed cooking with Barilla® Pronto™, there are so many possibilities with these pastas! They have a lot of recipes already on their website.

Using pre-cooked rotisserie chicken makes this dish so much easier. You can also use left over baked chicken as well!
