WEMP free "Cheesy" Chicken Pasta

Chris whipped up an original creation tonight for Derek, and he LOVED it!

I tried it, and it wasn't bad...although I'm such a cheese lover, that it still wasn't the same for me, but since he doesn't seem to notice the difference, hopefully he'll never feel like he's missing out! It was a really nice change for him, since he can't generally have mac 'n cheese or anything like it!

The cheese didn't completely melt, but it melted enough to mix together with the pasta! :)
