Weeknight cheesy pasta skillet

My Friend Michelle has this wonderful idea! She is calling it SAMM (Share a Meal Monday). Every monday you post a meal that you had the previous week. Then when it's almost supper time, and you can't think of anything to make...just hop on over and check out all the yummy meals!! I'm really excited about this!

So here it is, my first SAMM!

weeknight cheesy pasta skillet
what you need:
3 cups rotinit pasta, uncooked
1.5 LBS boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
3 cups frozen mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots,) thawed and drained
1 cup salsa
2.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever kind of cheese you feel like using)

make it:
Cook pasta as directed on package. Meanwhile, cook and stir chicken in large non-stick skillet on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until chicken is done.
Add vegetables and salsa, cook on medium heat for 3 minutes or until heated through.
Drain pasta, add to skillet with cheese, stir until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

(This particular time we just added the cheese on top instead of mixing it in the whole dish)
