Adding cream cheese to the final product takes this delicious dinner over the top!  I have come to the conclusion that cream cheese should be mandatory in every recipe.  The secret to keeping the ingredient list small for this 4 Ingredient Creamy Chicken Pasta Bake are these new Ragu Homestyle Pasta Sauces.  With it’s delicious bold flavor without artificial flavors, colors, or high fructose corn syrup you don’t need a bunch of seasonings to make this recipe pack a punch!
