Party Sandwich Pasta

We are an appetizer family, plain and simple. 

My favorite part of Christmas is that on Christmas Eve we spend the day making every appetizer our hearts desire and chowing down that evening. 

One of our long time favorite Christmas Eve snacks is Party Sandwiches, you know those lovely sweet rolls with ham and Swiss cheese. Covered in melted butter with Dijon and Poppy Seeds. They're to die for. 


In coming up with a recipe for the Tresomega Organics for Life recipe challenge I decided to turn our favorite appetizer into a quick and easy week night meal. 

If any of your have been around this blog for any amount of time you know that my hubby is hard to please. 

I was pleasantly surprised when he said he loved this dish! 




This creamy dish is made with gluten free quinoa and rice pasta and topped with our favorite grilled chicken. However, you could easily use any other meat you choose. Or go entirely meat free with this!
