Creamy Dill Chicken Pasta - quick weeknight dinner idea that a whole family will love!

I can't stop with the pasta dishes. They are just so easy and everyone loves them! It's easy to add seasonal flavors to them. In this one, I used dill. My very favorite herb. When I was little, my mom had bunches of it growing in our garden and it would often appear in her dishes. I love the fragrance of fresh dill. There is nothing like it!

I have a big bunch of dill and I have been using it for the past few days in almost everything I made. Except the fabulous rice krispies treats (recipe coming soon!). Because dill in a dessert? Well, let's just not go there. Anyhow, I've added it to a dip and added it to a a biscuit dough. Then this pasta dish happened. I even took a bunch and it's currently air-drying so I can have my homemade dried dill that I will put in a little spice jar.

As you can see, I am obsessed with dill.

    I can't wait until summer when I'll just be able to pluck some dill from the garden. It's definitely going on everything!
