3 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter
1 1/2 cups zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch
1/2 cup red bell pepper, cubed 1/2-inch
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3x1/2-inch strips
1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup milk
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups ) LAND O LAKES® Cheddar Cheese, cubed 1/2-inch


Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Keep warm.

Add cooked pasta and cheese. Serve immediately with sour cream, if desired.
