This year it's even easier to score big at your next party thanks to Progresso Recipe Starters. With plenty of recipe ideas for different game day snacks, Progresso Recipe Starters will make sure you have a crowd-pleasing performance as it ends up being your favorite teammate.

Progresso Recipe Starters

A simple start to a wide variety of delicious dishes, Progresso Recipe Starters make it fast and easy to whip up something that your whole family is sure to enjoy. Available in Creamy Parmesan Basil, Creamy Portabella Mushroom, Creamy Roasted Garlic, Creamy Three Cheese and Fire Roasted Tomato varieties, the most difficult part is deciding which one to bring home.

Why not kick off your next game day with one of these tasty options?

Bacon Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
Bacon Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms using the Creamy Portabella Mushroom Progresso Recipe Starters. Creamy and highly indulgent, this smooth sauce is rich with sautéed Portabella mushrooms, giving you any easy way to start delicious dishes like Cheesy-Mushroom Joes and Mushroom-Swiss Burgers.

Chicken And Ham Slab Sandwiches using the Creamy Parmesan Basil Progresso Recipe Starters. This creamy, full-bodied and indulgent sauce that was inspired by alfredo and creamy pesto sauces can be used to make dishes such as Pizza Primavera and Slow Cooker Lasagna Alfredo.

Easy White Chicken Chili using the Creamy Roasted Garlic Progresso Recipe Starters. With caramelized, roasted chicken broth, garlic and a touch of cream, this stock is perfect for dishes such as Cheesy Turkey Sandwiches, Chicken Enchiladas and Green Chiles Chicken Quesadillas.

Chorizo Con Queso using the Creamy Three Cheese Progresso Recipe Starters. Rich and creamy with a blend of yellow and white cheeses, chicken stock, onion, garlic and cracked pepper, this flavor will satisfy cheese lovers with Easy Weeknight Bacon Mac & Cheese and Cheddar-Parmesan Puffs with Dipping Sauces.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches using the Fire Roasted Tomato Progresso Recipe Starters. A medium-thick tomato sauce, accompanied by flavors of roasted, caramelized tomatoes, oregano and bell peppers, which can be used as a great way to begin creating Buffalo Chicken-Potato Bake, Saucy Meatball Hoagies and Zesty Turkey Tacos.

When a 10 Piece Cheese & Appetizer Set and a can of Creamy Roasted Garlic Progresso Recipe Starters arrived, I was ready to see just how easy and delicious our next football Sunday would be.

appetizer set

While all of the recipes that Progresso suggested with their Creamy Roasted Garlic Progresso Recipe Starters sounded tasty, once I came across the Roasted Garlic Chicken Penne, I knew that my pasta-loving family would be excited to give it a try.

Ingredients

8 oz uncooked penne pasta
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 package (1¼ lb) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
2 cups broccoli florets
½ cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)
¼ cup chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
1 can (18 oz) Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Roasted Garlic with Chicken Stock cooking sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Directions

Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.

In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and the garlic over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is no longer pink in center.

Add broccoli, roasted peppers and basil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add pasta, cooking sauce and red wine vinegar. Cook and toss about 1 minute or until completely heated through.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Penne

Overall, I was so impressed that the cooking process was extremely easy and that the results were so tasty! I'm looking forward to picking up more of the Progresso Recipe Starters to see what other dishes we can add to our weekly menu as well as our game day fun!

Be sure to keep a lookout for these yummy cans of tastiness the next time you are at the grocery store - and print out this coupon for 65¢ off and take advantage of a savings at the same time!
