Artichoke Mushroom Chicken Pasta

I saw this Artichoke Mushroom Chicken Pasta recipe over at Our Family Treat and it sounded perfect for dinner. We did change a few things, but I have included a link to the original recipe. I’m so glad that we tried this dish. It was a perfect pasta dish. We loved the sauteed veggies in it. I’m sure you could add whatever  you would like for the veggies and it would still come out delish!

  • Fresh Parmesan, grated for garnish
  • 1 Pound Penne Pasta
Sauce
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

  • 1½ Cups parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
Pasta
  1. Saute chicken breasts in a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, salt and pepper, moving everything around the pan to keep the garlic from burning. Remove from heat when the chicken is almost cooked through.
  2. Saute veggies in a pan and then combine chicken and veggies and keep on low heat while you are cooking your pasta.
Sauce
  1. Saute garlic in the butter. Whisk in flour until it forms a ball and continue to whisk for 30 seconds to 1 min. Slowly whisk in milk and cream. Bring to a boil, continuing to whisk for 1 min and turn down to low.
  2. Add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and parsley flakes. Make sure to stir often. Continue to taste and season the sauce. Toss the pasta with chicken, sauce and veggies and serve.
