Ingredients

Place pasta and chicken on a platter and top with every last drop of sauce. Generously sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over the top.

Fine, but took much longer to make than the listed times (particularly the chicken cooking part) and no one was terribly excited by it. Not worth the calories.

Yummy! I think I may have used too much chicken broth (about a cup), which thinned out the sauce. Still, it came out great and my husband liked it (despite his usual disdain for mushrooms).
