This simple dish of Penne Alfredo with Chicken and Mushrooms might sound like a lot of work, but in fact, it is the easiest way to prepare a delicious original pasta sauce with a twist.
You guys have to know how much I love ANY pasta right.
This sauce that I created was really a combination of a few ingredients I had in my pantry. Chicken breasts, mushrooms, cream, parmesan cheese and one tin of cream of mushroom soup.
So here is where the Alfredo part comes in. Alfredo pasta sauce is an original pasta sauce that you will find at any Italian restaurant on the menu. It mainly consists of garlic, cream and butter, melted with grated parmesan and added to cooked pasta. However, you can add your own meat to the sauce that makes this versatile recipe a great meal.
I decided to add shredded chicken and mushrooms with my Alfredo sauce and serve it on cooked penne pasta and garnish with fresh dill. Why dill? Because it’s the only fresh herb I had! The result was magnificent.
This recipe of Penne Alfredo with Chicken and Mushrooms are a great dish to serve for a weekday meal. It is creamy and decadent yet filling and tasteful, and will surely get those tummies full in no time!
