One Dish Chicken Pasta Recipe

I am constantly looking for new recipes, things I think my family will enjoy. Last week I tried a new recipe I found online. It appealed to me for several reasons. It was a one dish meal and it contained pasta and mushrooms, two of my favorites.

My oldest granddaughter was over and she went with me to the grocery store. Then she helped me carry in the groceries and start the meal.

As you can see, it turned out well and Abby, my granddaughter, was happy to help me show it off!

  1. 1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Remove from Dutch oven.
  2. 2. Melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter in Dutch oven over low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.
  3. 3. Stir chicken, sautéed vegetables, and hot cooked pasta into sauce. Add cheese, pepper, and salt. Serve with desired toppings.

I left off the parsley and almonds. I loved this recipe and will definitely make it again!
