Recipe For Chicken And Mushroom Pasta

This recipe for Chicken And Mushroom Pasta is to continue with the Tandy Tuesday theme of a pasta dish on a Tuesday. This simple and easy pasta dish is sure to be a winner. I used up some left over roast chicken so there was very little actual cooking to do. Chicken has become one of those proteins we eat most often. It is relatively inexpensive and freezes well. To that end I will go to our local chicken farm and purchase freshly slaughtered birds. Another ingredient you will always find in my fridge is mushrooms. In summer I buy whole button or porcini mushrooms and in the winter months when we tend to eat more sauces I buy presliced mushrooms which are cheaper.
