This chicken and mushroom pasta is decadent! Use whole wheat noodles to add whole grains and fiber. Serve with a fresh green salad.
Ingredients:
2-2/3 cups dried rigatoni pasta (or other similar tube-shaped pasta)
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
12 ounces skinless and boneless chicken cut into bite-sized pieces
3 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
3 cups white button mushrooms, sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, shredded
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Directions:
1 Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and set aside.
2 Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the black pepper on chicken then cook for about 5 minutes or until center of chicken is no longer pink.
3 Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm. Add remainder oil to skillet then add garlic, mushrooms and onions. Stirfry until until onions are just tender.
4 Pour in broth and wine then bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until liquid is reduced to about half, stirring occassionally (about 5-10 minutes.)
5 Remove skillet from heat then add the pasta, cooked chicken, tomatoes, basil and oregano then toss to coat evenly.
6 Serve on a platter sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
