Pasta with Chicken, Peas, Mushrooms and Sun Dried Tomatoes

 

Pasta with chicken, peas, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes sautéed in a light creamy sauce is Mmm, Mmm GOOD!   A savory creamy pasta dish that is so easy,  we guarantee you and your family will LOVE!  


We love this pasta dish because it's an "all in one" meal with protein, carbs and vegetables. What could be better?

A hearty pasta dish with a creamy sauce like this absolutely deserves a full bodied wine to pair with.  We recommend a fine ruby-fruity red wine like the Monte Maria Sangiovese, or even a fine Chianti Reserva, both would be fantastic.  And, you only really need is a side salad with this dish and you have one fabulous meal! 

So simple and delicious, you 'll make this pasta dish in all seasons.  Heat up the leftovers the very next day for lunch is even better!  Yum!

Trust our mom .... she really knows how to whip up fabulous dishes.   Enjoy!
