This Chicken and Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta is absolutely deelicious!
It is made with white mushrooms, whole chicken breasts and fresh parsley.
Which comes in a creamy sauce that is sure to make enhance the flavor of the pappardelle noodles.
pasta has large flat type noodles, similar to fettuccine and originates from Tuscany.
I wanted to create a romantic dinner recipe for Valentine’s day that is coming up.
And knew right away that this pasta would do the trick.
This versatile dish is so quick and easy to make and can really can be served on any day.
Last year, we went out for Valentines day.
It cost us a lot and that is because Valentine’s day is one of the most busiest dining nights out of the year.
So of course they are going to charge more, make sense right?
Why not make this instead and serve it alongside a bottle of wine, you could save a lot of money and traffic dining in this night.
Plus you can have a fancy dining experience for two for under $40 dollars.
Oh and expect leftovers because this pasta makes a few bowls 😉
I like to make meal preps with my leftovers. They freeze well too!
If you’re looking for a vegetarian dish for tonight’s dinner? Feel free to omit the chicken and just use mushrooms.
You can also add in some spinach if you’d like to replace the chicken!
Also this recipe can also be made vegan as well.
However you would want to replace the butter, parmesan cheese and whole milk with those vegan substitutes of course.
And of course you can use “gluten free” pasta if your on such a diet.
So really there is no excuse to not indulging once in a while in such an amazing dish.
To make this dish all you will need is one large cooking pot, what can be easier than that.
Since pappardelle pasta noodles are not very starchy it’s okay to throw them in dring the last phases of cooking.
If you are using another heavy pasta, then you may want to pre cook the pasta then through it in at the end instead.
Squeeze the juice from a lemon overtop before serving and you will be in pasta heaven… Bone appetit!
Looking for a NEW MEAL PREP option for the week. This recipe is perfect for that 🙂
