Chicken and shiitake mushrooms simmered in a rich cream sauce and tossed with bowtie pasta.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 12 shiitake mushrooms
- 1 cup heavy cream
- salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken until no longer pink, and juices run clear. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and thinly slice; set aside. Saute onion until tender and translucent. Add mushrooms, and gradually stir in cream. Cook, stirring constantly, for 7 to 10 minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Stir in chicken, and season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until heated through. Toss with cooked pasta until evenly coated.
