Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine

Here’s a delicious and easy pasta recipe:  Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine

Chicken and Mushroom Fettuccine

This is a comforting pasta dish full of hot fettuccine noodles that have been tossed in a light cream sauce with oodles of sauteed mushrooms and chicken.  My husband and I happily gobbled up every bite of this dinner.  My 13-year old is still refusing to eat mushrooms.  I’m thankful that he’s beginning to eat tomatoes… and that he’s fairly willing to try most other vegetables, but I just can’t get him to eat those darn mushrooms.  Oh well, more for me!  I keep telling him that someday he will LOVE mushrooms.  He does not believe me- ha!

    If I had to pick a dream pasta, it would be a creamy one full of mushrooms just like this. Your son is missing out! (My kids won’t eat them either.) Looks amazing!

    There is oodles of goodness in these noodles (had to!)  I recently learned that I actually LOVE mushrooms, so this dinner is totally what I am dreaming about going face-first into tonight! Pinned!

    I hated mushrooms until I was about 20, and now I can’t get enough. I’m sure your son will be inhaling this soon enough :) This is creamy, dreamy comfort food Lori (PS. I love your redesign too!)
