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 love pasta like there’s no tomorrow.  That’s not such a great thing, I guess… but when it’s made with delicious ingredients, who can resist??  This Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine is one of our favorite dishes to make for dinner.

My husband and I happily gobble up every bite of this pasta when we make it for dinner.  My son refuses to eat mushrooms, so he’s not into this one.  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 you’re a mushroom lover, then this Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine dish is for you.  And if you’re not a mushroom lover, you can certainly push them aside or leave them out.

    We weren’t pasta lovers until we tried this recipe! I sometimes cook it exactly how the recipe says and sometimes I add lees chicken but include some smoked bacon and onion and then I don’t use any oil or Parmesan. Both ways are absolutely delicious!
