This is one of my 11 year olds favorite recipes. He got this recipe from one of the teachers at his school. It is a rich creamy chicken pasta dish.

Wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing. The first time I made it I simmered the sauce longer and it thickened up some. The second time I didn't have much time so I added a little cornstarch to the sauce and worked well. I love the flavor of this!! Will be making this again!!! Thanks again.
