This is the same recipe I use. I got it out of our local newspaper many, many years ago. My recipe only calls for 1 lb. of chicken. I make my own fresh pasta and it is a delicious meal. Please try this one, you won't be disappointed. Update. I hadn't made this in a while and forgot how good it is. Will make again soon. I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream trying to reduce the fat. Still was great.
