Recipe by msmichelle4

I found this recipe years ago and it instantly became my husband's favorite. I make it so much that I now do it by memory and with my own style and touch. Caution--it's addicting!

This was pretty good. I used chicken tenderloins, fat free half&half and brown bella mushrooms, along with whole wheat penne. I liked that it could be made easily on a busy night and served generous portions. MERP'd for All New Zaar Cookbook Tag.
