Very simple and tasty, I agree with duonyte, versatile, I nearly did add mushrooms but in the end made the recipe as was. Served over penne, this was a lovely dish with no leftovers, thank you MsPia! Made for PRMR tag game

What is very nice about this recipe is that you are likely to have the ingredients handy, especially if, like me, you use leftover chicken. I did not measure very precisely, and the recipe is quite flexible for variations. I used lovely fresh herbs from my garden. I had no cream at all, so used whole milk and a little cornstarch to thicken it, which worked very well. I served over rotini, just a preference. I did start the pasta first before starting the ragout - the pasta was cooked just a few minutes after the ragout was done. I think you could also add other things that are handy to the ragout - I think mushrooms would be especially nice. A great quick meal, which I am saving in my quick meals cookbook.
