The original recipe is from Allrecipes.I have made changes to this and this is truly one of my favorite recipes!! With the calories this has, I hate to even say I like the Ronzoni smart taste or Dreamfield pasta !! Once you see the calories it's like " why bother "? But at least in my mind, I think I am doing myself a favor !!Daughter # 2 just called me yesterday for the recipe so she could make it for her sister's who are coming for dinner.

Oh, man, is this good!!! I cut the recipe in half and served this as a side dish with a simple grilled salmon, so I left out the chicken. I also left out mushrooms, just because I don't care for them much. I added about a cup of frozen peas, too. I didn't add that last cup of cream either because it already looked perfect. I did add just about 1/4 cup 2% milk to thin it out just a little before serving over bowtie pasta. Delicious! Thanks for posting!
