Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Bell Pepper Pasta

Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Bell Pepper Pasta

Pasta is such a versatile ingredient, you can just toss just about any saucy dish on it which turns it a complete meal, like this post today. The sauce was inspired from my mom’s Chicken ala King recipe, I just removed the starchy element that makes it thick instead we reduced the liquid and use parmesan cheese and the starch from the freshly cooked pasta go give body to the sauce.

How about you do you have any dishes that you sometimes use with pasta? If you do please share it below.
