"A tasty mix of chicken, garlic, mushrooms, prosciutto and pasta are complemented by a thin but flavorful Asiago cream sauce."

Original recipe yield: 6 servings.

"A very good pasta dish that the entire family liked. However, I did modify the recipe a bit. I substitued home-made fresh pasta, used left-over roasted chicken, replaced the chicken bouillon with close to a teaspoon of chicken base, used a full cup of asiago, added a bit more prosciutto and garlic, increased the amount of mushrooms to about a cup of wild mushrooms, and added a couple healthy grinds of black pepper along with a good pinch of red pepper flakes. Well...I sorta followed the recipe."

Preparation

DIRECTIONS:

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken cubes, reducing heat if necessary, until no longer pink in center and juices run clear. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups cream to a simmer, stirring often. Whisk in bouillon and cheese until well blended and bouillon has dissolved completely. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water, and whisk into mixture. Cook and stir 2 minutes more, then remove from heat and set aside.

Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Stir in prosciutto, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Add chicken, reduce heat, and continue cooking until chicken is heated through. Return sauce to the stove and add remaining 1/4 cup cream and parsley flakes. Heat through.

To serve, place pasta in a large mixing or serving bowl. Add chicken and mushroom mixture and pour in cream sauce. Toss well, and serve.

Notes

Really good dish. I have made it 2 times. I am going to try to add more garlic to it and maybe some pepper next time. It's just slightly bland.

Would add more garlic and add shallots.

Very tasty, although being a home cook, I found this recipe somewhat difficult to prepare. It all turned out good though, just time consuming.

Our local grocery was out of prosciutto so I subbed in pepperoni. It added a bit of extra kick but looking forward to trying it with the intended ingredients. This is very rich indeed, and my kids love it!

Wow this was very good! I did tweak it slightly by adding green pepper and onion with the chicken and instead of the 1/4 cup cream at the end I did 1/4 cup sour cream to make the sauce thicker. Served with shredded Parmesan cheese on top. Oh and I substituted ham for prosciutto, our grocer does not carry it.

This was so good! The kids ate it really well and my husband and mom said it was like a restaurant.

Very good! Very similar to Carino's Chicken Bow Tie Festival. Used bacon instead of prosciutto.
