Increase the heat of the sauted chicken & mushrooms, add the cream, parmesan, salt and pepper to taste, simmer for about 4 mins then toss the pasta in; turn heat off.....and serve with your favorite salad!

My family liked it. I used fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden. I also used fresh garlic but didnt have as much as the recipe called for so I used garlic powder.

Mine came out a bit dry. Maybe i would saute the chicken a bit less and/or add more cream at the end.
