Creamy pasta sauce with fresh mushrooms and spinach over chicken and fettuccine.
There is nothing like a pasta dish that makes my family happy to sit down to dinner! This pasta dish was a HUGE HIT with everyone.
It has a creamy pasta sauce made with cheese and cream, it’s filled with fresh mushrooms and spinach and served over fettuccine and chicken. It all came together in about 30 minutes, so it was perfect for a weeknight, but look at it — it would be perfect for a special occasion. We served it with some crusty bread, to mop up any sauce left on the plate. YUM!
