Pasta Milano

If you are looking for a simple delicious Italian dish that rivals one that you can get at a restaurant this is your recipe!! I had not made it for some time and wow had forgotten how good it is! We had some people over for dinner and everyone had seconds, some had thirds!! Good thing I doubled the recipe.
Pasta Milano
12 oz uncooked bowtie (farfalle) pasta
Sauce
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup sliced mushrooms (more or less)
1/4 cup diced onions
1 1/2 cups half & half
1 packet (1.6 oz.) Knorr Garlic Herb sauce mix
1 package bacon cooked crisp and broken into small pieces.
2 cups cooked and diced chicken breast.
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking: Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in a large skillet on medium heat.  Add mushrooms and onions. Saute 5 minutes or until tender.  Remove from pan.
Add half & half and sauce mix to the skillet.
Stir to blend.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce head and simmer 3 minutes or until thickened. 
Stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons butter, the mushroom/onion mixture, chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and parmesan cheese.  Cook stirring for 1 minute or until heated through. 
Drain pasta reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.  Return pasta to the pot; add the sauce and cooking water. Toss to mix.
Here's what the sauce mix looks like.  I found it at Winco.
This pasta was so DELICIOUS!!
YUM!!

  3. Oh yeah, this looks delicious and what I'd call Friday Comfort Food. I'd have to make my own sauce because of headache issues, but other than that, looks great!
