Pasta with Chicken and Mushrooms

Make this recipe with a pasta (try the mushroom) from Pappardelle’s Pasta and you have added another depth of flavor.  River Valley Ranch has your mushrooms and, the Parmesan from the Cheese People is over the top.  Serve it with a glass of red from Glunz Family Winery to make great dinner for summer entertaining.
