Pasta, chicken and sauce! Oh MY!

There is always more than one way to make a dish.  If you have the time you can create some faboo sauces from scratch, or you can buy some pre-made sauces.  Tonight I'm making cheesy garlic chicken pasta.  And I have a great recipe for the sauce.  Or you can do as I'm doing, and just get Ragu's Cheesy Roasted Garlic Parmesan sauce.

Decide on what type of pasta you want to make with this, and get your pot of water boiling and your pasta cooking!

Get out thawed chicken, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes.  Slice the chicken into strips.  And then slice your mushrooms unless they came pre-sliced. 

And of course, use separate cutting boards and knives, and wash your hands with hot water and soap after you touch the chicken! 

Toss these together in a nice pan with some hot olive oil.

Make sure the chicken is totally cooked!  Then remove the chicken and mushrooms from the pan, and set aside.  At this point is when you would make the sauce from scratch if you wanted.  OR you can just dump the sauce into the pan and heat over medium until it is heated through!

Now you can take the cherry tomatoes and quarter them.

Put the chicken and mushrooms into the sauce, and make sure everything is thoroughly heated and mixed.  Serve over the noodles!
