Creamy Parmesan Pasta with Chicken & Mushrooms ~ #SundaySupper
This week I have the pleasure of working with Land O Lakes® to create a simple dish full of flavor using their new Sauté Express® Sauté Starter kits for #SundaySupper.
What’s a Sauté Express® Sauté Starter kit? I’m glad you asked. I like to call it convenience in a packet. It combines everything you need to start whipping up dinner in a flash: olive oil, butter, herbs, spices, and garlic. It’s a one stop trip to flavor town.
Land O Lakes® understands that life can get a bit hectic, so they took the busy chef into consideration when they created their new Sauté Express® Sauté Starter kits. Late meeting at work? After-school activities with the kids? Gym? No worries, Land O Lakes® has you covered.
I’m all too familiar with how busy life can get; I work a full-time job, go to school, run a blog, and go to the gym every week. My active schedule requires simple, no-fuss meals during the week. Simple doesn’t have to mean flavorless, which is where Land O Lakes® comes in. They’re Sauté Express® Sauté Starter kits are full of fresh flavors just waiting to enhance your weeknight meals.
The Sauté Express® Sauté Starter kit comes in four delicious flavors:
My favorite go-to ingredient for simple weeknight meals is pasta. It’s quick and extremely versatile. I decided to make a creamy parmesan pasta with chicken & mushrooms that only takes 30-minutes from start to finish.
I decided to use the garlic and herb kit for this recipe. It added a huge boost of flavor and complemented my sauce perfectly. As soon as you unwrap the butter packet, you’re instantly hit with the aromas of fresh garlic and chopped herbs.
This pasta is so GOOD! The creamy sauce is full of fresh parmesan, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, hearty chunks of moist chicken, and sliced mushrooms.
I love that this dish can be prepared in less than 30-minutes; it’s perfect for the busy chef. This may be a quick, weeknight meal, but it doesn’t lack in the flavor department. You get all the flavor from this dish as you would a slow-cooked, gourmet meal.
