Ingredients
  

  • 12 oz Jovial brown rice capellini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 5 oz shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cups peas, cooked
  • 1 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
  • parsley to top

Instructions
 

  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  • While the pasta ist cooking, heat olive oil over medium high heat, add chopped chicken. Brown it on all sides until just cooked, but don’t worry if it’s not super well cooked all the way through. It will be heated up again in the end.
  • Remove chicken into bowl and set aside.
  • Add the stick of butter, the mushrooms and the onions. Cook until soft.
  • Add the garlic and the cheese, let melt into sauce.
  • Add the peas and pre-cooked chicken. Stir.
  • Toss it all together with the cooked and draines pasta, adding a splash of reserved pasta sauce, if needed to make the sauce really come together. Toss well and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Notes

  • You could easily add another veggie like broccoli, which I ended up serving on the side of this pasta.
  • Instead of chicken breast, you could also use chopped boneless chicken thighs.
  • This recipe also works great for using up leftover rotisserie chicken. You can skip steps 2 and 3 just add the shredded chicken to the sauce right in the end (Step 6).
  • Cannot find shiitake mushrooms? Portobello, button or oyster mushrooms also work here.
  • Freshly grated pecorino is a total must here! It will really round out this dish, I promise! Don't skip on the quantities either.
