Number of Servings: 4


    2 chicken breasts
    8 oz dry whole wheat penne pasta
    1 cup half and half
    1 cup almond milk
    4 tablespoons crumbly Gorgonzola cheese
    3 cups white button mushrooms sliced
    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
    1 cup chopped red tomatoes


Pound chicken breasts until they are 1/2 inch thick. Season with salt and pepper. Sear chicken in a hot skillet with non-stick cooking spray over medium high heat. Cook on each side for about 4 to 5 minutes or until completely cooked. Remove chicken breasts from heat, and let rest for several minutes before slicing. You may need to spray additional cooking spray to the sauce pan to saute the mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms on medium heat until they are browned. While mushrooms are browning sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

Cook pasta according to instructions on the package. Prepare sauce by combining half and half, almond milk and Gorgonzola in a saucepan heating through. The sauce should thicken slightly. Slice chicken into 1/4 inch slices. Add sauteed mushrooms to the sauce, and stir to combine well. Plate pasta by adding 1/4 of the pasta, 1/4 of the chicken slices. Drizzle with sauce, and top with chopped tomatoes and shredded Parmesan.

While the calories seem high, this is a complete meal. It has pasta, dairy, meat and veggie.
