Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything seems to come all at once? It’s certainly been one of those around here. I feel barely able to sit down even for a few minutes. So I was pretty happy to have this pasta dish on hand for some tasty leftovers this week. Who doesn’t love a good pasta dish? To me there are very few things better than a big bowl of pasta, and this creamy, comforting chicken and mushroom penne bake is no exception.
The pasta bake uses fairly simple, rustic ingredients like mushrooms, garlic, cream, parsley, grated cheese and a Marsala wine sauce. The prosciutto is a perfect touch to elevate this simple dish to extraordinary status. If you want more of a mushroom flavor, you could use Portobello or porcini mushrooms. Oh, and the best part about this dish? You only dirty one pan and one baking dish. I call less dishes an added bonus.
