I know, this looks almost the same as the last post, but I promise it tastes totally different! Ironically, even though it has a few of the same ingredients, the texture and taste is just different. Either way, can you really ever go wrong with pasta and cheese? I think not!
I have been really bad about updating lately, which seems to happen more often than not. Although I cook almost every single day, I don't find the time to edit all the photos, upload the recipe and write everything out. I recently began a career in Real Estate and am still working at my marketing job until the 1st of November, so I have been putting most of my energy and time into that. This is my true passion and I love doing it, but does anyone read this? I thought when I started my blog almost 3 years ago that I would grow a larger following, which I did not. I suppose that is why I do not update often, because I am not sure anyone is actually reading this. I love sharing my recipes, so I will keep posting, I am just not sure how often. Any feedback in much appreciated! Now on to the recipe...
- 12oz box penne pasta
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp Greek seasoning
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 container of mushrooms (about 4 oz)
- 1/2 truffle cheese - if you don't have this, a sharp white cheddar or Gruyere will work as well!
- 1/4 cup Italian blend cheese
- 1/4 whipped cream cheese
- 1/2 cup pasta water*
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Bring a large salted pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Before draining pasta, reserve a 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken with Greek seasoning and add to the pan. Cook about 8 minutes, turning once until cooked through.
Add the garlic and mushrooms, cook an additional 4 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Add the cheeses, stirring to combine ingredients. Slowly add the pasta water until the mixture comes together and is super creamy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
