Step 1

Bring large pot of salted water to a boil.

Step 2

Heat butter in large skillet and saute shallot until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and mushrooms to heat through, stirring occasionally, another few minutes. Add cream and cheese, season with salt and pepper, and keep warm over low heat.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Two minutes before pasta is done, add peas to pot. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup pasta cooking water.

Step 4

Add pasta and peas to skillet, toss to combine. If pasta looks dry, add reserved pasta cooking water. Serve warm, topped with additional cheese. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Simple, easy and good -- exactly what I wanted. I used rotisserie chicken I bought at the store, egg noodles and cheddar cheese but otherwise made as directed for a very good dinner. Thanks for sharing!
