Quick recipe that is pretty frugal too!

This is one of our family's favorite recipes - Kora even requested it for her birthday meal back in December. It's pretty budget friendly too! Serve with salad or roasted squash and rolls. YUM!

Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine

1 pkg (12-16 oz) fettuccine
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (NO CANNED)
4 garlic cloves (or 5 or 6)
1/4 C butter (better with about 6 T)
1-2 C cooked chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 C milk
1 1/3 C shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute mushrooms and garlic in butter for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and milk; cook for 5-7 minutes or until heated through. Drain fettuccine; add to skillet. Sprinkle with cheese and toss to coat.

This barely feeds our family - we have just one lunch serving left. Of course that could be due to several children getting multiple helpings. :-) If you have a bigger family than mine, double it.

Sounds good....we'll give it a try!

BTW, your Beef Enchiladas were GREAT! Yum Yum! Thank you!

I've never tried cream, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. :-)
