Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken cubes, reducing heat if necessary, until no longer pink in center and juices run clear. Set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups cream to a simmer, stirring often. Whisk in bouillon and cheese until well blended and bouillon has dissolved completely. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water, and whisk into mixture. Cook and stir 2 minutes more, then remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Stir in prosciutto, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Add chicken, reduce heat, and continue cooking until chicken is heated through. Return sauce to the stove and add remaining 1/4 cup cream and parsley flakes. Heat through.
  5. To serve, place pasta in a large mixing or serving bowl. Add chicken and mushroom mixture and pour in cream sauce. Toss well, and serve.

This was restaurant quality, but I'd recommend a few changes: a small carton of cream is 2 cups so instead of buying a larger carton for just 1/4 cup more (a bit pricey and I'd rather not have leftover cream to cook w/ b/c of its high fat content) do not add all of the pasta; a whole bouillon is quite acceptable - who's really using 1/4 of it?! I didn't have prosciutto, but it really needs that flavor. I added peas and it completed the meal. Think ahead and reuse the same pots to make fewer dishes!

This was awful - recipe could be improved by halving the amount of pasta called for and quadrupling the mushrooms and ham. And can 1/4 a boullion cube possibly be right? I used a whole one and still the sauce was bland and uninteresting.

This is an awesome recipe! I'm one of those cooks who just can't leave a recipe alone, so I changed it up a bit. I saute`ed the chicken in olive oil, and added 2 minced fresh garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon dried sweet basil, and 1 teaspoon sea salt. For the sauce, I used 3 1/2 cups heavy cream, and added dried sweet basil, 1/2 chicken bouillon cube, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon real butter, and 1/2 cup chicken broth. I used a full cup Asiago cheese, and substitued bacon for the proscuitto. I also cooked the bacon, mushrooms, and fresh garlic in olive oil, rather than butter. My whole family loved this recipe! If you were to add capers and a sqeeze of fresh lemon juice, it would taste just like a favorite dish at a well known Italian Restaurant....which is what I plan to do next time!

Since my changes were only in the adjustment of quanity I still gave this recipe 5 stars. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking it. I also added more cheese and used an entire bullion cube to the sauce to add more flavor to it. I added more garlic when cooking the prosciutto. Also I felt that there was too much pasta for the amount of chicken/mushrooms & prosciutto that the recipe called for. I used 2 lbs of chicken, 1 cup of mushroom (next time I will make it 2 cups) and 1/2 cup of prosciutto. I was very excited when I saw this recipe and it reminded me of my favorite dish at the Macaroni Grill that they no longer carry. I recieved several compliments at dinner. Thank you for a great recipe!

Delicious! I used penne pasta and cut the amount in half. I didn't use chicken, I just doubled the amount of proscuitto. I also used 2 cups of mushrooms and added peas. This was so easy and quick to make but looks and tastes like you spent hours. UPDATE: This is the second time I've made this and this time I did it with the chicken. Definitely season the chicken with garlic, italian seasoning and a little salt and pepper while frying in a bit of olive oil. I still used 2 cups of mushrooms and 1 c. of peas along with a whole package of proscuitto so I doubled the sauce. I don't like a thin sauce so it was pretty easy to thicken with the cornstarch. Definitely a keeper.

Wow! This was very good! The original recipe needed a little kick so I added 1/2 tbsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. I used baby portabella mushrooms and added fresh spinach for color. I used the Asiago cheese and it definitely made the dish!

I tweeked the recipe a little. I added 1/2 C minced onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 C asiago cheese, 1 whole bouilon cube and seasoned the chicked with poultry seasoning prior to cooking. I also substituted 1/4 C milk for the cream, so I didn't have to buy 2 pints of cream. Next time I will add some vegetables to it. The recipe was a great base to start from.

This was great. I left out the mushrooms and doubled the cheese and proscuitto. Was just as good re-heated 2 days later. Thanks for the great recipe.
