Spaghetti with Zucchini, Mushroom and Chicken

During the busy week I managed to throw together a  tasty pasta dish packed with protein,  healthy fresh vegetables and some cheesy pasta.  This dish is really easy to throw together and it can be modified to your liking!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 package chicken tenders, cut thin and bite sized
  • 1/2 package baby bella mushrooms
  • Garlic (2-3 cloves)
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat milk
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2lb whole wheat angel hair pasta
  • Fresh grated parmesan Cheese (few tablespoons)
  • Fresh grated gruyere
  • White wine (half a cup)
  • Fresh parsley
  • Salt & pepper

Directions:   

  • Put a pot of boiling water on. You will cook pasta until al dente.
  • Slice up your mushrooms and zucchini very thin so it will go well with the angel hair pasta.
  • Saute garlic, mushrooms, zucchini and chicken in olive oil on medium-high.  Season with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.  After a few minutes add the white wine and let reduce.  (If you want, here would be a good time to add a tablespoon of butter. I didn’t but it sure would add some more flavor.)
  • Add the milk and turn the heat down to very low.  Grate in the cheese (as much as you want to make it nice and creamy!)
  • When the pasta is done add it to your saute pan to let it absorb the flavors of your sauce and mix it together well.
  • Serve topped with some more parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley (or basil).
