Thyme Chicken & Bowties

Image found here

This rich and hearty pasta dish is an easy and delicious twist on the classic Chicken Alfredo. We love it because the tyme gives it a really yummy flavor but it is still close enough to "Olive Garden sauce" that my kids will eat it. See for yourself, you won't be dissappointed.

Here is what you will need:

6 oz. bowtie pasta

1 T. butter

2 green onions

1 lb. chicken breast cut into chunks

1 t. thyme

1/2 t. garlic powder

2 C. whipping cream

3/4 C. shredded parmesan

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

3/4 C. fresh mushrooms (optional)

*I start boiling the water for the pasta before I

start my sauce so they are done about the same time.

*Mince onions and sautee with thyme in butter until soft.
*Add chicken and cook until white in the center.

*Pour in the cream, garlic, and salt and pepper.

*Stir together and add the cheese.

*Add sliced mushrooms if desired.

*Let simmer until sauce is thickened.

*Serve over or mix together with pasta

We ate this for dinner earlier this week and it was delicious. I felt like I had picked up dinner at Olive Garden. It was probably just as easy and definitely just as yummy!
