  • 1 large skillet
  • 1 pasta pot


  • 1 lb Rigatoni pasta or any tubular pasta
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 whole shallot peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 lb chicken breast cutlets chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 lb Baby Portabella Mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup white or rose wine dry
  • 1/2 cup ripe roma tomato seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt kosher
  • 1/2 tsp pepper black, ground
  • 2 cups parmesan cheese* grated or finely shredded + extra for serving
  • 1/2 cup parsley Italian, leaves only, chopped


  • Cook pasta to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  • In a large skillet or dutch oven, on medium high, heat olive oil until glistening.
  • Saute shallots for about 3 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Add chicken and garlic and sauté for about 10 minutes and until chicken is cooked through and no pink remains.
  • Add a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Add sliced mushrooms, stir and cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add wine, tomato puree, fresh tomato, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Stir until fully combined and turn heat to medium low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • After ten minutes, stir in parmesan cheese* and stir until fully melted.
  • Add 1/2 cup of pasta water and stir more if needed. The pasta water will thicken the sauce but the sauce overall will still be on the thinner side.
  • Toss sauce into pasta in pasta pot and gently toss until the pasta is fully coated. You will notice the sauce thicken a bit more once it's being tossed into the hot pasta.
  • Serve with a little chopped parsley and more shredded, grated or sliced parmesan cheese.


*Use real parmesan cheese for this recipe.
