Chicken Almost Carbonara
Like lots of others, right now I'm looking for ways to use leftovers and pantry items, to avoid extra trips to the grocery, and to save money. I had leftover cooked chicken and some mushrooms in the refrigerator that I needed to use. I had pasta in the pantry, but alas, no cream, so this dish kind of "grew like Topsy" with ingredients I already had on hand--a partial bottle of white wine, frozen peas, and parsley right outside the door. My son said, "Hey, this is almost like carbonara," and the name was born!
Any type of pasta you have on hand will be fine.
