Mushroom Chicken Marinara Sauce with Gemelli Pasta
8ouncespastaI used gemelli noodles, angel hair would be great as well
1large or 2 small garlic clovesminced
Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
2cupschickencooked and diced
1quartFive Minute Marinara Saucethis can be made in advance and then just kept in a jar in the refrigerator until needed.
Cook the pasta, drain and set aside. In a large skillet, over medium heat, warm the oil and then add the garlic. Saute for just a minute or so, until fragrant, but not browned. Add the sliced mushrooms and cover for just 3-4 minutes (this just speeds the cooking - feel free to leave them uncovered if that is simpler for you). Uncover, stir and saute until they are browned and tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Total cooking time for mushrooms was about 8-10 minutes.
When the mushrooms are tender, add the cooked chicken and cover with a lid for a few minutes, just until warm. Toss gently, to avoid shredding the already cooked chicken. When the chicken is warm, add the marinara sauce. Stir gently to combine and then let it warm over medium heat for a few minutes, just until the sauce is hot.
Warm the pasta in a strainer under hot running water for just a minute. Serve the pasta topped with the hot Mushroom Chicken Marinara Sauce. Enjoy!
