Recipe FAQs

Can I Use a different pasta?

Though rigatoni is my favorite choice of pasta for this recipe, you can substitute rotini or penne pasta.

What kind of sun-dried tomatoes should I use?

Any canned sun-dried tomatoes in oil will work. Be sure it is canned, and you aren’t using the dry tomatoes. Dry tomatoes will be hard and unpleasant.

What kind of mushrooms are best?

For this recipe, we used white mushrooms. However, portabello mushrooms also work wonderfully and give the pasta more flavor!

Can I reheat the creamy chicken pasta?

This chicken pasta is great if served as leftovers. Melt butter in a skillet and reheat the pasta. If the pasta is too dry, you may need to add some heavy whipping cream and seasoning.
