Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoon(s) butter, plus more for baking dishes
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 pound(s) penne rigate
  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves halved, horizontally
  • 1/2 cup(s) plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 6 cup(s) whole milk
  • 10 ounce(s) white or cremini mushrooms, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup(s) sliced oil packed sun dried tomatoes, drained
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) shredded provolone
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) freshly grated parmesan

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Butter two shallow 2-quart baking dishes. If you’re going to freeze one, use a disposable foil pan. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta 3 minutes short of al dente; drain pasta and set aside.
  2. 2. While pasta is boiling, heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Season chicken with salt and pepper; cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Halve each piece lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. While chicken pan is still hot, toss the mushrooms in and saute until golden brown (3-4 minutes). Use a little extra olive oil if needed.(Since I used left over chicken, I just cooked the mushrooms in the olive oil)
  3. 3. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy pot , melt butter over medium. Add flour and garlic; cook, whisking, 1 minute. While whisking constantly, gradually add milk; bring to a simmer. Keep whisking frequently as sauce thickens, about 1 minute more. Add mushrooms and tomatoes; cook 1 minute. Take the pan off the heat and and gradually stir in provolone and 1/2 cup Parmesan.
  4. 4. Add chicken and pasta to pot; season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide pasta mixture between baking dishes. If freezing, place remaining parmesan cheese in a zip-top baggie. If cooking, sprinkle on top.
  5. 5. Bake, uncovered, until top is golden and bubbling, about 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
