Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said: Dairy is easy for breakfast or dessert, but what about dinner?  Cheese crusted, milk braised, cream sauced; think about ways to highlight dairy for dinner for National Dairy Month! 

This was a deliciously creamy pasta recipe, chock full of tender mushrooms, bites of chicken, and lots of tasty herbs! Butter, cream, and cheese are the dairy trifecta for beautiful creamy sauces that are velvety smooth and stick to your ribs filling. I love how versatile cream sauces are too - really any seasonings and cheeses can be mixed and matched to your hearts content.

I love how meals like this come together quickly as well - your sauce is made while the pasta is cooking, toss it all together and voila, dinner is served! Perfect for a busy work night dinner.

    16 ounces baby bella mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
