I depend on this recipe when I get home late from work and my hungry family wants something delicious for dinner. It's quick, too, because it uses canned chicken and fresh mushrooms that I buy pre-sliced.

"I use 13.25 oz. whole wheat linguine, 2+ cups cooked chicken or pork, only 1 cup parmesan, and add up to another 1/2 cup milk at end with the parmesan. So Good! -Lori in WI."

"This recipe was so easy I really loved it. I have made this recipe several times for my boyfriend. One of the times I switched up the pasta by using bow ties instead of the fettuccine which turned out just as good."
