Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Update basic chicken pasta with garlic, flavourful sautéed mushrooms, white wine, and fresh parsley. Common button mushrooms are great in this recipe, but if you want to amp up the flavor or impress someone special, choose porcini, morel, oyster, or other wild mushrooms for your chicken and mushroom pasta.
