Presto Chicken and Mushroom Linguine

with Tenderstem and Cheese

Our mushroom and pancetta linguine is an elegant fresh pasta dish. But, in this instance, elegance doesn’t equal hassle. From pan to plate in just 20, this dish is perfect for weeknights. Pancetta, mushrooms and fresh asparagus are tossed in a devilishly creamy pasta sauce, made from creme fraiche, stock and Italian cheese. Salty, creamy and packed with fresh veggies, this recipe is hard to beat.
