Chicken & Mushroom Truffle Penne
with Garlicky Panko & Parmesan
Treat yourself to truffles with tonight’s ‘shroom-packed pasta. You’ll start with penne, which you’ll cook until tender, then toss in a silky, savory sauce of sautéed button mushrooms, garlic powder, mushroom stock, cream cheese, and Parmesan. A swirl of butter and dusting of truffle zest take the rich and umami flavors to the next level. Garnish everything with crunchy, garlicky panko, then pour yourself a glass of wine and toast to a restaurant-worthy dinner.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry produce. • Trim and quarter mushrooms (skip if your mushrooms are pre-sliced!). Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Dice tomato.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Wipe out pan.
• Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add panko; cook, stirring, until golden and toasted, 2-3 minutes. • Stir in half the garlic powder (you’ll use the rest later). Cook until just fragrant, 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat; transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out pan.
