• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. • Trim and thinly slice mushrooms. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Peel and mince or grate garlic.


• Once water is boiling, add cavatappi to pot. Cook until al dente, 9-11 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.


• Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil and 1 TBSP butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and softened, 2-3 minutes. • Push to one side of pan; add another drizzle of olive oil to empty side.


• While mushrooms cook, pat chicken* dry with paper towels and season all over with Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper. • Once mushrooms are browned and softened, add chicken to empty side of pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • Stir in scallion whites and garlic; cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


• Add cream sauce base and stock concentrate to pan. (TIP: Cut top off cream sauce carton to open fully; transfer contents using a spoon or spatula to scrape sauce from carton sides.) Stir to combine. • Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Season with salt and pepper.


• Add drained cavatappi, half the Parmesan, and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) to pan; toss to coat. If needed, stir in reserved pasta cooking water a splash at a time until pasta is coated in a creamy sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide between bowls; top with scallion greens and remaining Parmesan. Serve.
