Creamy chicken masala pasta with mushrooms

This is another one-pot wonder from ‘Tasty’ and definitely one to try! I can’t emphasise enough how delicious it is and yet so easy. It’s a rich and creamy dish that you can cook all in one pot! (including the pasta) – just make sure it’s a good-sized to that you use.

We love pasta in our house and this one was a winner with everyone. The masala wine really adds a depth of flavour.

So – when you fancy something a little bit of indulgence but don’t want to be cooking all night long – make this your go-to dish. You won’t regret it!
