Chicken Gemelli with Mushrooms

This is a quick to prepare chicken pasta dinner that has nice eye appeal and delicate flavor. It is recommended to use Francis Coppola Gemelli pasta that can be purchased online at their wine website. If you are unable to buy Gemelli, then substitute a wide egg noodle pasta.  To buy the pasta you can visit Francis Coppola’s food website.  They have a lot of fine Italian foods to choose.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.
