Updated: Aug 1, 2021

Sometimes I feel lazy and don't want to cook complicated stuff! I want the night off but dinner still needs to be put on the table. That's when those 30 minute meals come in so handy. This is one of them. This creamy chicken and mushroom pasta is a great dish for when laziness takes hold or when you need some comfort food. This pasta is perfect! Creamy and rich, with a hint of spice from the chilli flakes I garnished it with.
