Asiago Pasta Recipe

Here's the recipe that the boy's made for my MIL's birthday this past weekend.  It's healthy wonderful!!!

Ingredients
1 (16 ounce) package (bow tie) pasta
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast - cubed
2 1/4 cups heavy cream, divided
1/4 cube chicken bouillon, crumbled
3/4 cup grated Asiago cheese
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped prosciutto
1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 tablespoon parsley flakes [we used fresh]

Directions
1.Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and set aside.

2.Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken cubes, reducing heat if necessary, until no longer pink in center and juices run clear. Set aside.

3.In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups cream to a simmer, stirring often. Whisk in bouillon and cheese until well blended and bouillon has dissolved completely. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water, and whisk into mixture. Cook and stir 2 minutes more, then remove from heat and set aside.

4.Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Stir in prosciutto, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Add chicken, reduce heat, and continue cooking until chicken is heated through. Return sauce to the stove and add remaining 1/4 cup cream and parsley flakes. Heat through.

5.To serve, place pasta in a large mixing or serving bowl. Add chicken and mushroom mixture and pour in cream sauce. Toss well, and serve.
