Four kinds of fresh mushrooms make for a flavorful, hearty ragout with sauteed chicken. Try a mixture of any wild mushrooms, according to their availability.


  • 3.3 lb. Barilla Whole Grain Penne
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 lb. diced boneless chicken thighs
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 1 lb. sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 lb. sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 lb. sliced oyster mushrooms
  • 4 each sliced portabella mushrooms
  • 3 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

Saute the chicken in the oil until it is lightly browned. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Deglaze with the wine and reduce it completely. Add the mushrooms and saute them until they release their juices. Season with salt and pepper. Remove and set the sauce aside.

Step 3

For each serving, to order: Reheat 1 1/3 cups pasta in simmering water. Drain and add it to a pan with some of the sauce and 1/2 cup pasta cooking liquid. Bring everything to a simmer and plate. Garnish with 1/2 tsp. parsley and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan.
