Hi I'm Shea, and I’m a polished Southern belle. I adore food, and cooking is my therapy. There’s just about nothing I wouldn’t put a jalapeno on.

Author's Notes

Omit the chicken for a meat-free alternative.

Pasta water is starchy, and adding it helps to thicken your sauce and bind everything together.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Boil Farfalle Pasta (1 lb) according to package directions, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water before draining it.
step 2
Melt Unsalted Butter (3 Tbsp) over medium heat. Add Pecans (1 cup) and toss until brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and return the pan back to the stove.
step 3
Melt remaining butter in a pan, add Sliced Button Mushrooms (1 can) and sauté until tender.
step 4
Add Cream Cheese (1/2 cup), Rotisserie Chicken (1), Heavy Cream (1 cup), Grated Parmesan Cheese (3/4 cup), Cooking Sherry (2 Tbsp), Sea Salt (1 tsp), Ground Black Pepper (1 tsp), Dried Thyme (1 tsp), 1/4 cup of Lemons (2) and the reserved 1 cup of the pasta water. Simmer until thickened, about 5-7 minutes, stirring to make sure it doesn’t scald.
step 5
Add pasta and pecans, and toss to coat. Top with shredded Parmesan cheese and serve.
