Chicken and Mushroom Rigatoni with Blush Sauce

Treat yourself and your family to a hearty bowl of chicken and mushroom rigatoni, a tasty dinner option well suited for busy weekdays or casual weekends. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are roasted with quartered cremini mushrooms, seasoned with oodles of fresh, minced garlic. While the mushrooms and chicken roast, the marinara sauce is simultaneously simmered with tangy sun-dried tomatoes. To finish, dollops of cream cheese are whisked into the marinara sauce, creating a satisfyingly creamy finish.

Would this be dry sundried tomatoes or the ones packed in oil?

Hi Evelyn, Patterson used dry (not packed in oil), but either would work for this recipe.

Looks like a great recipe! I don’t mean to be nitpicky, but this recipe says “Place pans in your Suvie, input settings, and cook now.” Is there a reason this recipe couldn’t be scheduled? I wouldn’t want to mess it up if there’s a reason why scheduling it for several hours out would cause a problem. Thanks in advance.
