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.
