i made this the other day and it was delicous , needs something to give it a kick but other then that it got 5 stars from the hubby


1 1/3
cups uncooked rosamarina (orzo) pasta (8 ounces)
2
tablespoons margarine or butter
3/4
pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2
pound mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
2
medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
2
tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1
cup milk
1/2
cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • 1 Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.

  • 2 While pasta is cooking, melt margarine in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook chicken, mushrooms, onions and garlic in margarine about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center.

  • 3 Stir in flour, thyme and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Gradually stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in cheese until melted.

  • 4 Pour chicken mixture over pasta; toss if desired.


i think ill add something spicy like tony's  ,it just needs a bit of a kick which could be that i used dried spice not fresh so i know that made a difference
