Artichoke Mushroom Chicken Pasta

I saw this Artichoke Mushroom Chicken Pasta recipe over at Our Family Treat and it sounded perfect for dinner. We did change a few things, but I have included a link to the original recipe. I’m so glad that we tried this dish. It was a perfect pasta dish. We loved the sauteed veggies in it. I’m sure you could add whatever  you would like for the veggies and it would still come out delish!

Are Mushrooms Good For You?

Mushrooms have several healthy nutrients.

Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid.

These nutrients help protect heart health.

Riboflavin is good for red blood cells and Niacin helps keep the digestive system healthy and promotes healthy skin.

How Can You Tell Artichoke Is Done?

 You can tell when your artichoke is cooked by nimbly taking off a leaf.

If it falls off easily, it’s probably cooked.

Can You Eat Raw Zucchini?

Raw zucchini is great in salads, and can also be eaten with dips.
