2 tablespoons garlic butter
1/2 cup frozen diced onions
1 (7.3-ounce) jar whole mushrooms (drained)
1 (16-ounce) bag frozen cavatelli pasta
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce

1. Fill large saucepan 1/2 full of water. Cover and bring to a boil on high for pasta. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place chicken on microwave-safe plate (may be paper). Microwave on DEFROST (30% power) 5 minutes or until chicken is defrosted.

4. Stir pasta into boiling water. Boil 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until tender.
5. Stir remaining ingredients into chicken. Reduce to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Drain pasta and return to pan. Stir chicken mixture into pasta and serve.

Aprons Advice

Pesto is made from basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, and cheese. Traditionally served tossed with pasta, it is also great as a rub for grilled meats and seafood.
