Mushroom Cream & Chicken Pasta with “La Dulce Vida” Carrots

Ready for comfort food with some bright carrots? (Is that really a question?). We made this last night for a family Valentine’s Day dinner. My was in town visiting and we had just come home from a wonderful museum tour (if you’re ever in Louisville, check out the Conrad-Caldwell Castle). It was a cold day, and by the time we got back we were all a little wiped from being on our feet. We (ok Shoe) whipped up this meal and it was a crowd pleaser. It’s also an easy meal to make vegetarian if you cut the chicken.
