chicken and mushroom pasta

This was really quick and easy, it kind of reminded me of a chicken stroganoff type of thing.
the kids scoffed it down, Grace doesn't always eat all of her tea but she did with this and even asked for more mushrooms!! This recipe served 2 adults and 2 small children (and there is enough for left overs- so would feed 4 adults)
You will need:
2 chicken breast cut into cubes or pieces
6-7 medium sized mushrooms sliced
1/2 brown onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
Tin of cream of mushroom soup (I used campbells)
1 chicken stock cube in 1/2 cup hot water
Salt and pepper for seasoning
1 teaspoon dried sage (or fresh if you have it)
2-3 handfuls of baby spinach chopped
3 tablespoons of thickened cream
handful of parsley chopped
parmesan cheese to serve on top
Heat some oil in a pan and cook chicken, when almost done add the garlic and onion
Add salt and pepper and sage
Add mushrooms and cook for a minute or so
Add soup and chicken stock and heat through
When its almost done cooking (reduce heat to simmer)add in the baby spinach to heat them and some of the cream and let it simmer for a few minutes.
Serve with your favourite pasta (my kids like the curly pasta)
Top with some parsley and parmesan cheese before serving
