Chicken Dijon Pasta

1/2 pkg. (6 oz) gluten free pasta
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 can (6.5 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 onion, sliced
1/2 bell pepper, sliced
1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. thyme leaves
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions.  In a large skillet heat oil on med. high heat.  Add chicken and garlic.  Cook until lightly browned.  Add mushrooms, onion, pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, salt & pepper.  Saute until tender.  Stir in cream and mustard.  Toss in noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Serves 8

Martha:  As you can see, I've really taken a liking to the Dijon mustard!  This dish is original until you get to the cream and mustard which I added.  It didn't have quite enough taste.  Also the Parmesan cheese I used was Kraft's seasoned in a jar.  Delicious dish!!! And again, this would be good done with poultry, I have no doubt.
