Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, red pepper, onion and garlic; cook, stirring about 5 min until tender.

Sprinkle with flour and stir. Gradually whisk in milk then Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Stirring occasionally, bring to a boil. Add noodles; reduce heat to a low boil. Stirring constantly and around edges of pan, cook until pasta is tender, about 7 min.

Stir in chunks of Boursin®, then chicken, peas and parsley, stirring until chicken is hot and Boursin® is melted. Serve sprinkled with basil and Parmesan.


When washing mushrooms, don’t soak in water; simply wipe with a damp paper towel.

Get your kids to pull the meat off the chicken. Don’t forget to save the bones for soup stock too. Just freeze them until you’re ready to use.

Try Boursin® Cracked Black Pepper.
