Creamy Italian Chicken

My friend with whom this recipe originated calls this Chicken Tetrazzini.  While it meets some of the criteria for a tetrazzini, ("chicken prepared in a cream sauce with mushrooms and served over pasta; usually topped with cheese") it's probably more descriptive to call it Creamy Italian Chicken.

You could certainly add mushrooms to this recipe (making it more tetrazzini-like), but honestly I haven't tried it.  The kids like it just fine as it is, and I'm afraid adding mushrooms may result in a mutiny.
