2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup sliced stemmed fresh shiitake mushrooms (about 2 ounces)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/8 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

2 cups canned low-salt chicken broth

8 cups coarsely chopped trimmed escarole (about 1 large bunch)

2 cups medium pasta shells (about 5 ounces)

2 cups 3/4-inch pieces skinless roasted chicken

1/4 cup thinly sliced drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in large deep nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and stir 1 minute. Add broth and bring to boil. Stir in escarole; cover and cook 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until escarole is tender, stirring often, about 3 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain; return to pot. Add escarole mixture, chicken, and sun-dried tomatoes. Stir over medium heat until chicken is heated through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl; sprinkle with cheese.
