The classic flavors of a Swiss fondue combine to make a cheesy chicken, ham and mushroom pasta -- no fondue pot necessary.
8 ounces bowtie pasta, cooked to package directions
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup finely chopped onion
2 cups sliced white mushrooms
1/2 cup dry white wine (Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons kirsch (cherry brandy), optional
3 cups milk
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 cloves roasted garlic, mashed into a paste (see method below)
3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup diced ham
2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Tip: To Roast Garlic: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice half an inch off the top of the garlic head, exposing the individual cloves. Rub a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil over the top of the cloves. Seal the garlic in loosely wrapped foil and place in the oven. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until all cloves are soft. Remove to let cool.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Set onion aside. In the same saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter with 1 tablespoon of oil. Saute the mushrooms until golden, about 6 minutes. Add wine, lemon juice and kirsch and simmer 2 minutes. Return the onion to the saucepan.

In a medium bowl, whisk milk, flour, dry mustard and roasted garlic paste together and add to the saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Lower the heat to medium-low and stir in the cheeses until melted. Stir in the ham and chicken and cook about 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Add the pasta to the cheese sauce and chicken. Serve sprinkled with parsley.

Excellent Recipe
I made this last night for dinner and everyone went for seconds, I did for get to use the fresh parsley and only had a little white wine for the mushrooms so I added a splash of red. This is one of the keeper recipes that I will make again. Enjoy!
