Meatlovers! If using protein, cook in a medium non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil. If using diced chicken, pat dry, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally over medium heat until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer, pat dry, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally over medium-high heat until no pink remains and steak strips reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using Impossible Burger, stir often over medium-high heat, breaking up burger until heated through, 7-9 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel and halve shallot. Slice halves into thin strips.
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Stem and coarsely chop oregano.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and half the garlic (reserve remaining for bread) to hot pan and stir occasionally until soft and aromatic, 1-2 minutes.
Add mushrooms and stir occasionally until beginning to brown, 2-3 minutes.
Add tomatoes, oregano, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until softened, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer vegetables to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Cream Sauce
Return pan used to cook vegetables to low heat. Add cream to hot pan and bring to a gentle simmer.
Once simmering, add Parmesan (reserve a pinch for garnish), garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir constantly until thickened, 3-4 minutes.
Remove from burner.
While sauce cooks, cook pasta.
Cook the Penne
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and return to pot. Add cream sauce and vegetables to pot and stir until thoroughly combined.
If sauce is too dry, add reserved pasta water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
While pasta cooks, toast baguette.
Toast Baguette and Finish Dish
Halve baguette and place on prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Top evenly with 1 tsp. olive oil, remaining garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Toast in hot oven until golden brown, 7-9 minutes.
