When it comes to Pasta, i prefer it in a white sauce, although my youngest son likes red sauce. I would normally keep some pasta for him and mix it with a red sauce. The things we do for love….
Even though the method of cooking is uncomplicated, but the list of ingredients is a bit long.
I have experimented in a past with lots of different variations of this dish, and this one i like most.
Chicken breasts- 500 g
Fettuccine (or any other pasta)- 2 packets ( cooked as per instructions on a packet)
Mushrooms- 200 g, sliced.
Garlic- 3-5 cloves, sliced
Spring onions- small bunch, chopped
White wine- 250 ml
Fresh cream- 150 g
Chicken stock- 250 g
Plain flour- 2 tablespoons
Salt, pepper to taste
Dry Italian spices – 1 table spoon
Cut chicken in 2 cm cubes, salt pepper and spices. heat an oil in a pan and cook garlic for a minuet or so add chicken and cook till nice golden color.
In a same pan add more oil and mushrooms, cook till golden,add spring onions cook for a minuet more, set aside.
In a sauce pan heat cream, stock, wine and heat it trough, then mix a flour with a little water ( helps to avoid lumps) and add it to a sauce whilst whisking it. Cook till thickens to your desired consistency.
Add chicken and mushrooms to a sauce, stir for a couple of minuets.
At this stage i would normally add fettuccine and mix it in for a couple of minuets. As division of food is a bit of an issue in my family and i find that mixing it all together is better.
Serve with grated Parmesan.
