ISO Creamy Pasta Recipe

I am sitting here at work browsing the forum (as I often am) and these ideas pop into my head of things to try to cook and get good at cooking etc.

Just now I had the thought of a nice creamy pasta dish, maybe with some chicken breast involved. For some reason I have fettuccine pasta pictured in a nice tangle of creamy goodness, with some chicken breast pieces mixed in.

Anybody have some recipes that can point me in the right direction?

And I must add, no mushrooms (collective sigh) as my wife does not like them.

Here's one Allen makes: Discuss Cooking Community - View Single Post - Alfredo.....

Then top with some beautiful slices of chicken, fresh off of the grill.

Thanks for that one Jkath.

The only worry I have with stocks etc is that it is difficult to buy good quality stock here in Aus, and making it myself is ok I guess, but I would not be able to use it all in time before it goes off. I guess it is only a table spoon in this case so it won't matter too much. Sounds beautiful though.

I also found this posted in another thread by Bilby.

How about a chicken stroganoff? The recipe I use takes about 15 mins and could easily substitute chicken strips for beef. I never use beef anyway as I prefer veal stroganoff. Start by cutting the breast meat into strips and placing into a plastic bag (a freezer bag is good) with enough flour to coat the strips. Shake to coat. Pan fry diced onion and garlic in some oil, then add the chicken strips (just shake off excess flour before adding). You want the pan hot so that you brown the strips but not over cook. Add sliced mushrooms. Add dried parsley, dried chives, salt and pepper, and a very good blob of tomato paste. Stir to mix through. Add enough sour cream to make the sauce, mixing to combine. You may need to add more tomato paste or seasoning. Serve over cooked fettucine.

Saute chicken chunks in basil oil with lots of fresh lemon squeezed in occasionally. Let the chicken cook until pretty much done. At the end toss in some chiffonade of fresh basil.

In another skillet make an alfredo.

When done toss it all together.

Thanks - now I want this

(yes middie - I'm going to have to make it too)

suzi - I will make pasta and put it in my bowl. I will coddle an egg or use a pasteurized egg (but I really don't care) and...put pasta in bowl, toss in egg yolk and stir, add butter, cream and Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, and eat like crazy!

OR - (don't laugh) just add cottage cheese to hot pasta in a bowl. You might have to nuke it to get the cottage cheese melty but you won't believe how wonderful it is. I will also add dried parsley, garlic powder, and salt. It's a seriously quick meal! Got this from a member years ago and LOVED it!
